Geri Halliwell wants her Union Jack dress back for Spice Girls reunion
After wearing it to the 1997 Brit Awards, Geri sold the dress in an auction in 1998 raising £41,000 for charity. However, an inside source has told the Sun she now wants to buy it back from the auction winner - the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, no matter how much it costs.
The source told the newspaper: “Geri has told the reunion team she wants to wear the dress on stage again. It can’t be a copy, it has to be the real thing. It could cost a bob or two to get back but she wants them to pay whatever it takes.”
“Borrowing it isn’t really an option as it may need some altering. Geri is a bit less curvy than she was in 1997.”
“The girls want their new shows to feel current, to reflect how they’ve all moved on since the band split. But these shows will be on a massive scale, with lots of costume changes. Geri’s dress would fit nicely with a section where they all return to their original look.”
