'Viva Forever' Spice Girls Musical Launch
The Spice Girls returned to the hotel they trashed in their 1997 'Wannabe' video today to launch the Sprice Girls musical, 'Viva Forever'. Instead of running about the place dancing on tables, pulling off table cloths and sitting on an old man's lap, the fearsome five-some struck a well rehearsed pose in designer duds (no pleather or Buffaloes in site. Boo!).
While I do love their polished, glossy 2012 style, I find myself longing for the original 90s hair, make-up and, most of all, the fashion! Growing up, I was a Spice Girls freak who owned a 'Girl Power' top and blue and white Buffalo trainers and more than a few times pretended to be Posh.
If I have to pick a style winner from the 'Viva Forever' launch, it would have to be Mel C in her chic white sheath dress as the others look to heavy and dark for Summer and Geri disappointed in dull lace when she should have made like it was 1997 and put on a union jack and flashed her knickers!
Viva the Spice Girls, but let's have more 1997 than 2012!
