This morning I was still up at 1am watching the Superbowl on BBC1 for the first time in my life.
It wasn’t to see the Giants triumph over the Patriots; it was to take in Madonna’s half-time performance – and to see what she was wearing, of course.
She didn’t disappoint in either department.
Madge arrived on the field flanked by burly men in gladiator customs and dancers in Jeremy Scott for Adidas tracksuits as she gave an epic performance of ‘Vogue’.
Her entire couture wardrobe was designed by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Haute Couture.
She kick-started the fashion parade wearing a dramatic cape embroidered with gold metal cut-out pieces, studs, crystals, sequins and paillettes and lined in leopard-print chiffon.
Once the cape dropped, she continued the Egyptian theme by revealing a black mini dress worn with a studded belt, a short cape and custom Miu Miu thigh-thigh black-and-gold boots.
Throughout the performance of ‘Music’, ‘Express Yourself’ and her brand new single ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’, which she performed with Nicki Minji and M.I.A, the cape, Philip Treacy headpiece and belt were removed.
An embellished black coat with shiny black rectangular sequins and micro pearls completed a trio of looks for her spine-tingling performance of ‘Like A Prayer’ with Cee-Lo Green.
Givenchy fingerless leather opera gloves and Bulgari earrings were worn throughout her performance.
Twitter was abuzz last night as everyone was saying that Madonna looked a lot like Italian Vogue Editor-In-Chief Franca Sozzani.
The resemblance is uncanny.
