The former Spice Girl and current "America's Got Talent" judge hit the beach in Mexico earlier this month for a little vacation with husband Stephen Belafonte -- where she put her killer bikini bod in display while rocking some long braids and a totally fresh face.
While the dreads aren't our favorite look on the 39-year-old mother of three, we gotta give major props to that physique. Wow!
Thankfully, the 'do didn't last -- as she was seen rocking a much sleeker mane at last night's "AGT" season finale.
Earlier this week, Mel sat down with Larry King on "Larry King Now," where she opened up about the real reason her "Girl Power" group split.
"We didn't really break up. We had a five year plan that kind of got shortened after three years," Scary Spice says. "We were all eventually gonna go our own way anyway, we knew that this was a platform. We always knew Victoria was going to go into fashion, Mel C was going to do music, Emma wanted to do radio, I kind of wanted to do a bit of everything. We kind of had that understanding."
Mel added that, "When Geri left the group [early], it was bad. She left on my birthday and didn't tell anybody. We had the rest of the tour."
She also goes on to say that things were bitter between her and Halliwell for "a long time" -- but it's behind them now.
