Mel G models for MacDonald
Kate Moss, Julien MacDonald and Mel G at London Fashion Week
Spice Girl Mel G proved a big hit on the catwalk when she stepped out to model Julien MacDonald's latest creations for London Fashion Week.
Cheered on by band members Victoria, Mel C and Emma, Scary Spice strode out at the Roundhouse in Camden like a seasoned professional to boost the Welsh designer's up-and-coming profile.
Her modelling appearance meant the show was the hottest ticket in town for London's glitterati - the audience included Jade and Bianca Jagger and a host of the capital's trendsetters.
For the chart-topping band it was a chance for a night on the town together.
Posh Spice's husband David Beckham was busy playing for Manchester United in the team's 3-0 win over Sturm Graz in their Champions League tie in Austria.
Sporty Spice, Melanie Chisholm, has recently been launching her solo career by promoting her new album with a number of appearances on stage and television.
Baby Spice Emma Bunton has also been preparing for a presenting role next month. She will have her own slot for the VH-1 video music channel.
MacDonald considers Merthyr move
Earlier this year Julien MacDonald was reported to be coming back to his home town of Merthyr Tydfil to set up a factory producing some of his exclusive designs.
The catwalk king is considering moving part of his expanding fashion empire to Wales and held talks with the WDA about sites.
One of Britain's most successful young designers, he is planning a new label Julien MacDonald - Made in Wales and wants a small workshop to manufacture hand knitted products.
