Geri Halliwell and the Union Jack Dress

She later revealed that she considered the black Gucci dress that she was given to perform in "too boring", so she asked her sister Karen to sew a Union Jack tea towel onto the front.

One year later, the dress was auctioned for charity as part of a sale of Spice Girls memorabilia. It was bought for £36,000 (plus commission) by Peter Morton, co–founder of the Hard Rock Café restaurant chain, to be displayed at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
