London: The Spice Girls are auctioning some of their most famous costumes for charity, which ranges from catsuits to PVC dresses and platform trainers. To coincide with the launch of new musical ‘Viva Forever!’ in London’s West End this December Girl Power outfits from the past 16 years will be put up for grabs at a star-studded benefit gala.
“I’ve got all my costumes still. I can’t wait for Harper to grow a little so she can have some,” a leading daily has quoted Victoria Beckham as saying.
“But the rest I’d like to put up for charity, I think it would be a fantastic thing to do. Everything we did at the time was great, it really was great. We watched a little video Geri put together and I think we were nearly all brought to tears,” she said.
While Halliwell’s Union Jack dress, which stole the show at the 1997 Brit awards, is on display at the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas, one could still get your hands on some of Posh’s tight black leather and PVC dresses or the leopard-print all-in-ones worn by Mel B, 37.
Mel C, 38, will donate Sporty’s trademark Adidas tracksuits and crop tops, and Emma, 36, is giving away a babydoll shift dress. Halliwell, meanwhile, is donating some basque-style minidresses.
The idea of the sale is to raise funds for Save The Children and Children In Need, which was first mooted by Victoria at the end of the band’s 2008 reunion tour. And one item she will happily see under the hammer is the girls’ wedge trainers – or Buffalos.
“It was the Buffalo shoes that Victoria really wants to wear again! She hated them – she wouldn’t wear them,” Halliwell said.
Grinning, Victoria quipped: “No, I didn’t, no really... I just didn’t want to wear them myself.”
