“The Laurence Olivier Awards” – Melanie Chisholm In Victoria Beckham Collection

It took a while, but one of Victoria Beckham’s former Spice Girl band mates has finally worn a piece from her dress collection.

Melanie Chisholm aka Mel C arrived at “The Laurence Olivier Awards” which was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Sunday, wearing a Victoria Beckham Fall 2009 black gown.

The black gown with paillette detailed shoulder pads and a black sash tied to the waist is gorgeous on her.

Not a hint of Sporty Spice.

My only issue – yes I’m being picky – is that Victoria has already worn this gown.

VB wore it to Elton John’s 2009 Oscar Party.

So now instead of us admiring how great Mel looks in this gown, we will be comparing her to Victoria – and we all know that there’s only one winner in that situation.

The singer paired her dress with Vicky’s favourite shoes: Trib Two’s.

Mel C also performed on the night wearing another VB Fall 2009 gown, which has been worn by Erin Wasson.
