6:00 AM Philippine time is officially the highlight of my month. Spice Girls, the 1990s girl group who made ‘Girl Power’ possible, performed during the Closing Ceremony of the Olympic games in London. I seriously didn’t sleep just to see them again and it was all worth it. I loved them when I was a child (I wanted to be Baby Spice aka Emma Bunton) and you could imagine my excitement when I saw them again, all five of them, since they disbanded around a decade ago. Below are some highlights of the performance:
Posh, Ginger, Baby, Sporty, and Scary werrrking it! Yes, they absolutely still got it; they look better than ever!
Melanie Chisholm or Mel C, in all her sporty glory (pun definitely intended), wears JD Sports. Performance level pa rin! She has always been the best performer (and singer) in the group.
And Melanie Brown (Mel B/Scary Spice) looking feisty in a Zuhair Murad bodysuit. She was the queen of catsuits back in the day so this is just perfect!
Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, wearing Giles Deacon. It’s nice to see her have fun again! I wish I’ll look as hot as that when I’m 38.
Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, wearing Suzanne Neville. Her Union Jack dress got an upgrade. Fabulous!
My favorite, Emma Bunton also Baby Spice, wearing Maggie Cooke. She still looks lovely and adorable. Talk about aging gracefully! She’s 36. 🙂
This was the Spice Girls during the 1997 BRIT Awards, where Ginger made headlines with her Union Jack dress, making it one of the most iconic moments in pop culture. Later on, the Union Jack was seen in every clothing piece.
Here’s a video of their whole performance during the Olympic Games Closing Ceremony:
And their awesome Pepsi commercial in 1996. Remember when those shoes were the fad? I was heartbroken when my mom couldn’t buy a pair for me. Haha
