Then and Now: Spice Girls

Although these ladies certainly warrant their own at-length post, I couldn't resist these then and now photos. I understand that the Spice Girls were marketed as characters rather than people, but their brand of supposed girl empowerment certainly led to some unfortunate costuming.


Spice Girls, then:



Spice Girls, now(ish):

I'm glad to see they at least kept the big shoes.

i used to love spice girls like crazy, believe it or not! i used to adore posh spice, i thought she was fantastic. until she had too much "surgical interventions" and went for the extreme dieting, i disrespect her, in that sense.

oh i LOVE mel b's shoes in the 2nd photo :D

I was obsessed with the Spice Girls. I always wanted to be Sporty but always had to be Ginger because of my red hair.

They look crazy different hey, and today they look even more different than that! Weird too think of how famous they were and now they are barely heard of!

I love Spice Girls with every fiber of my being although I'm way too old right now to start spotting these looks. Hahaha.

Me and my gang used to impersonate them all the time, I was Baby of course. We had our own Wanna Be dance routines.
