Geri Halliwell Dress – Flying the flag for Britain
The Spice Girls — Baby, Ginger, Posh, Scary, and Sporty — were the most successful girl singing group of all time.
The girls remain iconic, making costuming up like a Spice Girl on Halloween one of the best and most popular costume ideas. You are particularly fortunate if you can convince four of your girlfriends to make up the foursome with you. (This is all assuming, of course, that you yourself are a girl. If you are a guy, it will just be creepy. Don’t go there.)
Ginger Spice a.k.a. Geri Halliwell may be the most popular Spice Girl as far as clothing is concerned. She has made the Union Jack flag dress one of the most famous and recognisable clothing items in history. In fact, the Union Jack costume might just as well be titled the Geri Halliwell dress. The Ginger Spice costume has become the ultimate symbol of girl power. The Ginger Spice dress is so iconic and well-loved, that it ended up on top in a poll to discover the most iconic dress of the last 50 years. The original Ginger Spice piece is recorded as the most expensive pop star clothing item sold at an auction.
Ginger first appeared in the Union flag dress —which she fashioned from a tea towel —during her 1997 British performance. The look quickly became insanely popular. Halliwell has recently capitalised on that signature look. She has designed a whole line of updated Union Jack outfits for her Next collection. The most stand-out of these outfits is a classier, much more modest, sequined version of the Union Jack dress. However, there are a number of different Union Jack clothing in this collection. There are Union Jack dresses, bikinis, and tops in the collection.
Halliwell’s future is looking bright. She is becoming something of a philanthropist with all of the proceeds garnered from her fashion line going to charity, namely Youth Sport Trust. In addition, she is planning a reboot of her musical career with a pop album soon to be released.
