Hey, Spice Girls fans! Would you like to get your hands on the real thing? Spice Girls -, , and Mels B and C are giving away some of their most famous costumes for charity. I mean from catsuits to Union Jack dresses and platform trainers, you know, the iconic wears that influenced a generation of wardrobes.
The Girl Power outfits from the past 16 years will be put for grabs at a star-studded benefit gala to correspond with the launch of new musical Viva Forever! in London’s West End this December.
Victoria, 38, said that she still got all her costumes and it would be fantastic thing to do to put up all those for charity.
While Geri’s Union Jack dress that she worn at the 1997 Brit awards, is on display at the Hard Rock Café in Las Vegas, or you can get your hands on some of Posh’s tight black leather and PVC dresses or even the leopard-print all-in-ones worn by Mel B, 37. Before Geri, 39, forgets, she is donating some basque-style minidresses.
The aim of the sale is to raise funds for Save The Children and Children In Need was first suggested by Victoria at the end of the band’s 2008 reunion tour. There’s one item that she will gladly see under the auctioner’s hammer and that is the girls’ wedge trainers or Buffalo shoes.
Suddenly Geri quipped: “It was the Buffalo shoes that Victoria really wants to wear again! She hated them, she wouldn’t wear them.”
Smiling, Victoria retorted: “No, I didn’t, no really... I just didn’t want to wear them myself.”
