Both singers opted for sexy black outfits when they preformed at the halftime show — but which look did you like better? VOTE!

On Feb.3 Beyonce Knowles, 31, kicked off the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVII halftime show in style! It was the most anticipated performance yet. Queen Bey put her fantastic figure on full display when she stripped down on stage, singing and dancing the whole time!

She wore a plunging leather corset and skirt which was later stripped off to reveal a lace bodysuit designed by Rubin Singer. He actually created a number of ensembles for her over the years. Rubin said that it took weeks of preparation with 14 workers and 200 man hours. He revealed that Beyonce’s stunning outfit was based on his Autumn 2013 collection entitled Valkyrie’s Dominion. The inspirations behind the collection is a reference to Norse mythology’s dominant female warriors. While we thought Beyonce looked show-stopping, she wasn’t the only singer to wow the crowd on stage for the halftime show!

Madonna’s Super Bowl Outfit: 2012 Halftime Show

Great minds think alike, indeed, as Madonna, 54, also chose an outfit that resembled ancient mythology from the Egyptians and Romans. She certainly had the warrior look going with gold, hand-embroidered full-length gowns with headdress and a cape that was hand-embroidered with gold metal, studs, crystals, and lined in leopard-print chiffon. The Queen of Pop was portraying an Egyptian goddess with a dash of Versace-inspired Greece in this Givenchy Haute Couture creation by Riccardo Tisci. Madonna is known for reinventing herself so it wasn’t a surprise when she decided to reinvent herself once again just in time for the Super Bowl XLVI on Feb.2.2012.
