Victoria Beckham Reflects on Spice Girls Days: ‘We Set Trends’

Victoria Beckham is looking back at the trends set by The Spice Girls. 

The all-girl group revolutionized fashion in the ’90s with their bold clothing and quirky personas. Millions of girls wanted to be like them and began to adopt each band member’s style in an effort to resemble Baby Spice, Sporty Spice, Scary Spice, Ginger Spice, or Posh Spice. The reason why The Spice Girls had such an influence over fashion at the time was because they did not care, Beckham said.

“I look at us all, and it makes me smile because we didn’t care,” she said, according to Daily Local News. “Whether it was fashion or beauty, we didn’t care. We wore what made us feel good. We weren’t worried, ‘Is this the newest, coolest?’ We set trends because there was no fear.”

The Spice Girls were not just a band, they were a brand. It was not long before Spice Girls shoes, deodorants, and even lollipops were being sold. Then in 1997 the group got their own movie, “Spice World.” Now there are talks that the girls will get together to make a second film. 

The Sun reported earlier this week that Geri Horner (Ginger Spice) is driving the project and that Melanie C (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), and Mel B (Scary Spice) are tentatively on board. They are hoping that Beckham, who was famously known as Posh Spice, will also participate; however, her reluctance to join the group on tour may signal a struggle to get her involved. 

Beckham has shut down rumors on several occasions that she would join The Spice Girls for a reunion tour and in January revealed why she chose to leave the band in the first place in a letter to herself that was published in British Vogue.

“Remember years ago, watching your dear friend Elton John on stage in Las Vegas,” she wrote. “He performed ‘Tiny Dancer’ as if it were the first time, and you realized this was like oxygen for him. It was a life-changing moment — while singing and dancing was fun for you, it wasn’t your passion.”

Beckham recalled how, after that show, she knew it was time to discover her own dreams.

“It was time to step away from being a Spice Girl,” she continued. “For the first time, you were venturing out on your own, and it was terrifying. It was scary to close a chapter that defined you.”

Since her days as “Posh Spice,” Beckham has built a solo fashion empire and become a fashion icon around the world. Looking to the future, Beckham said she was excited for the next chapter of her life.

“First you found this passion in fashion and, most recently, beauty. What comes next? I’m dying to know,” she wrote.
