Ex-Spice Girl Cleans Her Closet
Aug. 28, 1998
LONDON (AP) _ Ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell is clearing out her wardrobe, including her Union Jack minidress, to benefit charity.
Along with the clothes, Halliwell will offer her 1967 MGB roadster, bought with her first royalty check, in the sale at Sotheby's on Sept. 16.
The Union Jack dress, which she promised to deliver personally to the buyer, had an estimated price tag of $13,000.
A beaded white evening gown and coat worn when Halliwell was presented to Queen Elizabeth II at the 1997 Royal Command Performance is expected to fetch at least $1,600.
Halliwell, who had a benign lump removed from her breast at 18, wants all the proceeds to go to the Sargent Cancer Care for Children charity.
