Ahhhh! There is almost nothing in this world better than a Spice Girls reunion. London, the host country of the 2012 summer Olympic games, brought out their best stars for the closing ceremony. The Spice Girls were definitely highly anticipated and the highlight of the whole show. The 90s girl group performed their hits “Spice Up Your Life” and “Wannabe” on sequined taxis. Their performance was the most talked about event per minute on Twitter this weekend.
All 5 girls looked fabulous. Baby Spice Emma Bunton rocked a cute pink mini with structured shoulders by Maggie Cooke. Mel C. stayed true to her Sporty Spice persona and wore a white jumpsuit with some fab silver wedge sneakers. Geri Halliwell didn’t wear a union jack dress as many had hoped but did include a nod to her country in the bustle of her red dress by Suzanne Neville. A ginger who wears red definitely gets points in my book. Mel B. looked stunning in a gold sequin jumpsuit by Zuhair Murad. I was glad to see how fab her body looked and I’m obsessed with Scary Spice’s golden brown wavy hair. Last but not least, Victoria Beckham wore a custom made Giles Deacon dress that was inspired by look 3 from the Fall 2012 collection. Posh Spice was always the fashion diva and performed flawlessly with a flowing train.
Listening to my Spice Girls playslist all week and crossing my fingers for more reunions.
Victoria Beckham has added another category to her ever-growing brand. The pop-diva turned fashion designer has created a line of eyewear in collaboration with the London-based bespoke frame maker Cutler and Gross. The optical line was inspired by necessity as she told WWD, ‘I do need to wear glasses but I haven’t found glasses that suit me or that I particularly like. I’ve always been quite self-conscious, so that’s why I’ve decided to do them myself.’ We’ve always seen VB in her standard over-sized sunnies, especially since launching her own collection of sunglasses in 2009. She loves wearing her own designs so it will be nice to see her wear this new line.
The collection will feature six different styles, each offered in three colors. The shapes range from feminine to unisex frames, including the heavy square-rimmed pair that both Victoria and her soccer-player husband, David Beckham, wear. The frames will be handmade in Italy, featuring a “V” on the tips and pearl-oyster interior lining. One of these luxe frames will cost you between $410-$530. No word on what US retailers will be carrying the collection once it’s available in January. Hopefully it’s Neiman Marcus!
For some time now I’ve had a girl crush on Victoria Beckham. It’s nothing too serious but I just love her style…it’s so posh. [had to do it…] She is just always well put together. From running errands with her boys or a red carpet appearance with the hubby–Mr. David Beckham [who isn’t too shabby either], Posh Spice knows how to step out in style. CONTINUE READING
