Donatella Versace to design Spice Girls' tour outfits

The Spice Girls have asked Donatella Versace to design their outfits for their comeback tour.

The Italian designer has already started working on her exclusive creations for the band - Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Halliwell - who kick off their world tour in December.

A source told Britain's Daily Mirror: "Donatella was a big fan of the girls back in the day and as soon as she heard that a reunion was on the cards she submitted her ideas.

"There will be several different looks for each of them and the clothes will be worth over 200,000 pounds ($526,999)."

Donatella - the sister of the late fashion guru Gianni Versace who was murdered in 1997 - is determined each singer will have an individual look, but won't be rigorously sticking to their previous personas, Sporty (Mel C), Baby (Emma), Ginger (Geri), Scary (Mel B) and Posh (Victoria).

The source added: "She wants the girls to retain their band personas but in a much less obvious way than before. Mel C won't be wearing ill-fitting sportswear instead she'll have a really sexy wardrobe. Emma will wear stunning, elegant dresses with a playful touch.

"Donatella thinks they look better than many bands half their age and should show that off."

The band recently announced extras dates for their world tour, after 3 million people registered for tickets on the girls' official website.

The group will now perform in Vancouver, San Jose and Shanghai.

Other cities on the tour include London, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Cologne, Madrid, Hong Kong, Sydney, Cape Town and Buenos Aires.
