Superbowl: Madonna In Givenchy Haute Couture

Madonna really knows how to make an entrance, I absolutely loved her halftime show at the Super Bowl XLVI match between the New York Giants and The Patriots last night. From the word go with her coming on flanked by dancers dressed as gladiators, to the fab performance of ‘Vogue’ – and her amazing wardrobe created exclusively for her by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci – this was a spectacular 12 minute set.

As well as ‘Vogue’, Madonna also delved into her massive archive and sang some of her other hits including ‘Music’ and ‘Like a Prayer’, as well as her new song ‘Give Me All Your Lurvin’, which I have to say isn’t growing on me – yet.

Some people on Twitter were saying that she looked tired and didn’t move great – come on people let’s not forget she is 53-years-old – I thought she worked the performance really well – especially loved her shuffling with LMFAO.

My favourite of the Givenchy Haute Couture looks by Riccardo Tisci had to be the hand-embroidered gold cape that Madonna wore for the performance opener, which was worn over a black mini dress accessories with a hand-studded belt and an exquisite Philip Treacy headpiece.

I also adored this gorgeous embellished black coat with sequins and micro pearls for her divine performance of ‘Like A Prayer’.

What did you think of Madonna’s first performance at the Superbowl?

SATC2: SJP Honours Friend In McQueen

Who: Sarah Jessica Parker

Where: At the London premiere of Sex and the City 2

Wearing: A black bustier/tulle Alexander McQueen frock with McQueen lace heels and a fabulous Philip Treacy hat

Verdict: Well I like how I predicted right that she would opt for McQueen while in London, after Lee McQueen’s death earlier this year SJP gave such a moving tribute about her friend, that this is the biggest honour she could give him. I also love the fact that she went for the full theatrics that McQueen would have loved with the Philip Treacy hat – which completes this amazing dress.

I know some people will hate this hat – but for me this pure SJP glamour and miles better than the Valentino she wore to the NY premiere earlier this week.

 

The rest of the girlies didn’t look too bad either – definitely feel that the fashion stakes were higher in London. Both Kim and Kristin went for vintage – I absolutely love Kim’s look – she really is working a old-Hollywood vibe which I love.

So who did you think was the best dressed?
