David Beckham is set to design outfits for the Spice Girls' upcoming world tour.
The soccer star, who is married to Posh Spice Victoria, has been taking tips from top fashion designer Julien Macdonald for inspiration.
The rest of the band - Mel B, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Halliwell - are said to be behind the idea as they think it will be great fun to wear his designs.
A source said: "David has been helping out a lot ahead of the Spice Girls tour, which starts in December and has offered to give them fashion advice. "He has been looking at pictures of Julien Macdonald's collection on the internet and has also studied other designer collections.
"He is drawing different strengths from various fashion designers, but obviously Victoria will have the final say."
David who is renowned for his fashion sense has decided the outfits will all be black with different themes to match each of the girls' personality. David has also been helping Victoria practice her dance routines for the upcoming tour.
The band's show choreographer, Jamie King, has told the girls to ask their men to help them learn the moves.
A source said: "Victoria has got David dancing away to Spice Up Your Life and all their hits, he's loving being a Spice Boy!" The hotly-anticipated tour starts on December 7 in Los Angeles.
