Each and every year, we wait on the edges of our seats for the Super Bowl halftime show to begin! No matter who’s performing, it’s bound to be absolutely mesmerizing — thanks in part to the sexy, sensational costumes we get to see people like Gwen Stefani, 46, and Britney Spears, 34, rocking! With Beyoncé, 34, set to join Coldplay onstage for Super Bowl, we can’t help but reminisce about the beautiful, bodacious costumes of the past. Click through to see the best of the best!
It would be crazy if we didn’t talk about the ultimate in sexy halftime outfits first: Janet Jackson. Think all the way back to 2004, when Janet was performing an insanely sexy duet of “Rock Your Body” with Justin Timberlake, 35. Her all leather ensemble was already great, and then came the moment that coined the term “wardrobe malfunction” itself: Justin pulled on her top and accidentally revealed her nipple ring! So sexy that the FCC couldn’t handle it!
Fast forward to 2013, when Beyoncé took the stage in New Orleans to prove that girls do run the world. Besides bringing Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams back together to form Destiny’s Child again for one night, we were floored by her insane leather bodysuit, black leather gloves, nude fishnets and knee high stockings. She was the embodiment of Queen Bey in that moment!
People like to focus on Left Shark when they talk about Katy Perry‘s 2015 Super Bowl halftime performance, but even that star couldn’t outshine Katy’s incredible, colorful outfits. She had several costume changes throughout her sprawling show: a transparent, sparkling star-covered evening gown, golden dress covered in cartoon flames, and an adorably sexy playsuit striped like a beach ball. Amazing!
But you have to throw it back to some of the best outfits of the early aughts, too. Britney once performed during halftime with NSYNC and Aerosmith. Right? Her outfit was perfectly Britney: cropped football pants and a tiny cropped Aerosmith tee. She made casual football gear look as sexy as any of her stage outfits! In 2003, Gwen did a glammed-up version of her usual No Doubt uniform: bejeweled sports bra, red underwear, baggy skater pants, sneakers and a studded belt. She looked bangin’!
