Ella Jayne Bailey rocks an updated version of the iconic Sporty Spice look in this exclusive C-Heads editorial photographed by Phil Engelhardt.

Although Sporty Spice was arguably one of the lesser- idolized acts within the British pop phenomenon The Spice Girls, her sporty-chic look has come to have universal appeal. Now that comfort and athleticism are coming back in a big way, it's not unusual to see garments that were once relegated for gym use only walk down the runway. In the case of this editorial, that means pieces such as the sports bra Bailey has on. In order to add a feminine touch, stylist Julia Campbell Gillies paired the fitness staple with a floor-length ruffled silk skirt in aquamarine.

Though the editorial doesn't necessarily scream "Sporty Spice Look," it's a subtle nod to a 90s style that was popularized by The Spice Girls' resident athlete Mel C.
