Breaking Down The Outfits Of S Club 7’s Children In Need Performance
Bringing fashion all the way back to 1998…
In case you missed it, S Club 7 reunited for a Greatest Hits Medley on BBC Children In Need 2014 on Friday night, and it was quite the spectacle. Seemingly picking up right where they abandoned ship in 2003, not much had changed about Tina Barrett, Paul Cattermole, Jon Lee, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara, Hannah Spearritt and Rachel Stevens, least of all their fashion sense.
Let’s just break this S Club Party down right now…
Winning S Club 7 2.0 in all black everything, Rachel opted for a chic sequined bustier and wide-legged trousers for Friday evening’s momentous performance, looking impeccably turned out as usual. You would have thought the other girls might have considered trying to give her a run for her money this time around… but no. Did we mention how shiny her hair looked? A Pantene ad is calling.
Hannah, who was always our second favourite in S Club 7 after Rachel, continued to be our second favourite in S Club 7 after Rachel. Obviously deciding to try something new – perhaps due to the pressure of performing alongside one-time boyfriend Paul Cattermole again – Hannah decided a bit of pattern clashing was the way to go. Just check out that sheer leopard body peeking out from under her pink and purple kaleidoscope print top! Don’t even get us started on the skinny belt and faux ponytail…
Where do we start with this one? Working not one, but three new season trends, Tina’s obviously been reading about sheer pieces, sequins and over-the-knee boots. Good girl – but you really didn’t have to wear them all at once. Plus, said sheer panelling on that top doesn’t detract from the fact Tina is showing boobs, legs AND abs, and might as well be naked really. Next!
Did Jo have a guest spot manning Donna’s market stall in EastEnders that we didn’t know about? The faux-leather boiler suit and gold chain belt we could just about forgive, if it wasn’t for the OTT red push-up bra, complete with mirrored embellishment. No words.

There’s not much to say about the men of S Club 7, who – with the exception of Bradley’s lairy T-shirt – wore black and kept things even more low-key than that time they were arrested for smoking marijuana in the street.
With a 2015 arena tour on the way, here’s hoping the band enlist Tina Knowles to design their stage outfits, so they can look every bit as fabulous and matchy-matchy as nature intended.
