Then & Now: Spice Girls!

Spice Girls rocked our socks at The Olympics closing ceremony yesterday with "Wannabe" and "Spice Up Your Life". But do you remember how it all started?! Click on the pictures to see Spice Girls then and now!
Spice Girls formed in 1994 and wanted us all to spice up our lives,
THEN: Geri Halliwell was at first called Sexy Spice but as the record label wanted to launch the group to a younger audience, she changed her stage name to Ginger Spice. Even with the new nick she was the outspoken, provokative hottie of the group. Since the split, Geri released three soloalbums and had a hit with single "It's Raining Men" in 2001.NOW: In May 2006 Geri gave birth to daughter Bluebell Madonna. Sacha Gervasi is reportedly the child's father, but this is unconfirmed by Geri. In 2010, Geri stood in as a guest judge on British The X Factor for Dannii Minogue at the Glasgow auditions and then again in 2012 at the Liverpool auditions. Geri is said to be working on her fourth studio solo album.
The group singed a multimillion deal with Pepsi and appeared on their events worldwide.
THEN: Emma Bunton was Baby Spice, the cutie of the group. Her style was girly and childish with piggytails and Pink ribbons. She was the youngest member and loved for her smiley babydoll persona.NOW: In 2006 Emma finished third on the tv-programme "Strictly Come Danceing". She has played minor roles in Bollywood films and tv-series as well as presented tv shows in the UK. Emma will appear in a duet on Mel C's new album.
In 1998, Geri unexpectedly left the group in the middle of numerous rumors. The four remaining members released their third album Forever in 2000.
THEN: Victoria Adams was Posh Spice. As we all know she married footballer David and became a Beckham. In Spice Girls Victoria was the quiet, shy one that went unnoticed. But after the split she took revenge...NOW: becoming the most successful ex-Spice. Victoria is a designer, fashionista and entreprenour. She has launched perfumes, Jeans and runway clothing. Business woman Victoria is by far the most famous among the girls today.
This fall Spice Girls The Musical will open at the Piccadilly Theatre in London.
THEN: Melanie "Mel B" Brown was Scary Spice. Her out-going persona and cocky attitude made her the girl that stood out the most. She always had an answer to anything and spoke her mind freely.NOW: Mel B was involved in a headlines scandal as she became pregnant with american actor Eddie Murphy's child in 2006. Eddie initially refused to accept custody but later confirmed it's his baby. On a professional level, Mel B has been seen in small acting roles and as a judge on Australian The X Factor.
Who was your favorite Spice Girl?
THEN: Melanie "Mel C" Chisholm was Sporty Spice. She dressed in trainers, sporty bras and tracksuits. She would do handsprings on stage and give out an active energy.NOW: When Spice Girls broke up, Mel C had a successful solo career for a couple of years. She then disappeared from the spotlight and battled eating disorders. In 2009 Mel C gave birth to baby girl Scarlet Star. Her new solo album "Stages" will be released in September.
