The Most Iconic Super Bowl Outfits Of All Time, Ranked


The Halftime Show would be nothing without the fresh fits.

Sunday marks the 55th Super Bowl. And while some fans do truly care about the game, let’s be honest, the majority of us tune in to our TVs to see the Halftime Show.

This year it’s The Weeknd.

Performing at the Super Bowl is a special kind of honor for an artist. So naturally, they tend to bring their A-game, especially in terms of performance outfits.

That being said, here are 13 of the most iconic outfits of all time!

13.

Michael Jackson (1993)

Michael Jackson has never failed to deliver when it comes to fabulous attire.

12.

James Brown (1997)

The man wore an all-red suit. I think it speaks for itself.

11.

Britney Spears (2001)

This one I feel needs to be included because Britney out Britney-ed herself. The super-tight pants, the ripped T-shirt/crop-top all scream Britney.

10.

Beyoncé (2013)

Queen Bey’s outfit was obviously fabulous on its own, but the combined trio with Kelly and Michelle make for the perfect trifecta.

9.

Katy Perry (2015)

Let’s be honest, the outfit is very Fred Flinstones but riding a LION made the whole ensemble iconic.

8.

The Judds (1994)

Wynonna Judd came to deliver with this black, pirate-looking, suit. Here for it.

7.

Lady Gaga (2017)

The custom Versace WITH the jacket??

6.

Jennifer Lopez (2020)

It was like she was naked but for a few perfectly placed jewels. And the pole dancing was a game-changer.

5.

Madonna (2012)

That crown though. I’d expect nothing less from the Queen of Pop.

4.

Prince (2007)

Perhaps one of the smoothest, and most stylish Super Bowl performers. The purple guitar makes the whole fit.

3.

Beyoncé and Bruno Mars (2016)

Ok I know Beyoncé is on here twice, but nothing can surpass the complete power that was her surprise “Formation” performance alongside Bruno Mars in 2016. Coldplay was the headliner that year but Queen Bey and Bruno stole the show with their black leather-clad dance-off.

2.

Janet Jackson (2004)

This one is iconic for reasons other than just the outfit.

1.

Patti LaBelle (1995)

Patti LaBelle managed to look both sexy and classy. No offense to the other performers, but they pale in comparison.
