The Spice Girls were one of the biggest girl bands of our time and we just can’t believe it has been 20 years since they first released their debut hit ‘Wannabe’ as 5 fresh-faced twenty something’s back in 1996.
Whilst the Spice Girls brought us hit after hit and became global sensations, they also stepped out in some pretty cringe-worthy outfits. But we would all be lying if we said we didn’t try to dress like we were the 6th honorary member growing up in the nineties (and attempted to be Geri’s replacement once she left in 1998).
They were huge fans of matching outfits, do you remember when they turned up to both the LA and London premiere of ‘Spiceworld: The Movie’ in identical suits flashing their bras? Not to mention the time they all opted for leather at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Then there was the time they were promoting Pepsi…
We will of course never forget Mel C’s endless tracksuit collection or Victoria’s love for an LBD. Then there’s Mel B’s obsession with Leopard print and Emma who loved to wear anything cute and girlie. But the most memorable look was of course Geri’s iconic Union Jack dress. Who never wore this to a fancy dress party?
The outrageous outfits would never be complete without at least one band member wearing some kind of crazy platform heel. Whether it was Geri’s red leather platform boots or Emma’s platform trainers they all loved a bit of a bulky shoe.
The girls may have now outgrown their Spice Girls days of leather jumpsuits and sequined mini dresses, but Victoria – who has become a fashion icon – still has a love for an LDB…
So let’s take a trip down memory lane and relive some of those outrageous outfit moments… Girl Power!
