Spice Girls auction famous outfits to benefit children in need

If you grew up in the ‘90s then you probably get super excited whenever the Spice Girls come up in conversation – well, that is, if you were a fan. The iconic girl group, known for their spunky style and catchy tunes, has been making headlines this week, and this particular time it’s for giving back to charity.

Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) are auctioning off some of their most famous outfits from way back when.

“I’ve got all my costumes still. I can’t wait for Harper to grow a little so she can have some. But the rest I’d like to put up for charity. I think it would be a fantastic thing to do,” Beckham revealed.

Beckham is donating her little black dress that donned her “Posh;” Chisholm is handing over athletic track suits; Halliwell is getting rid of mini-dresses; Brown is donating leopard print items and Bunton is providing babydoll frocks.

All of their outfits benefit the U.K. charities Save the Children and Children in Need. Both organizations look after children and hope to better their lives.

In addition to benefiting others, the auction is being held to mark the group’s new musical “Viva Forever.” The musical is based on their music and tells the story of female friendship between four girls who enter their band onto a TV talent show. The show launches in December 2012.
