    Maybe it's sheer '90s nostalgia, but the pictures you are about to see are like a cool glass of water after a long, hot day. We just can't stop drinking it in. Yes, it is only for tonight, and yes, it is to celebrate a global event and a teeny tiny bit of a publicity stunt, but we do not care. We do not, because for one night, we can pretend we are writing to you from Spice World, where girl power reigns supreme and pigtails are acceptable far past the age of 20. And it is so good.

    Forget getting older, forget how weird the "Spice Up Your Life" video is, and ignore the history of questionable fashion and that Eddie Murphy paternity suit along with as any ugly tabloid rumors. For just an instant, focus only on remembering how memorable these ladies are, how they defined a time and became archetypes (which Spice are you?) which we still reference today. For one night only, these five women got together and embraced their nicknames, channeled the roles that got them famous, and let us swim excitedly in a warm pool of nostalgia and reminiscence. Let us just say: Nothing pleases us more. Click through to check out the Girls...perhaps, for the last time.
