The Spice Girls were amazing at the Olympic Closing ceremony. Each girl looked like they were loving it (even Victoria, she would get slated for smiling) as much as the public were, and they undeniably stole the show (reunion tour like now please). Anyway, apart from themselves and the production values, the outfits they all wore were particularly amazing. Each were like a modern, mature version of the persona’s that had been given back in the 90’s. So, you’re probably wondering ‘Who were they wearing and how can I look like that (on a budget though)?’. Well here’s your answer:
First up is Victoria Beckham, who lived up to her ‘Posh’ label in this embellished black dress with train, which was designed by Giles Deacon. This dress was paired with a pair of black stilettos, and the only word that can describe how this looks on her is ‘perfect’. A classic, sophisticated take on her 90’s look, it also shows how much of a fashionista she has become. To get Posh’s look, get this Hi Lo Black dress from Rare at Asos.com (priced at £38.50). To fully achieve the look, this dress can then be worn with the platform heels (as shown in the picture, also from Asos.com), which are priced at £30.
Next is Geri Halliwell, who wore a beautiful red dress with gold detailing, which was designed by Suzanne Neville. The dress was completed with a Union Jack flag, something which the singer is famed for. The look also included a bizarre tiara, and an odd pair of gold boots. The dress itself is beautiful, it is just a little bit over-done with the accessories. To get this look, try this red babydoll dress with a gold trim, which is by Elise Ryan at Asos.com (priced at £36). Rather than the boots, this dress would be better paired with these Jeffrey Campbell black and gold wedges, which are priced at £105 and are available at Office.
Emma also reinvented her ‘baby spice’ label here in this pink dress with sequin detailing by Maggie Cook. This dress was teamed up with a pair of sequin heels, which further exaggerated her ‘girlie’ persona. This dress was perfect for Miss Bunton as it suits her and the personality she is famed for. To achieve this look, try this studded skater dress by boohoo.com, which costs £25. Team that with these gold glitter platform heels (£44.99 from New Look) and a slightly more casual take on Emma’s costume from Sunday.
Unlike the previous looks, Mel C somewhat ditched her ‘sporty’ persona in this chic white jumpsuit by JD Sports. However, she played on this persona with the bang on trend silver wedge trainers, which bought back her sporty edge. This is arguably the best look out of the five as it is something that Melanie C would wear now too as a solo artist as well as in the band. To get this look, try this white jumpsuit by Zara, which costs £12.99. To add a touch of sport to the look, get these silver wedge trainers, which are by Topshop and cost £40. This jumpsuit can easily be glammed up too with a pair of heels, so it’s a real bargain.
The final look is this beautiful gold Zuhair Murad cat suit, which was worn by Mel B. This outfit is daring and more than lives up to her ‘scary’ persona. Coupled with these gold Louboutins and we have a perfect outfit (it’s no wonder she didn’t take it off until the morning). Obviously this look is hard to get on a budget, but try this gold sequin playsuit by Rare at Topshop (costs £55) and pair it with these gold sequin platform shoes from New Look (which cost £59.99) to achieve Mel’s golden goddess look.
