We’ve heard the rumours, had the teasers and seen the rehearsal pictures but at last we have photographic evidence of the Spice Girls performing as part of the Olympics Closing Ceremony!
The fabulous five took part in a symphony of British music that began with a white-T-shirt-wearing choir singing John Lennon’s Imagine. Oasis, Tinie Tempah and Jessie J also took part in the one-off musical bonanza that saw Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Mel C peforming their legendary hits Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life while standing a-top black cabs. Yeep!
Ginger wore red, Sporty wore white, Baby wore pink and Scary wore a glitzy gold jumpsuit but our eyes were on popstar-turned-designer Posh Spice who looked faboosh in a glorious strapless gown created by our very own Giles Deacon. The frock featured layers of fringed-edged black fabric with a mullet-esque hemline that was thigh-grazing at the front and floor-length at the back to showcase those slender pins.
Lady Becks tweeted earlier this afternoon ‘So excited!! X vb’ along with a snap of her silhouette wearing super-sexy knee-high boots and this evening, Grazia Daily has been treated an exclusive first look at Giles’ sketch of the design. WOW-EE:
Welcome back, Spice Girls! They followed a homage to British fashion which featured Burberry, Erdem, Stephen Jones and saw the finest home-grown catwalks – we’re talking Kate Moss, Naomi Campebll, Karen Elson, Jourdan Dunn, Stella Tennant, Lily Donaldson and Georgia May Jagger (PHEWF!) – taking to the catwalk stage while showcasing an array of Britain’s finest designs.
The likes of Boris Johnson and Prince Harry danced along to the spectacular and Kate Middleton looked typically demure in the very same printed Whistes frock that she wore to the Jubilee concert last month. If there’s one thing we can always count on it’s the DoC’s thriftiness. Hurrah for GB!
