It goes without saying that the Super Bowl is a huge deal. The Super Bowl LVII was historic in terms of both football and music performances. The ground was filled with a huge crowd as Bad Gal Riri was expected to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. We could see a groundbreaking amount of football fans on the ground, as well as non-football fans. These non-football fans were proud Rihanna fans for sure. Be it football fans or non-football fans, Rihanna was sure to take the ground by storm with her performance. She knew the surprise she was bringing along with her performance was not predicted by anybody!
Rihanna Fenty, who is a Barbadian singer, has proven to the world many times that she is a queen. However, she has been on a break from live performances for around five years. Hence, this Super Bowl halftime performance was a much-awaited one for fans and admirers. She has been with rapper A$AP Rocky for a long time now. The rapper confirmed his relationship with Rihanna and also mentioned her as “the love of my life.” The duo got a lot of love when they announced their first pregnancy in January 2022! This pregnancy was announced by Rihanna when she decided to very fashionably show off her baby bump in an unforgettable pink outfit. In May 2022, she gave birth! Rihanna has gone on record and said that she loves fashion and dressing up, and she is not going to change that because she is pregnant. She said no to maternity wear and proudly made herself more stylish. We will not be wrong if we call her a fashion icon!
As the live performance was just 9 months after the birth of her son, nobody even guessed what was coming their way! The singer decided to flaunt her baby bump! That’s right! Rihanna announced her second pregnancy in such an iconic way that it blew everyone’s mind! The performance started when Rihanna came down from the air like an angel from above. Her outfit was enough to make fans believe she was pregnant, and it kept eyes pinned on her from the very start. She went on to sing songs like “Where have you been,” “Rude,” “We Found Love,” and “Umbrella.” Another key moment in her performance was when the stage eventually rose, with her performing with full enthusiasm and energy and the background dancing to match the rhythm. It left mouths hanging open. Another memorable moment was Rihanna’s mid-performance makeup touch-up. We have to admit that it was a good advertising strategy for her own makeup brand, Fenty.
An Outfit To Remember
Rihanna remained true to her passion for fashion during the performance. She pulled off a red outfit that kept the limelight on her from the beginning till the end. She completely relies on her stylist, Jahleel Weaver, and he undoubtedly does a great job, which people adore. She was seen wearing a bustier customized for her in leather. The fitting was the icing on the cake. This bustier was on a red high-neck top. Topping these two were red overalls, which gave a very cool streetwear look. This entire red outfit, with the inner two layers being body-hugging to highlight her pregnancy, was specially designed for her by designer Jonathan Anderson, who is also the creative director for Loewe. The designer, Jonathan, said he was very excited to be a part of this. He also specified that Riri’s outfit was inspired by flight gear. He then justified it by explaining how Rihanna descended on the stage in the initial seconds and was performing on a platform that was so far above ground level. Well, we would like to see Rihanna as a fighter and see how great this outfit suits her. During the end of her performance, she was seen wearing an oversized puffer jacket by Alaia’s Peter Muller. Apart from this, to add more glam, she had diamond brooches from the well-known jewelry brand Joseph Saidian and Sons. She had earrings from Messika Jewelry. Finally, to sum it all up, on her red gloves, she wore a watch with red sapphires from Jacob & Co. Northern Lights. I mean, JUST WOW!
Rihanna had a basic red lip thing going on with a braided hairstyle to jazz up her entire look, which made her unavoidable. We can say for sure that every eye on that ground was on her! She chose the best from every field for her gorgeous look, and we cannot stop staring. To quote Rihanna, “when you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you can take on the world and do anything.”
