The original fab five got together for a Spice Girls reunion that has left the Internet floored. The pic marks the first time the ’90s girl group icons have been publicly photographed together since 2012.
The meeting went down at Geri Halliwell Horner‘s home in Hertfordshire, England, where Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, Victoria Beckham and Melanie Chisholm met to reportedly discuss upcoming projects.
Beckham shared the pic on her Instagram with the caption: “Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x #friendshipneverends #girlpower”
Rumors of a reunion tour swirled as recently as last year, but none came to fruition after Beckham expressed reluctance over the venture. “It is not happening. At some point you’ve gotta know when it’s time to say, ‘That was great’,” the 43-year-old said on British chat show This Morning last year.
Now the Sun reports that the quintet have agreed to join forces once again. “This is the pop reunion no one thought would ever happen again,” a source told the outlet. “But after a long period of negotiation Victoria agreed the time is right to work on new projects this year.”
“As it stands, they will be working together on a series of projects, which will include an album and a TV special celebrating the Spice Girls,” a source told The Sun last year. “And getting Victoria to agree has been a coup for everyone involved, given she has always been the person holding back on a reunion.”
Sources say that Beckham’s change of heart deals with the fact that she wants to make money to put back into her fashion brand. Beckham’s eponymous label was launched in September 2008 in a low-key presentation. By 2011, it had grown into a fixture of New York Fashion Week and a lower-priced Victoria by Victoria Beckham label was introduced.
In 2017, Beckham’s new collection for Target is including a wide range of sizes from XS to 3X for women. Beckham is also offering a new line for children’s wear.
There was an almost-reunion late last year, when all the Spice Girls but Mel B appeared in the video for Mel C’s new video, “Room For Love.”
