Girl Power! The Spice Girls Rock The Olympic Closing Ceremony
It was the moment we’d all been waiting for after seeing snaps of Posh, Ginger, Baby, Sporty and Scary reunited and rehearsing last week, and the Spice Girls didn’t let us down at last night's Olympic Closing Ceremony. Arriving on stage in light-up personalised black cabs, the fivesome stormed the stage, performing Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life. Each Spice rocked a modern day update on their signature 90’s looks. Victoria Beckham went vampy in a dramatic custom made Giles Deacon dress, while patriotic popstrel Geri Halliwell worked a red and gold drop waist dress with a Union Jack bustle back. Staying true to her Baby Spice alter-ego, Emma Bunton donned a hot pink, sequin shouldered dress, Mel C looked suitably sports luxe in a white jumpsuit, ditching the 90’s Adidas trainers for metallic wedge hi-tops, and Mel B swapped leopard print for sparkles in an embellished Zuhair Murad catsuit.
The girls must have had just as much fun off stage too, as Emma later Tweeted a picture of herself, Geri and Mel B partying till dawn with Liam Gallagher with the caption, ‘Party till the break of dawn, and Mel is still in her outfit #spicegirlsolympics’. Now that’s what we call a comeback! GG
