First the spice, now the dazzle. Melanie Brown, a.k.a. Mel B. of the Spice Girls, is following in the footsteps of Kristen Bell and Kristin Cavallari as the latest celebrity guest designer for ShoeDazzle.com. For her creation, Brown used rhinestones to bling out the heel of a nude pump. “It was kind of a no-brainer,” Brown said of the collaboration. “I get to design and help people out.” All of Brown’s work with the site — from meeting with company co-founder Kim Kardashian to putting the finishing touches on her bejeweled creation — was featured on her Style network reality show, “It’s a Scary World.” In a recent episode, Brown went to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (above) to design her shoe with those who would benefit from its proceeds. “I wanted to get [the kids’] input,” she said. Their requests? “They wanted to make sure it would go with everything. One of the little boys actually wanted the inside to be soft and comfortable, so we put in extra padding.” A portion of the proceeds will benefit the hospital and the Ronald McDonald House.
