From sky high performances to Fenty touch ups, Rihanna gave out the most incredible moments at the Super Bowl LVII halftime show. And her style looks were amazing!
One of the biggest artists in music, Rihanna, was part of the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show as a headliner. This was Rihanna’s first live public performance in six years. The singer performed in Glendale, Arizona in the break of the game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs, providing a flawless performance where her iconic back catalogue took centre stage. We could remember and sing every one of her songs from the past.
Fashion was also part of her performance. However, if you expected many costume changes at Super Bowls, then, you might be disappointed for sure. Nonetheless, the Barbarian singer looked amazing, wowing at her halftime show in an all-red ensemble. Styled by Jahleel Weaver, the megastar glowed in a custom Loewe jumpsuit. At the beginning of the show, Rihanna began her show on platform shoes and sang “B**** Better Have My Money” in a cotton canvas flight suit 100 feet above the ground. The custom was unzipped to reveal a matching silk jersey catsuit and sculpted leather breastplate corset. She completed the look with comfy MM6 Salomon cross low sneakers in a complementary shade of red by Maison Margiela, a $72,000 Jacob & Co. watch, and integrated gloves.
She ended the performance in a red leather maxi puffer coat by Alaia coat to pay tribute to the late André Leon Talley, who sadly died in January 2022 and was a close friend to Rihanna. The oversized red puffer coat was designed to look like the trailblazer’s signature Norma Kamali sleeping bag coat, which he was often photographed wearing.
Loewe’s creative designer, Jonathan Anderson, said her look had been inspired by flight gear and was “designed to build volume in step with the dynamic scenography of the show.” “Rihanna is a true icon, and working with her to bring these stage looks to life feels like a wild, wonderful dream,” he also quoted.
After the show, Loewe shared that the pieces drew inspiration from “flight gear” and were designed in tandem to “build volume in step with the dynamic scenography of the show.” “Defying the norm of performers stripping back layers to reveal another, Rihanna approaches the reveal in reverse: starting with a simple catsuit layer, the dancers and choreography visibly construct the additional elements during each musical section,” the house revealed.
Of course, one of the most incredible moments was at the beginning of the show, as Rihanna revealed her growing baby bum during her epic Super Bowl LVII halftime performance. A rep for the singer confirmed she is expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky.
Another viral moment during the halftime show was Rihanna rocking the new Fenty Icon Velvet Liquid Lipstick ($29). She later touched up her makeup using the new Invisimatte Instant Setting + Botting Powder ($34) from her Fenty Beauty collection. During her live performance, the billionaire beauty mogul also wore a beautiful manicure done by celebrity nail artist Kimmie Kyees, using CND’s Devil Red ($15). She wore square-shaped nails, which perfectly complemented her monochromatic ensemble.
