In honor of Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7, 2021, Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the best fashion moments from halftime shows over the years, starting with this unforgettable ensemble… It was custom Givenchy for Madonna during the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show. The Queen of Pop went full warrior goddess in a black LBD with a gold leopard-print cape, a strappy leather belt, fingerless opera gloves and over-the-knee boots. She topped off her look with a Philip Treacy headpiece that deserves a closer look…
During the 2000 Super Bowl halftime show, Toni Braxton was a vision in white in a gorgeous gown featuring bejeweled straps and a cape detail that trailed elegantly behind her.
The Super Bowl halftime show's best menswear moment? That distinction goes to Lenny Kravitz, who went rocker-chic in 2015. He wore a black leather jacket with fringe over a sheer gold mesh tank top and extremely distressed denim. The "Fly Away" chart-topper completed his look with camel-colored boots, aviator shades and layered chain necklaces.
Diana Ross started the 1996 Super Bowl halftime show in this adorable sleeveless sequined minidress, which she wore with matching red pumps. But it wasn't her only look of the evening…
Diana Ross also donned this gorgeous strapless orange-and-fuchsia gown with a ruffled skirt during the 1996 Super Bowl halftime show.
Diana Ross closed out the 1996 Super Bowl halftime show in a strapless fuchsia jumpsuit with a sequin-encrusted bodice. At one point, she also sported a shiny gold jacket that was so long, it covered a significant portion of the stage.
Katy Perry donned four Jeremy Scott-created looks during the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show — and each deserves a closer look! She opened the show in flame-emblazoned separates: a miniskirt and a three-quarter-sleeve top.
Next, Katy Perry rocked beach ball-inspired separates: a pleated miniskirt and a matching halter top.
After that — while performing alongside Missy Elliott — Katy Perry briefly donned a crystal-adorned oversized zip-up hoodie featuring the number 49 in honor of Super Bowl XLIX. (We just had one question: Where can we get one?!)
Katy Perry closed out the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show in a one-shoulder Moschino gown featuring holographic star details and a star-shaped midriff cutout.
ICONIC. Michael Jackson famously sported this black military-inspired jacket with gold straps and a gold bullet belt during the Super Bowl halftime show in 1993.
Flawless! Beyonce rocked leather and lace in the form of a black bodysuit with a plunging neckline during the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show. She completed her look with black high-heeled ankle boots and knee socks.
It was a much different black-bodysuit moment for Beyonce during the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show. Her military-inspired ensemble harkened back to Michael Jackson's look during the 1993 Super Bowl halftime show.
While headlining the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show, Justin Timberlake wore a fantastic black leather jacket with fringe over a camouflage suit and a button-down shirt featuring a colorful graphic print of two deer. He completed his look — which was heavily inspired by his "Man of the Woods" album (it dropped just two days earlier) — with a red bandana and white Air Jordans. Let's take a closer look at that shirt…
Gloria Estefan rocked the most quintessentially early '90s ensemble ever during the 1992 Super Bowl halftime show: a strapless leather minidress with a pearl-encrusted bodice and a feathered skirt, which she wore with strings of pearls, black leather opera gloves, fishnet tights and stiletto boots.
Jennifer Lopez donned several Versace creations during the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show. She started off in a biker-friendly ensemble: studded black leather separates with midriff and thigh cut-outs plus silver fingerless gloves, naturally!
Next, Jennifer Lopez channeled a disco ball in a sheer Versace bodysuit.
At one point, Jennifer Lopez added another Versace-created layer to her ensemble: a sheer bodysuit covered in fringe. She also briefly donned a sleeveless feathered coat resembling the flag of Puerto Rico. Get a closer look at that next…
Here's a better look at the Puerto Rico flag feathered coat Jennifer Lopez wore during the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show while performing with her adorable daughter, Emme Muñiz. J.Lo's mini-me looked too cute in an all-white ensemble — a Versace hoodie and a tulle skirt with combat boots and a gold Versace belt with chains — while joining her superstar mom on stage.
Back in 1972, Carol Channing donned a fabulous winter-white coat with fur trim while performing during the Super Bowl halftime show. It was a truly timeless look — which the singer-actress recreated in a 2014 Pepsi ad. (Watch it here.)
Lady Gaga opened the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show in a sequin-covered long-sleeved Versace bodysuit and matching knee-high boots. She slightly changed up her look throughout her performance. Let's take a closer look…
Years before Lady Gaga pulled the same style stunt, Fergie channeled a football player with her ensemble during the 2011 Super Bowl halftime show. The Black Eyes Peas frontwoman donned a black leather mini with a cheerleader-inspired pleated skirt, sequined shoulder pads and a lace-up belt. She completed her look with lace-up open-toe boots.
Prince played with color — and won! — during the 2007 Super Bowl halftime show. The Purple One sported an orange button-down under an electric-blue suit while rocking out with one of his signature violet guitars.
Shakira opened the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show in a red embellished Peter Dundas minidress, which she wore with matching boots and cuff bracelets. It was actually two looks in one! Keep reading to see what we mean…
Shakira removed a layer of fabric from her Peter Dundas creation to reveal matching separates covered in beaded fringe. Perfect for proving that her hips don't lie!
Shakira closed out the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show in a second Peter Dundas ensemble: a gold sequined bralette and matching high-waist fringed briefs, which she wore with a coordinating three-quarter-sleeve cropped bomber.
So sharp! Bruno Mars kept things simple with his retro-inspired ensemble during the 2014 Super Bowl halftime show. He rocked a gold jacket over a white button-down with a skinny tie and black slacks.
Bruno Mars channeled a different decade (the '80s!) in another retro-inspired ensemble during the 2016 Super Bowl halftime show. This time, he sported loose-fitting leather separates with gold chains, round shades and sneakers.
It was another quintessentially '90s fashion moment during the 1998 Super Bowl halftime show when Queen Latifah wore matching paisley-print separates: a duster with bejeweled buttons and matching pants.
Country music star Tanya Tucker brought a rock 'n' roll edge to her ensemble during the 1994 Super Bowl halftime show, sporting a studded black leather jacket over a sleeveless corset-inspired shirt, studded pants and cowboy boots.
Gwen Stefani's signature skater-chick aesthetic from early in her career was on full display during the 2003 Super Bowl halftime show. She rocked a sequined crop top with loose-fitting pants tucked into Adidas sneaker-boots and completed her ensemble with a studded belt (so 2003!) with an oversized buckle featuring her band No Doubt's initials, plus chains hanging off her belt loops and leather fingerless gloves.
Usher wore a fun all-white look while performing during the 2011 Super Bowl halftime show. We especially love the studs on the shoulders and collar of his jacket!
Shania Twain donned this delightfully over-the-top ensemble during the Super Bowl halftime show in 2003: a shiny black open-front dress over a rhinestone-encrusted bralette and a black miniskirt adorned with bejeweled white straps. She completed her look with a statement choker and over-the-knee boots.
BONUS: While we wouldn't call it one of the Super Bowl's finest fashion moments, it's certainly among the most memorable. In 2019, Adam Levine made headlines when he wore this tank top featuring a geometric print while performing with Maroon 5 during the halftime show. People watching from home couldn't stop comparing it to their pillows and curtains. (See what we mean here.)
