Fact: Rihanna will never hesitate to pull off a head-turning look. She always brings her sartorial A-game to every occasion, be it a date night at the movie theater with her beau or the Met Gala red carpet. Therefore, it’s safe to say that Rihanna’s outfits at the 2023 Super Bowl did not disappoint either. The singer performed during halftime on Sunday, Feb. 12 (and cooly announced her second pregnancy) wearing a red catsuit from Loewe with a leather puffer scarf with integrated gloves from Alaïa. The singer kept her accessories minimal, rocking only a red strap watch from Jacob & Co and a medley of diamond earrings. She opened the show with “B*tch Better Have My Money,” and needless to say the crowd went wild.

Plenty of celebrities were there to cheer her on as she took to the field, errr stage, including Cara Delevingne and Kerry Washington who both wore T-shirts that said: “Rihanna Concert Interrupted By A Football Game, Weird But Whatever.” (Where can we buy one of those??) Meanwhile, Rihanna’s Umbrella partner-in-crime Jay-Z took in the show from the sidelines with his daughter Blue Ivy. For those who were wondering if she’d perform the aforementioned song with him or other guest stars, it seemed like everyone decided to hang back while Rihanna owned the spotlight solo. Well almost, as the singer’s baby bump shined in the limelight too.

If you didn’t catch her performance, you can watch it again on YouTube shortly, or through various clips uploaded by her fans online like this one. In the meantime, get a closer look at all her outfits, from start to finish, from every angle ahead.

Halftime Show Teaser Look

On Jan. 13, Rihanna appeared in an official trailer for the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show. In the video, the singer wore a black halter-neck catsuit from Saint Laurent and layered a fuzzy slime green coat on top. (The statement outerwear came from AREA’s Fall/Winter 2022 runway collection.) She wore black pointy-toe pumps with multiple ankle straps and a curved stiletto heel from Versace’s Resort 2023 range. She finished the look with a medley of impossible-to-miss jewels, including a hefty necklace with multiple crosses attached to it and several pairs of ginormous hoop earrings.

The singer, who likely worked with her longtime stylist Jahleel Weaver on her Super Bowl look, stunned in a flaming red outfit. Since she opted not to change out of her ensemble for the night, she made sure her look from head to toe was comfortable enough to move and dance in. This meant she stuck to wearing a pair of bright red MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross Low Sneakers, which matched her outfit of course, and topped off her whole ensemble with an oversized custom Alaïa coat designed by Pieter Mulier.
