Anticipation is building for Rihanna’s expected performance during the Super Bowl halftime show.
The Barbadian singer will take the 13-minute slot on Sunday, marking his first major performance in seven years – and the first since his son Asap Rocky was born in 2022.
In an Apple Music press conference on Thursday, Rihanna said: “When you become a mum, there’s something that happens where you feel like you can take on the world.
“You can do anything, and it’s the biggest step in the Super Bowl world.
“As scary as it was, because I hadn’t been on the show in seven years, there was something exhilarating about every challenge.
“And this is very important for me to do this, this year is important for representation and for my son it is important.”
For the press conference, the 34-year-old opted to wear a crocodile print dress paired with a cropped moto jacket and strappy high heels from Alaia.
Rihanna will undoubtedly use some tricks and tricks for her performance.
These are some aspects that have helped to solidify its status as a trend-setter.
This historic dress went into fashion as one of the original “bare” dresses, sparking a trend that is still in vogue today.
At the 2014 CFDA Awards, Rihanna accepted the Fashion Icon Award in an Adam Selman dress studded with sheer crystals.
She’s wearing matching headscarves, gloves and a hat – a mix of edgy and old Hollywood badass.
Plenty of Rihanna’s most famous figure moments have arrived at the Met Gala, where the Barbadian superstar is never afraid to commit to the dress code.
The theme for the 2015 event was China: Through the Looking Glass, and Rihanna chose Chinese designer Guo Pei to create the elaborate yellow look, which took two years to create.
Rihanna regularly appears on the Grammys red carpet, and in 2017 she did so in a dramatic Armani Prive outfit, consisting of a bright tangerine crop top and a black voluminous skirt.
The 2017 Met Gala was dedicated to the experimental design of Rei Kawakubo and the fabric house Comme des Garcons, and while many attendees avoided making too much of an impact, the same could not be said of Rihanna.
Comme des Garcons committed to a theme that could be described as an avant-garde flower bomb.
At the Cannes Festival
While Rihanna isn’t afraid to take risks with her fashion, she also knows how to look classic.
This lounge-inspired white strappy gown worn at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017 was undeniably chic and offered a modern touch with small sunglasses.
The 2018 Met Gala explored the relationship between Catholicism and style, and Rihanna wore the statement in the highest fashion.
A heavily bejeweled look from Maison Margiela lined the mini, with a heavy coat and a pope-inspired hat.
At the top of the ocean 8
After taking on the roles of Nine Ball in Ocean’s 8, Rihanna made sure to provide fans with an extravaganza for her promotional tour.
At the London premiere, she wore a liquid gold dress by Poiret with an asymmetrical hemline and an off-the-shoulder silhouette.
Rihanna’s Diamond Ball is a star-studded event supporting her charity, the Clara Lionel Foundation.
She wore Datchy Lake for the 2019 ball – a black silk turtleneck gown with a structured white caged hemline.
Rihanna knows how to make a political statement with her style.
For the 2021 Met Gala, she wore a black Balenciaga coat and an oversized beanie.
She said the interpretation of the hoodie is strong and feminine, saying on the red carpet that “it’s something that we tend to get accused of by black people.”
Rihanna’s pregnancy habits were considered by many to be earth-shattering.
She eschewed traditional maternity style, preferring to wear experimental clothes and use shows as her bump grew.
For Off-White’s early 2022 fashion show, she wore a tight peach fur coat with a matching shearling coat over the top.
