Mel B harks back to her Spice Girls days as she rocks space buns at the Venice Film Festival

She was well-known for rocking the funky hairstyle at the height of her Spice Girls fame in the 90’s.

And Mel B harked back to her previous style as she rocked space buns while arriving by taxi boat to the Excelsior Hotel during the 76th Venice Film Festival on Thursday.

The singer, 44, put on a cheerful display as she waved to fans while rocking an all-white ensemble.

Channeling her look from her early girl band days, the star styled her curly, brunette tresses into two buns atop her head. 

Mel went braless for the occasion, sporting a plain white vest top paired with white jogging bottoms adorned with colorful motifs.

The Wannabe hitmaker wrapped a matching jumper around her waist and added a pop of colour with a pair of bright, red trainers.

Accessorising her low-key look, Mel added a black leather rucksack and shielded her eyes from the blazing Italian sun with a pair of dark, rounded sunglasses.

Mel’s casual look is in stark contrast to the glitzy ensemble she rocked at the opening gala of the 76th Venice Film Festival on Wednesday. 

The beauty dazzled in a leopard print sequinned gown as she walked the red carpet.

Mel’s appearance comes after it was reported that Stephen has filed court documents demanding an increase in the monthly child support he receives.

The documents reportedly state that Mel should increase her monthly payments from the current $4,100, after she earned a staggering £2 million from the Spice Girls reunion tour.

Stephen has reportedly demanded his child support figure increase to around £14,000 a month. He and Mel were married from June 6th 2007 to December 15th 2017.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Mel B and Stephen Belafonte for comment.

Mel was locked in a bitter divorce battle which saw her pay ex-husband Stephen £287,000 in legal fees as their bitter court battle finally drew to a close.

The couple share custody of their daughter Madison, seven.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Juhas threw out both restraining orders that the warring couple had tried to slap on each other.

Instead the singer and Belafonte reached a mutual agreement to stay at least 200 yards away from each other.

The couple was also ordered to set aside £900,000 (around £450,000 each) when they sell their £6.5 million former marital home, to pay back taxes they owe for 2016.
