The 'Spice Girls' made sure their 2019 world tour kick-started with all the glitz and glamour. For the opening night on Friday in Dublin, the singers and their dancing troupe wore 100 costumes adorned with one million Swarovski crystals.
Costume designer Gabriella Slade worked with Baby (Emma Bunton), Ginger (Geri Halliwell), Scary (Mel B) and Sporty (Melanie C) Spice to reimagine their 90's looks, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"It's an absolute dream job to design for a tour like this, and to be working with such brilliant women as the Spice Girls," Slade said in a statement.
"The use of Swarovski crystals is really important and integral in designing for a pop show -- it really elevates the costumes. You can always tell it's a Swarovski crystal costume, even from the back of the stadium!" she added.
Baby wore a shimmering hot pink dress with a long trail, while Ginger donned a Union Jack gown. A long-sleeved leopard-print jumpsuit with deep neckline was the pick for Scary and an "Olympian outfit" for Sporty.
Swarovski executive board member Nadja Swarovski wanted to collaborate with Slade to "celebrate the amazing, empowering and iconic spirit of Girl Power for the 'Spice World' tour," she said in a statement. "We are thrilled to help magnify the magic and dazzle of this stellar show."
The 13-day tour is set to conclude on June 15 in London.
