Geri's Union Jack Dress ~ Sioux City, Iowa @ Hard Rock Cafe & Casino

Postby PoshInMaine » 28 Feb 2017, 19:21

A few people had asked to see pics of the Union Jack Dress when I went to see it in Sioux City, Iowa at the Hard Rock Cafe & Casino. Let me know if you have any questions. Also, does anybody know where she wore those boots? I can't figure it out....

Those boots look like the ones from the Spiceword album shoot.

Haha, thank you!! :hug: :$
Glad you liked the pics! It was honestly a really special moment for me. I don't know why exactly, but this dress represents so much to me as a SG fan.

If I wasn't afraid to cross the border I'd take a road trip to see that, it would certainly be very special to see, it's kind like them wrapped up in a dress, that thing is so famous and iconic.

It's essentially a piece of fabric that symbolised and represented a whole decade. A whole generation. A whole new movement.

For me I see in that dress, my three year old self dancing around to my hearts content with their Brits performance on repeat!

I also see a lot of positivity and creative energy and Peace - literally with the CND logo on the back!

I hope that with it being exposed to strong lights in a casino (or wherever it is now) that it doesn't not lose it's colour or quality.

I would literally wet my pants if I was that close to the dress. Thank you again for sharing these photos. I am really grateful! X

You're welcome!
I completely agree with you. I remember when I first saw the Brits performance and I saw her in this dress and I can't explain why but I was just captivated. It began a very special journey for me as a lifelong fan of the Spice Girls. I'm American and she made me want to be British. I wanted to be part of their gang so much. The music, the energy... it really represents a massive positive part of my life.

Yeah the union jack itself always reminds me of my home and the place where I spent some very important years of my life and was of course living there when spicemania broke out!

Nice to know there are more of us out there... Captivated by this magnificent tea towel ;) x

Wicked photos, thanks! That iconic dress and those boots, I want to wear them!

But Iowa of all places.... At least Las Vegas. But it deserve to be somewhere nice, like New York. Best would be London. It belongs there.

Thanx for sharing I love how amateur if looks close up shows how it was a simple creation between Geri and her sister yet went on to become the image of nineties pop.

Geri has got the regret getting rid of the dress. There's no way I would have let that go.

How astonishing to see some a HQ photo of it! I can definitely tell she made the peace symbol lol.

I'm surprised they don't have it in the Vegas HRC.

I agree, it is such a bizarre place for it.

I was amazed at the homemade quality of it once I was up close. The black Gucci dress underneath was very lacey and you could see how amateur the stitching was when putting the Union Jack tea towel on it. I also could not believe how tiny the dress was. We all know Geri is a very small person but to see it in real life, it was such a small outfit. It's amazing she was as covered up as she was!

Wow! Great shots! You can really see the floral texture on the closeup shot of the peace sign. Who knew the dress had flowers on it?!

It's very interesting to see it up close. You can totaly see it was handmade, but on TV it didn't really show.

Thanks for posting

It's weird cause i always thought it was a body suit rather than a dress. :dizzy:
Well it's not a dress anyway, more like a long top.
