Her halftime show scored mixed reviews (full disclosure: we loved it!) but Madonna‘s Super Bowl Sunday style was a total touchdown. The Material Girl performed a series of hits in an elaborate black-and-gold wardrobe made by Givenchy’s Ricardo Tisci (accented with megawatt earrings by Bulgari) and seamlessly transitioned between looks.

Madonna started her performance in a gold cape hand-embroidered with gold metal cut-out pieces, studs, crystals, sequins and paillettes, lined in a leopard-print chiffon. She paired that with a gold, crystal-covered hat. She then changed — on stage! — into a black mini-dress (top left) with a black python hand-studded and hand-embroidered belt with removable matching flaps. (The guys of LMFAO — who wore Beats by Dr. Dre headphones studded with 114 carats of Graff diamonds — peeled that off of her after their cameo.)

For the “Like a Prayer” finale — which featured Cee Lo Green — the singer covered up in a silk cady black coat hand-embroidered with black sequins and micro pearls (top right). Throughout the performance, she also wore hand-embroidered nappa leather gloves and killer black boots.

According to a release, “Madonna’s legendary music met Ricardo Tisci’s codes in what seemed to be the most perfect way.” And the designer himself was pleased with the results. “Following my collaboration with Madonna on her last tour three years ago, it is a great honor for me to be part of yet another historical and iconic moment.”

He continues, “People say everything has a limit, but limits do not exist with Madonna. I am so happy that, after being busy in other scenes, she decided to go back on a music stage. Not only to bring us music, but also to make such a statement of performance and fashion.” Tell us: What did you think of Madonna’s Super Bowl style? And did you enjoy her performance?

I thought Joan Rivers did a great job on her halftime show.

Lee on

The performance was fantastic on all counts but one. M.I.A. showed very bad taste with her finger flipping. All it did was look bad for her. So much for her in my book. Madonna looked terrific!

Linda Schulman on

Fab-u-lous! Perfect way to come back into the spot light! Loved every minute of it!

Sarafina on

La Bella Madonna!!

I think the halftime show was hyped up so much beforehand that it was almost disappointing. Ultimately, I think it was fine, but nothing “out of this world.” The outfits were great, but sounds like so much work, detail and craftsmanship went into them for a 15-min show.
