The Olympics closing ceremony reunited famed girl group the Spice Girls, who inspired many fashion trends among teens and young women in the 90s, including towering platform shoes. MTV Style has revealed details on the band's outfit choices and provided a look at the fashion statements made at their comeback show.
Victoria Beckham stayed true to her "Posh" aspirations in a Giles Deacon mini that revealed her legs. The British designer updated her classic look "with tiers of ruffles and a giant high-low train that flapped behind her in the wind."
Geri Halliwell, famous for accessorizing the Union Jack in her heyday, strutted about in a shiny red strapless dress by Suzanne Neville that still featured a British flag -- albeit less prominently than in the past -- and "finished off her outfit with gold accents: glittery ankle boots and a sparkling tiara."
"Baby Spice" Emma Bunton turned back the clock in a pink Maggie Cooke dress, updated for a more mature look with "glittery structured shoulders and a low-dipping neckline."
Eighteen years after the Spice Girls took the world by storm, Melanie B wore a "glittery gold and skintight" catsuit designed by Zuhair Murad and left her "signature wild hair" flowing.
Mel C, aka "Sporty Spice," burned calories on the stage in a white tracksuit, hopping about in silver platform sneaker wedges.
Back in 1996, the British all-female band put itself on the map with the debut single "Wannabe" and introduced the whole world to the concept of "Girl Power," which doubled as the name for the group's first international tour. The Spice Girls parted ways in 2001 and were briefly reunited in 2007.
