On a night dedicated to a British cultural icon it was Mel C who stood out as theatre land celebrated Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 70th birthday on Thursday evening.
The Spice Girl, 44, caught the eye in a floral print silk crepe de chine midi dress as she made an entrance at Drury Lane venue Theatre Royal ahead of the milestone celebration.
With a delicately cinched waistline the striking RIXO outfit drew attention to Mel’s slender physique, while a tasteful ruffled detail gave the overall look a distinctive flourish.

Fall for florals like Melanie in a Rixo dress
Floral prints suit every season. Whether you prefer graphic patterns or ditsy motifs, this trend will never fade. In fact, we’ll be channeling dark, moody blooms right up until spring, and it looks like Mel C is in agreement.
The singer looked blooming fabulous in this dress by Rixo. Known for their quirky spaceship prints, the brand have unveiled a more feminine offering with this number.
The demure silhouette features a high neck, gathered waist and ruffle skirt, creating a standout look. We adore the all-over floral motif and contrast color palette!

Rounding things off with a pair of strappy peep-toe heels, the singer was an engaging sight as she rubbed shoulders with guests including Sir Eton John, David Furnish and Piers Morgan.
Allowing her dress to dominate, Mel opted for limited accessories on the night, while her brunette locks were neatly styled with a simple centre parting.
With deft touches of make-up accentuating her features, the star beamed at onlookers as she made her way out of the venue and into a waiting cab later that night.

Mel was on hand to celebrate as musical theatre legend Sir Andrew celebrated his milestone birthday in style.
Other guests to attend the event on Thursday evening included Rowan Atkinson, Sir Michael Caine and former pop star Jason Donovan, who famously worked with the pioneering composer on Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
Christopher Biggins was also seen as guests filed into the Theatre Royal, as was Sir Andrew's long-term collaborator Tim Rice.

Mel's own appearance at the event comes after she claimed former band-mate Victoria Beckham had dug her heels in about not participating in a tour with the recently reformed pop group.
She told The Sun: 'Victoria has been quite vocal, it’s really not something she wants to do at this time. I think it has to be all five, so it’s tricky.
'It’s very early stages, we’re not talking about new music or going out on the road together at this time. It was just getting together to reignite all the things that we have had together and to work with (manager) Simon (Fuller).'
Addressing rumours that the Wannabe singers would be performing at London Pride, she added: 'That would be a very fitting place for the Spice Girls to reform but unfortunately I don’t think you’ll be seeing the Spice Girls on stage this year.'
