Rihanna Tore the Roof Off the Super Bowl Stadium in a Red Bustier and Matching Jumpsuit

Someone's shining bright like a diamond.

Rihanna just returned to the stage for the first time in seven years to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show—and it was worth the wait for the look alone.

On February 12, Rihanna took the stage during at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, wearing a bright red Loewe jumpsuit and bustier over a matching skintight bodysuit reminiscent of “Oops I Did It Again”–era Britney Spears. The performer kept her hair relatively simple compared with the sculptural piece she showed off in her ad for the halftime performance, sticking with a braided high pony with pieces around her face.

The icon performed a medley of her biggest hits, starting with “Bitch Better Have My Money,” surrounded by a small army of white-clad dancers moving across a series of floating stages. Highlights of the 10-minute set included the fireworks show punctuating the lyrics in “We Found Love” and the moment RiRi paused to touch up her makeup and boost her own Fenty brand at the same time.

At one point, Rihanna added a floor-length Alaïa cape to her all-red outfit, which also included gloves and some diamond accessories—appropriate for the woman who invented what it means to “shine bright like a diamond.”

“When I first got the call to do it again this year I was like, ‘Are you sure? I’m three months postpartum. Should I be making major decisions like this right now? I might regret this,’” Rihanna said during a Super Bowl halftime show press conference on February 9, per Variety. “When you become a mom there’s something that happens where you feel like you can take on the world and can do anything. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. As scary as it was, because I haven’t been on stage in seven years, there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. It’s important for me to do this year. It’s important for my son to see that.”

Rihanna also told reporters that she reworked the set list about 39 times before narrowing her performance down to 13 minutes. “I’m feeling open to exploring, discovering, creating things that are new, things that are different, things that are off, weird,” she said about future albums. “Might not ever make sense to my fans…. I want to have fun with music.”
