Spice Girls on The Face, 1997


As promised, another great Spice Girls cover from 1997. Compare this to the Guardian Weekend one – two incredibly different approaches, but both great executions. One is grimy and faceless, the other is glossy and smiley, but they both play on the same instant iconic nature of the subject matter. In summary: the Spice Girls were an art director's dream.
