The 2023 Super Bowl was a star-studded event - but nobody shined brighter than Queen Rihanna. She graced us with her edgy maternity style, fit for the occasion! Let's take a closer look, shall we?
Bad Gal RiRi soared to new heights (literally) with her fashion statement during her daring Super Bowl LVII halftime performance. She opened the show by suspending herself midair on a platform, singing B**** Better Have My Money, together with her backup dancers. This awesome start marked Rihanna's first live performance in five years – and she did not disappoint! To everyone's surprise, the superstar rubbed her baby bump during part of the set list, revealing that she expecting another baby with A$AP Rocky - who was obviously proud at seeing his lady from side stage.
Rihanna's fierce look at the event was designed by style maven Jahleel Weaver. The musician wore a Loewe jumpsuit complete with molded breast bustier, and an Alaia bold red leather maxi puffy coat custom crafted for her by Pieter Mulier--a designer renowned in his own right who is known as one of fashion's greatest innovators today. In discussing their collaboration, he stated that Rihanna "embodies the modern woman," highlighting how she continually redefines what true beauty looks like both on and off the runway. This statement outerwear has sparked conversations online about its striking similarity to pieces formerly worn by late fashion editor André Leon Talley's wardrobe - sparking speculations if it was done purposely or not!
"I'm so excited to have been part of this unforgettable moment," Jonathan Anderson, Loewe's creative director, said in a statement. "Rihanna is a true icon, and working with her to bring these stage looks to life feels like a wild, wonderful dream." The singer hit us with a strong finale as she performed her smash hit Diamonds while wearing an elegant red Alaïa coat, gloves and MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon sneakers. The vibrant ensemble was reportedly inspired by the late fashion icon Norma Kamali's signature scarlet sleeping bag coat - talk about making a statement! With RiRi's spellbinding vocals combined with her captivating looks, we can confidently say her Super Bowl performance will remain iconic for years to come.
