According to Perez Hilton:

“Victoria Beckham has outrageous demands. Let’s just say that they are paying at least $15,000 for Victoria Beckham’s hair, make-up and stylist. In comparison, the other Spice Girls cost one-fourth of what Victoria is costing.”

4. 3. This rhinestone microphone might make a repeat appearance.

Victoria Beckham used it during the Spice Girls reunion tour in 2007. She recently tweeted about unearthing it, leading some to believe it might be part of the Olympic performance.

Rumors swirled that designer Gilles Deacon (a model from his 2011 show seen here) would be designing the outfits for the Spice Girls’ alleged Closing Ceremonies performance. Why? Because Victoria Beckham tweeted about it:

Morning fitting with @gilesgilesgiles, cuddle with @kegrand bunny!! X vb http://t.co/M2dpwbTx

— Victoria Beckham (@victoriabeckham)

Grazia Daily reports that Deacon isn’t dressing the whole crew, meaning might be dressing only Posh.

8. 5. Zuhair Murad is also designing outfits.


Murad is known for outfitting celebrities from Jennifer Lopez to Miley Cyrus. Above is one of the Lebanese designer’s dresses from his 2010 couture show.

Mel B. tweeted that she’s excited to wear his clothes:

Can't wait to wear Zuhair Murad clothes this weekend!!

Maybe each Spice Girl is being dressed by a different designer.
