Melanie Brown's Color Run Outfit Vs. A Normal Human Woman's Color Run Outfit
The Color Run is the perfect place for a Spice Girl. Melanie Brown's Color Run outfit was one part Scary Spice, one part Sporty Spice. She took the streets of Los Angeles with her teen daughter and a group of friends to get a little messy and make some memories at the marathon. Actually, come to think of it, her Color Run experience didn't look much different than mine.
The former Spice Girl and current America's Got Talent judge posted pictures on social media all day long of the colorful event. She partnered with Shout to run what she told People was her first-ever 5k. The Color Run was also my first ever 5k experience, and while I didn't quite get the outfit memo that she did, I'm sure we both had an equal amount of fun.
Channeling her inner Sporty Spice, Brown rocked printed leggings with an all-white tutu for the event. With her hair in high pigtails and a headband to show her Color Run pride, the star was all set for the big run. Even covered in bright orange powder, she looked like she was having the time of her life. Here's how her outfit compared to mine.
The Outfit: Mel B's Version
Her printed black and white chevron leggings and all-white tutu got a little more colorful by the end of the race, naturally. She kept things glam with a gold watch and bangle, which are both a little more high-end than what most people would rock while running a 5k.
The Outfit: My Version
I kept it simple with a white t-shirt and a pair of running shorts. Unlike Scary Spice, I decided to leave my gold jewelry at home for the event, but I did rock the same headband! Does that make me a Spice Girl?
The Accessories: Mel B's Version
When you're sponsored by a partner of the event, you get a whole lot of accessories to go along with it. Instead of just the race bib and shirt that every participant gets, she also received an extra t-shirt, headband, and even a tutu for the run.
The Accessories: My Version
My bag of goodies just came with a t-shirt, tattoo, and race bib, but I did splurge for the water-bottle and sunglasses to wear on the big day.
The Makeup: Mel B's Version
Brown chose to keep it fresh-faced and fabulous for her first 5k. With the exception of some mascara, the star left the makeup at home.
The Makeup: My Version
Like Mel B, I didn't wear anything other than mascara. Although, by the end of the race, my corn starch-based makeover seemed a bit more cake-y than hers did.
I think it's safe to say that the former Spice Girl had way more style than I did for the big race. Maybe on my next Color Run I'll channel my inner Scary Spice and give her a run for her money.
