We stayed up to watch the Bowl last night - of course not for the game - that would be ridiculous!
No there was only one reason to stay awake last night and that was for the half time performance of Mrs Carter - AKA the awesomeness that is Beyonce
It took over 200 hours to create the Rubin Singer designed leather and lace outfit that Beyonce wore for 8 minutes!!
She came strutting out of the Super Dome in New Orleans in a belted leather exaggerated cap sleeve jacket with attached tiny matching liquid skirt, fishnets and high boots
and boy, did she strut!!!!!!
The entire outfit was never going to stay on for very long!!
During the first number 'Crazy in Love', Beyonce, surrounded by hot backing dancers who were
also dressed by Singer threw off her jacket to reveal - well ........ perfection!
The designer explained how he came up with the design .....
“Strips of engineered python, paneled iguana, and trapunto/pick stitched leather were sewn together in contrast to the flounce skirt and insets of delicate black Chantilly lace in areas where skin can be seen,” explains a press release. “This item proved to be incredibly challenging as it not only needed to be dramatic but had to withstand the rigorous dance moves required for the performance.”
The end result “is truly couture in every way,” Singer continues. “My seamstresses were assembling all of the leather and exotic skins individually by hand. All of the pieces were separate details that were all constructed on her body… Beyoncé is such a fierce and intense performer we could not have the outfit constrict her in any way.”
It was heavily rumoured that the appearance would include the return of Kelly and Michelle
They joined her for a shorterned performance of Single Ladies and Independent Woman
but it was only ever really about Beyonce!
and backstage immediately after - of course Jay-Z was waiting for her!
The girl is just too damn good - I would be jumping for joy too!
Now, do we need to step away from the cookies to achieve thighs like this ...........
