What does one wear to an America’s Got Talent live show? A sheer bodysuit, complete with strategically-placed embellishments, clearly. That’s the outfit former Spice Girl Melanie Brown picked out to wear last night, for season 12 of the stateside contest.

The 42-year-old, from Leeds, ensured all eyes were on her in the wow-factor number, the work of celebrity designer Rocky Gathercole.

The one-piece left the judge’s modesty intact thanks to jewels placed in all the right places, but still left her (enviable) figure almost entirely exposed.

Philippines-born designer Gathercole’s known for his renegade and radical ensembles. He’s crafted creations for everyone from Nicki Minaj Ariana Grande, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez in the past and knows how to ensure his model hits headlines.

His design formula is fairly notorious within the fashion industry: intricately beaded gowns, edgy bodysuits and gaudy headpieces are key looks of his – easy to see why his pieces are often reserved for the stage.

But it’s not just Mel B who’s worn one of Gathercole’s looks on the red carpet: Paris Hilton famously wore an embroidered, monochrome and flared number to Cannes Film Festival in 2014. But it was a gold corset worn by Katy Perry during her ‘Dark Horse’ music video that really put Gathercole on the map.
