Just followed her on Instagram, she has completely transformed.. Stunning country home, extremely posh accent... She's turned into a stepford wife... She looks incredible!

When she decided that wearing all white all the time and putting on a fake accent makes her appear that way

Isn’t it more likely that “Ginger Spice” was a character, and this is who Geri Halliwell really is? 🤷‍♀️

Considering her pre-Spice days were working as a topless model on a TV game show, I’d say no.

When she married her husband, she transformed herself into Posh(er) Spice !

No. Geri was never posh

I hadnt seen her in the press in years, I saw an article online & said I'd glance on her insta... I always pictured her as the union Jack wearing, Prince Charles bum pinching spice girl... Unbelievable transformation!

Baffles me that all she wears is white. Literally, just white. Even when she's out apparently tending to her many animals. Admittedly I have a lot of time on my hands at the moment.

Just taken a look. I think she looks like she is playing a role of what she thinks a posh wife looks like. I also think she looks in her early 50s albeit with a younger figure. Commend her though I'm not succumbing to lots of facial work.

Yes this
She was annoying me so much I had to unfollow
When she left the spice girls 20 years ago I adored her
Now
Meh

People change. I'm not the same person I was 20 years ago either.

She’s married to that minted formula 1 guy, isn’t she?

She certainly landed on her feet.

ABitOfAShitShow Wed 20-Oct-21 10:02:25

I think she always sounded posh but it was actually just a neutral accent from wherever she hails.

She definitely looks posher since she married Christian Horner. I suppose she couldn't go to a black tie F1 dinner in that union jack dress...

LetHimHaveIt Wed 20-Oct-21 10:04:07

About the same time Billie Piper did.

In fairness, Geri has always been very well-spoken.

Goawaymorningsickeness Wed 20-Oct-21 10:04:43

I remember seeing her at the London transport museum with her daughter who was about five at the time. The little girl ran ahead of her and Geri absolutely screamed and shouted at her that a nasty man would come and take her away. She sounded deranged.

Not sure what all the wearing of white is.

There's very little difference in their individual net worth.

Why was Posh Spice called 'Posh'? Was it an in joke or something? Because she has always sounded very un-posh to me in a completely normal way. Was it supposed to indicate 'Elegant' or 'Aloof' or 'Shy' or something?

BrilloPaddy Wed 20-Oct-21 10:08:09

She's a chameleon, I've got a friend just like her. Changes her entire look and personality according to who she's in a relationship with.

And posting a birthday message to her step daughter from her and Christian??? He's her Dad ffs. She's a piece of work and I feel very sorry for Christian's ex partner having to cope with them both.

HailAdrian Wed 20-Oct-21 10:08:41

This thread is already attracting shitty comments. Maybe she's just grown up?

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 20-Oct-21 10:09:31

Tbh if I could have loads of animals in country estate and spend my weekends going to F1 races with Red Bull I totally would.

lescompagnonsdeloue Wed 20-Oct-21 10:10:42

I don't think she looks posh, I think she looks wealthy.
She's never been really well spoken. She's always come across as insecure, I think she acts a role.

QueeniesCroft Wed 20-Oct-21 10:11:41

Why wouldn't she post a birthday message to a stepchild? Did the kid's actual father bother?

Classica Wed 20-Oct-21 10:12:18

Maybe it's like when Madonna assumed her lady of the manor persona when she was married to Guy Ritchie.

If you can wear all white whilst living in the country it's a real 'Yes. I'm fabulously wealthy, dahlings!'.

I wonder if her in-laws have come round to her presence. I remember reading that they refused to attend the wedding as they were appalled at how badly Mr Geri treated his first wife once Geri came on the scene.
