Don’t get your platform sneakers and your Union Jack dress yet!
Victoria Beckham, who was first known to the world as “Posh Spice”, is putting to rest the rumor (that she pretty much started by posting a photo of the fab five together) that she and the rest of the gals would be going on tour. On Feb. 2, Becks, Melanie “Mel C” Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Melanie “Mel B” Brown all sat down together for a lunch in London—and the Internet went crazy with delight, hoping they’d be hitting the road together soon.
But earlier today, the popstar-turned-designer made it clear: the Spice Girls are not touring.
“I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour,” said to Vogue during a preview of her autumn/winter 2018 collection, which shows in New York on Sunday morning, at New York Fashion Week.
However, the mother of four gushed over her lunch last week, telling Vogue, “It was so great to see the girls. We had such a fun lunch. It was really, really, really lovely. I still speak to them all individually, but for us all to get together was really lovely.”
As for a potential reunion in the future? Don’t rule it out—but it’s not happening any time soon.
Beckham explained, “There’s something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for. What is that in the future? What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming.”
However, it’s fashion that she’s all about these days—not being a pop icon. While at the preview, she said, “This is what I do.”
What about a menswear-inspired catsuit? Oh come on Posh, say you’ll be there!
