My favorite Spice Girl

I always liked Posh best. I like her even better after seeing the video for Let Your Head Go. It’s utterly forgettable Brit dance pop, but the scene in which realizing that someone has tried on her favorite little black dress reduces her to a shaken, scarf-and-sunglass-wearing caricature of Greta Garbo made me laugh out loud. There’s also the fact that in this amoral age of celebritism, she and her husband are noteworthy by virtue of being an openly married couple with children.

In any case, it’s hard not to like a beautiful woman who isn’t afraid to laugh at herself.
