Now this is the definition of future nostalgia.
If Dua Lipa is a Spice Girls wannabe, she must be levitating over this news. Geri Halliwell, best known as Ginger Spice, sent Dua a special shoutout on Instagram this week after the “New Rules” star paid homage to her legendary 1997 Union Jack outfit.
Of course, Geri famously wore a bodycon minidress with the same flag print to the BRIT Awards nearly 25 years ago. On Wednesday, the 48-year-old singer shared a throwback of her nostalgic ensemble with an inspiring message about owning your sense of style, no matter how out there it may be.
“Trust yourself,” she wrote. “This dress is a reminder to follow your instincts and be yourself. 24 years ago I had an idea-to wear a Union Jack to celebrate The Brit Awards. Despite the doubts, I trusted my instincts and wore it anyway.”
