Mel B As You've Never Seen Her Before...

Mel B has been the real star of this year's X Factor, bringing a breath of fresh air to the judging panel - and a dash of brutal honesty.

And the star's fashion sense appears to have evolved as the show's gone on, too, creating a cool, sleek, edgier Mel B.

So, it comes as no surprise to see she's been embracing her funky side for a new photo shoot with Ponystep magazine.

Mel posed in a stunning wig (channelling Beyonce's recent fringe) and brand new Spring 2015 fashion collections for the magazine.

In one picture, she's seen posing in an on-trend polo-neck jumper tucked into sailor-inspired high-waisted black trousers.

She also works a host of spiky, gold rings sitting around her whopping engagement rock.

A source said, "Mel absolutely adored the shoot. She has really discovered a new style by deciding on outfits for the X Factor live shows twice a week. It has re-ignited her passion for fashion in a big way."

Richard Mortimer, the editor of Ponystep said, the star's 'Scary Spice' persona was nowhere to be seen on the day of the shoot. "Her forthright reputation preceeding her, I was half expecting a diva," he said. "The reality was quite different with Mel being a total pro, funny and easy to work with.

"What surprised me most was her willingness to embrace fashion and her eagerness to wear anything we asked. Slipping into poses as well as any fashion model, Mel's 20 years in the industry were obvious as she turned it out for the photographer. Mel B ain't scary, she's a pussycat!"
