Gucci – Geri Halliwell says BRITs dress was £5 tea towel after Dua Lipa celebrated it
Geri Halliwell revealed a £5 tea towel was behind the look of her iconic BRITs dress after it was celebrated by Dua Lipa.
Her look went down in history when she decided to wear the mini Union Jack dress to The BRIT Awards 24 years ago in 1997.
At the time, she took the stage by storm with the Spice Girls group.
It’s still talked about in fashion and celebrity circles today.
In fact, Geri said it was just a £5 tea towel on a Gucci dress.
At the latest BRITs, Hotter Than Hell hitmaker Dua performed in a Union Jack dress inspired by Ginger Spice’s little number.
Delighted Geri gushed it was “so special” to see the pop star wear the same look with a twist decades later.
She wrote: “Trust yourself…. This dress is a reminder to follow your instincts and be yourself.
“24 years ago I had an idea- to wear a Union Jack to celebrate The Brit Awards.
“Despite the doubts, I trusted my instincts and wore it anyway. All these years later to see it worn by a fellow sister is so special. #girlpower.
“P.S. it was £5 tea towel on a Gucci dress.”
Little Mix also gave a shout out to the Spice Girls during their acceptance speech.
The three-piece dedicated their Best British Group award gong to all the great bands who came before them, including the Spice Girls.
Geri sent Little Mix a gorgeous bouquet of flowers for the shout out at the star-studded ceremony.
Perrie Edwards revealed the handwritten note: “Dear Perrie, Congratulations. Thank you for the shout out. Love, Geri xxx [Spice Girls].”
