spice girls 1990s
By Rebecca Silverstein
Boy bands will always have a special place in our hearts -- and on the walls of our childhood bedrooms -- but it was girl groups who taught us about girl power. Take a look at where some of our favorite female trios, quartets and quintets are today.
Members: Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton, Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown, Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell, Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, Melanie "Sporty Spice" Chisholm
Then: Spice up your life! This '90s pop group created more girl power -- and sold more records -- than any other female group in history.
Now: Although the Spice Girls haven't released new music together since 2007, they reunited for a performance during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. They also came together for the December 2012 West End premiere of "Viva Forever: The Musical," a musical which chronicled the girls' rise to the top.
Still-pouty Victoria is the most famous former Spice Girl: She's a clothing designer and has four kids with her hot soccer star husband David Beckham. Mel C., who has continued performing as a solo artist, recently separated from property developer Thomas Starr; the former couple has one daughter. Mel B. juggles three daughters (including one with Eddie Murphy), a marriage to movie producer Stephen Belafonte, a solo music career and gigs as judge on Australia's "The X Factor" and co-host on Australia's "Dancing With the Stars." Geri is a single mother to daughter Bluebell, whose godmothers are Emma and Victoria, and has been putting out music as a solo artist since leaving the band in 1999. Emma has two sons, Beau and Tate, with her longtime partner Jade Jones.
