The Spice Girls are making sure they shine on their trek around the U.K. and Ireland with one million Swarovski crystals sewn onto their costumes.
The girl power originators, now a foursome after Victoria Beckham declined to join them for the reunion shows, are currently on their Spice World 2019 Tour, kicked things off in Dublin last week.
As well as delighting fans with their catchy pop tracks, the singers – Geri Horner, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Mel B – have also made sure their costumes bring the wow factor.
In a statement regarding their outfits, costume designer Gabriella Slade gushed: “It’s an absolute dream job to design for a tour like this, and to be working with such brilliant women as the Spice Girls. The use of Swarovski crystals is really important and integral in designing for a pop show – it really elevates the costumes. You can always tell it’s a Swarovski crystal costume, even from the back of the stadium!”
The Wannabe hitmakers are taking their show all over the U.K. before finishing in London for three nights at the city’s famous Wembley Stadium.
Among the 100 costumes worn by the singers and their dancers is a new take on Geri’s famous Union Jack dress, the animal prints that Mel B became famous for and glitzy sportswear for Mel C, aka Sporty Spice.
And Swarovski executive board member Nadja Swarovski jumped at the chance to work with Gabriella and the British stars.
“(We wanted to) celebrate the amazing, empowering and iconic spirit of Girl Power for the Spice World tour,” Nadja said. “We are thrilled to help magnify the magic and dazzle of this stellar show.”
