Madonna dazzled the Super Bowl fans with her Cleopatra-influenced outfit and gladiator-like support artists at the Super bowl halftime show at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Wearing Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci, Madonna performed a 12 minutes set including some of her greatest hits (“Vogue”, “Music”, “Express yourself”) and her brand new single (“Give me all your luvin’” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.) for the first time.
Madonna made her grand entry onto the stage with the hit song “Vogue,” wearing Egyptian head gear, gold ensemble cheerleader skirt and spiked black boots.
She moved on to perform “Give Me All Your Luvin,” her latest single with Nicki Minaj and she closed her 12-minute performance with “Like a Prayer”.
Earlier, Madonna revealed how much she was excited about the Super Bowl halftime performance and how hard she was preparing for it.
“Great attention to detail has been paid to my wardrobe. There will be no wardrobe malfunction – I promise,” she the reports ahead of the Super Bowl 2012.
“In over 25 years of performing that I’ve done, I have never worked so hard or been so scrupulous or detail-oriented or freaked out as much as I have,” she added.
Designed as part of the spectacle, all costumes were changed on stage, from an all over hand-embroidered gold cape that served as the performance’s opener, to the unveiling of a black mini dress worn with its hand-studded belt and an embellished black coat that completed the three costumes set: Madonna’s legendary music met Riccardo Tisci’s codes in what seemed to be the most perfect way.
Channeling Riccardo Tisci’s work for Givenchy in the past years, the designs for Madonna’s Superbowl performance incorporate signature references such as bold leopard print, three-dimensional embellishments, graphic placements and evocative cuts.
„People say everything has a limit, but limits do not exist with Madonna.
I am so happy that, after being busy in other scenes, she decided to go back on a music stage. Not only to bring us Music, but also to make such a statement of Performance and Fashion.“ Tisci said.
