Happy Birthday, Victoria Beckham: The Spice Girls, Then and Now

Apr 17, 2014

We don't know what Victoria Beckham really really wants for her 40th birthday, but because you can never have too much of a good thing, take a minute now to catch up on what the girl power pioneers have been up to since they zig-a-zig-ah'd their way to global stardom. After stomping onto the scene with towering platform shoes in the late 1990s, the women behind the best-selling female pop group of all time have gone to become mothers, writers, designers, television personalities and solo pop stars in their own right. Girl power, indeed.
