Not only did she tear the house down with her given spectacle of a fabulously lip-synced performance but her fashion was equally show-stopping thanks to Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy and renowned Irish milliner Philip Treacy. As the halftime show commenced, Madonna was preceded by a mass of Roman gladiators hauling in her elaborate Egyptian/Cleopatra themed chariot. Underneath the luminous gold robe of her throne ensemble was her own black and gold gladiator costume topped with her rather ethereal Philip Treacy headdress; a flawless combination of elegance and severity. Shortly afterward, she donned a respectable clergy-like dress for her concluding Like A Prayer performance. From start to finish, fashion lovers were gifted with three remarkable looks, and a beautifully ornate headdress, by some of the most talented designers in contemporary fashion. Thank you Riccardo Tisci and Philip Treacy.
