Let me be honest -- I was a bit more than obsessed with the Spice Girls as a little girl. And with good reason, too! These chicks were the coolest, chicest gals around, and they could sing and dance like nobody's business. For the longest time, I seriously wished I was Baby Spice, but that's another story...
So as you could expect, I was beyond excited when I heard that the Spice Girls would be performing at the Olympics closing ceremony! And let me just say, the girls still have it. Last night, the original fab five reunited for a fashion-filled performance during the Olympics closing ceremony, and to the fashion world's joy, they rode in on blinged out cabs, lit up in colors to fit their personal fashion personality. So which spice was the most stylish last night? Let's break it down.
As my fave Spice Girl, Emma has always held a special fashion spot in my heart, and last night she didn't disappoint! The star was sweet yet sexy in her hot pink Maggie Cooke mini-dress. Emma was always the girly, sweet star, and this plunging neckline and the high fashion silhouette of this number helped her graduate into the feminine femme we always knew she was.
Mel C. was always the sporty gal's best friend, and I dare say it, she always made the athletic look seem fun, not sloppy. Well, Sporty Spice has grown up quite a bit, and her style has evolved even more over the years. Last night, Mel flaunted those toned arms in a white jumpsuit with glam detailing. The best part? Those metallic sneakers!
Melanie Brown (“Scary Spice”)
You don't need to tell Melanie B. that animal print is hot to give her reason to rock the trend. Girl was the original leopard lady, after all. The feisty Spice Girl didn't disappoint last night in her sexy Zuhair Murad bodysuit. The skinsuit wonder fit Mel's body like a glove and helped her show off her sexy shape in a more mature way than those sometimes cheesy looks from her past.
As true Spice Girl fans will remember, Posh was always one of the most fashionable ladies in the band. Little Gucci dress, anyone? And last night the singer turned successful fashion designer (and ahem, wife to hottie David Beckham!) showed us why black always was and still is her best color. Victoria looked beautiful in her high-low Giles Deacon dress.
Even though Geri strayed from the group way back when, we forgive her, and we're so thrilled that she joined the gals looking as Ginger-iffic as ever. Last night, the sexy gal flaunted her curves and her signature British pride in a red strapless Suzanne Neville dress with gold details. To finish off the look, Geri adorned her feet in glittery gold booties and threw an amazing Halo & Co gold filigree tiara atop her perfect blonde locks.
