Super Bowl Performance – Givenchy Haute Couture Costume Sketches by Riccardo Tisci

The House of Givenchy is pleased to announce that Riccardo Tisci designed all costumes worn by Madonna during her half time performance at the Superbowl on February 5th, 2012 in Indianapolis.

Performing at the Superbowl for the first time, Madonna has chosen Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci for her unique performance.
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.

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.

The costumes included…

A gold cape all over hand-embroidered with gold metal cut out pieces, studs, crystals, sequins and paillettes, lined in leopard-print chiffon.
A black mini dress in silk cady, worn with leopard print short cape in silk charmeuse hand-embroidered with gold metal cut out pieces, studs, crystals, sequins and paillettes and a black python hand-studded and hand-embroidered belt with its removable matching flaps.
A black coat in silk cady hand-embroidered with shiny black rectangular sequins and micro pearls.
A gold metal hat hand-embroidered with crystals.

All worn with hand embroidered nappa leather gloves.
