90s fashion is making a significant comeback on the catwalk this season along with warm weather leather and corsetry style outerwear. The First Ladies of reality television, who certainly know their fashion, are leading the way when it comes to channelling these runway styles. This summer, Kim Kardashian West posted a rare group photo of herself and her famous siblings rocking a look she labelled ‘Spice Girls.’ We’re diving a little deeper into the clothes the ladies wore in the photo to see just how close they came to getting it right.

Spice Girls Viva Forever
In the middle of July, on Instagram, Kim Kardashian posted the first group photo of her and her sisters since the global pandemic began. With Kim sporting bright red hair and Kylie with baby pink locks, it was easy to see who the girls were channelling in terms of fashion and beauty. Kim captioned the post ‘Spice Girls’, and it was a cute way to show off their unique styles.
Kourtney Kardashian as Posh
In their Spice Girls photo, it was Kourtney Kardashian who stood in place of Posh Spice. Wearing a modern take on Victoria Beckham’s classic ’90s LBD, Kourtney updated this popular style with a contemporary high collar and belted mini dress. She paired the look with transparent Yeezy pumps designed by her brother-in-law Kanye West. Loving the shoes, in August she seen out at Madeo Restaurant in West Hollywood wearing a similar pair of neon yellow Yeezys.
Kim Kardashian West as Ginger Spice
Geri Halliwell wore striped red hair and her iconic Union Jack dress to the 1997 Brit Awards and wore a similar bodysuit embellished with the stars and stripes of the American flag to the MTV VMAs. In Kim’s photo, she rocks newly-dyed bright red hair to match Ginger’s and a two-piece outfit that’s just as statement-making. Whilst Ginger left very little to the imagination, Kim opted to cover up, channelling the red but also paying homage to the paisley of the ’70s.
Khloe Kardashian as Scary Spice
Khloe stands in for Mel B, Scary Spice. Although Scary was synonymous with animal print, leather and a genuinely wild style, Khloe went for a more ethereal look in a barely-there, semi-sheer mini dress. The brand she chose to wear is Yousef Al Jasmi, and the dress is a one-off piece that made for her birthday. Kuwait-born designer Yousef Al Jasmi is renowned for his use of Swarovski crystals and Khloe is a big fan, having been papped throughout the years in his glamorous creations. As well as Khloe Kardashian, Al Jasmi’s client list includes Beyonce, Cardi B, Kylie Jenner and Céline Dion.

Kylie Jenner as Baby Spice
As the youngest member of the Kardashian family, it makes sense that Kylie Jenner was the parallel of Baby Spice. Although Emma Bunton’s ’90s look was a lot sweeter than Kylie’s raunchy style, there are certainly elements of cute in this new Spice Girls look. Kylie’s pink hair keeps things candy-coated, but she certainly spices it up with her form-fitting black latex pants. Of note the cult floral Dior Saddle bag slung over her left arm. The Kardashians are big fans of John Galliano’s iconic bag which gained pop-culture status in the ’00s. Back then it was worn by celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker and Sienna Miller and today, alongside Kylie, is worn by Bella Hadid, Beyonce and Kendall Jenner.
Kendall Jenner as Sporty Spice
The lithest of the group and the only one who models full time, Kendall Jenner stands in place of Sporty Spice in Kim’s Instagram post. Her trainer is Gunnar Peterson, and she loves doing ab work, so Sporty Mel C is the perfect Spice Girl for her to channel. Keeping her look active with sneakers, she also wore a sporty orange tie-dye two-piece pant set that shows off her collar bone.
The Spice Girls Write Back
Loving this latest reveal from the KarJenner sisters, the Spice Girls responded! Geri Halliwell, Victoria Beckham and Emma Bunton all reposted the photo to their Instagram Stories curious to find out which one each of the girls thought they. The Spice Girls were an indelible part of ’90s pop culture in terms of fashion, beauty, music and attitude. They united women all over the world with their positive influence and quest for ‘Girl Power’. As millionaires in their own right and all holding down jobs that they love, it seems that the Kardashian and Jenner ladies are now also following suit.
