Singer Madonna was mesmerising in three haute couture outfits by luxury French fashion house Givenchy as she performed at the Superbowl.
Giving the fishnet and leotard look a night off, the singer looked to Italian designer Riccardo Tisci, creative director for French fashion house Givenchy, to hit the right style notes with her first ever performance at the Superbowl, America’s most-watched television broadcast of the year.Three different costumes were painstakingly crafted by Tisci and Givenchy’s team of couturiers for the big event, with all the looks changed into on stage.
There was no missing the 53-year-old in the dazzling, floor-length gold cape, hand-embroidered with gold metal cut outs, studs, crystals and paillettes, in which she opened the show. Underneath she revealed a black, silk minidress worn with a short, leopard-print cape, also hand-embroidered with gold studs and crystals, teamed with a black python hand-studded and embroidered belt with removable matching flaps.The trio of bespoke ensembles also included a black silk coat, hand-embroidered with shiny black rectangular sequins and micro pearls. An ornate, metal hat in gold embellished with crystals completed her look.
Tisci, who collaborated on costumes for Madonna’s tour three years ago, said it was a “great honour” to be outfitting her for the Superbowl.”People say everything has a limit, but limits do not exist with Madonna,” said Tisci.Alluding to her directorial debut with her recently released biopic W.E, about King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson’s love affair, Tisci added: “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.” – Thetelegraph
