The New York Giants may have won the Super Bowl last night, but count the half-time show as a touchdown for Givenchy. Madonna wore Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Haute Couture throughout her 12-minute set, while her dancers wore Jeremy Scott for Adidas. The Roman-inspired outfits included a hand-embroidered gold cape with gold metal, studs and crystals for the opening song “Vogue.” Madonna then took off the gold cape to reveal a black charmeuse mini-dress with a hand-studded python belt and a gold metal hat, which was hand-embroidered with crystals. For the closing song, “Like A Prayer,” Madonna wore a long black cloak with hand-embroidered sequins and pearls.
The Material Girl’s outfits were beautiful and extravagant, but she didn’t let them get in the way of her dance moves, even doing cartwheels in her stiletto over-the knee boots. She did slip once, but quickly recovered. It was a rare misstep in a power performance by the reigning Queen of Pop.–Erin Fitzsimmons
