Forget bands like One Direction. When it came to British pop back in the day, it was all about GIRL POWER! In the 90s where boy bands dominated the music scene, a certain girl group took everyone by storm when they Spice Girls released their debut single "Wannabe," changing the world of girl groups forever. Better known for their nicknames: Scary Spice, Sporty Spice, Baby Spice, Ginger Spice and Posh Spice, the girls became instant pop culture icons. People across the world went crazy for their fashion and lyrics, but one common argument among all friend groups was which Spice Girl is the best?
With each girl representing a different persona, your favorite Spice Girl said a lot about who you were as a person. I personally was a huge Baby Spice fan growing up. I mean, not only was her hair the absolute cutest, but she was constantly seen eating candy and wearing pink. And don't even get me started on those platform sneakers! But of course, now that I'm getting older, my style has changed and so has my favorite Spice Girl. Now I know the truth: Posh Spice is where it's at.
While Emma Bunton and her long pigtails will always hold a special place in my heart, I realize that Posh Spice is actually the best Spice Girl and here's why.
She Pulled Off The Lob Before It Was Cool
Seriously, she wasn't even a mom yet, and she was already rocking this infamous 'do, putting us all to shame.
