MILAN, Italy — The Spice Girls pepped up the Milan fashion scene today when they turned up at Roberto Cavalli’s menswear show to thank him for designing their tour wardrobe.
The tour, which began in December, brings all the Spice Girls together for the first time in nearly 10 years.
Their glam Cavalli-designed tour outfits are in bright Swarovski-beaded silk and remain true to the playful styles the Spice Girls favored the first time around: miniskirts, cropped tops and body-clinging jumpsuits.
Talking like a gaggle of schoolgirls, they sang the praises of Italian men as ‘‘very passionate’’ and ‘‘more stylish’’ than their British counterparts.
‘‘Italians are stallions,’’ said 32-year-old Melanie ‘‘Scary Spice’’ Brown, summing it up, and quickly adding, ‘‘or so I’ve heard.’’
