Victoria Beckham wows at Olympics closing ceremony

Victoria Beckham stayed true to her "Posh" image in a stunning black gown as she performed at the Olympic closing ceremony with the Spice Girls.

The singer-turned-fashion-designer - who is famed for her Posh Spice moniker - chose a sexy yet sophisticated strapless frock by Giles Deacon for what is believed to be the final performance of the five-piece.

The beaded mullet style creation featured cut out panels that gave the illusion of strips of fabric being layered across a sheer bodice and fitted the mother-of-four like a glove.

Victoria teamed the dress with fierce black patent heels, smoky eye-make-up and flowing locks.

Her fellow band members looked equally dazzling in costumes that reflected their famous nicknames from their Spice Girls heyday.

Mel B showed off her curves in a sheer, gold-embellished Zuhair Murad bodysuit that matched her bold personality perfectly, while Emma Bunton reflected her girly 'Baby Spice' image in a hot pink mini dress with sparkling futuristic shoulder detailing.

Sporty Mel C teamed her white and silver jumpsuit with matching wedge heel trainers and Geri Halliwell paid homage to her famous Union Jack dress in a flirty red number with ruffles made from the British flag adorning the back.

Meanwhile, British singer Jessie J also stayed true to her sassy image in a selection of three bodysuits.

The nude designs, which have become somewhat of a trademark look for the musician, were embellished with strategically placed patterns to save her modesty.

One featured black jewel-style detailing, while another wrapped her body in a dazzling diagonal silver pattern.

Male performers Take That and Muse also looked stylish in military inspired jacket and suit trousers and shimmering black sequin suits respectively.
