When Melanie Brown used to perform as her Spice Girl alter ego Scary Spice, her look usually involved frosty eyeshadow, masses of corkscrew curls, and lip liner (it was the '90s, after all). Luckily, there's nothing scary about her look at this year's VMAs: her sleek layered hair and pretty violet eyeshadow make it clear she's not living in the past. If I had to fault her for anything, she may have gone just a tinge too bright on the blush, but I'm ready to forgive her for it. Are you?
