It’s a bird, it’s an airplane, it’s Rihanna floating in the air! The superstar kicked off her Super Bowl LVII halftime performance tonight in Arizona, singing “Bitch Better Have My Money” by suspending herself (and her backup dancers) in the air on a floating platform. It was the dramatic start of her first live performance in five years. Bad Gal Riri certainly didn’t disappoint with her vocals and style tonight. As she debuted and stroked her belly, she broke the internet to announce to the world that she is now expecting her second child with A$AP Rocky, who cheered her on from the sidelines. (The couple welcomed a baby boy last March.)
Styling by Jahleel Weaver — responsible for many of the star’s memorable red carpet looks — —Rihanna’s red Super Bowl outfit included a Loewe jumpsuit with a molded bodice and a long puff coat in bold red leather by Alaïa, custom-made for her by Pieter Mulier. Fashion fans online are debating how similar the statement coat is to the one worn by the late fashion editor and style icon André Leon Talley, but it’s unclear if it’s a direct reference to him pay tribute.
