Posh and co Spice up fashion pal Roberto Cavalli's Milan show

15 JANUARY 2008
Though they're right in the middle of the London leg of their sell-out world tour the Spice Girls managed to squeeze in a very special appointment this week. Posh, Sporty, Scary, Baby, and Ginger jetted to Milan to attend the menswear presentation of Roberto Cavalli, the Italian fashion maestro who designed the glittering stage costumes for their shows.

Dressed in red carpet-worthy outfits, the girls were full of praise for their style-icon pal as they joined him on stage. "His clothes make you feel sexy," said Geri Halliwell, whose ivory satin dress stood out against the midnight black ensembles chosen by her bandmates.

The five-piece also voiced their appreciation of Italian men, pegging them as "very passionate" and "more stylish" than their British counterparts. "Italians are stallions," quipped Leeds-born Mel B, quickly adding: "Or so I've heard!".
