A Derry born fashion-designer has said it was a privilege to design the outfit for Rihanna's Super Bowl half-time show, saying it felt "like a wild, wonderful dream".

Taking to Instagram, Northern Irish fashion designer and creative director of Loewe Jonathan Anderson said: "I'm so excited to have been part of this unforgettable moment. Rihanna is a true icon, and working with her to bring these stage looks to life feels like a wild, wonderful dream."

Rihanna's highly-anticipated return to the stage was a vibrant affair that saw the Barbadian singer wear head-to-toe red while performing at Super Bowl LVII - all while revealing her second pregnancy.

While suspended in the air, performing above State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, Rihanna kicked off the live performance - her first in seven years - dressed in Loewe.

Keeping her high-flying performance in mind, the Spanish luxury house created a custom "flight-inspired" look for the halftime show.

Born in Magherafelt, Co Derry, Anderson's fashion career began when he studied at the London College of Fashion before going on to launch his first Menswear collection under the JW Anderson label.

Soon after, he made history when he became the first individual to be awarded both Womenswear and Menswear Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.

In 2013, Anderson was named as creative director in of Lowe, a major luxury house that has been around since 1846.

Since taking the helm, the brand's website claims that he has spearheaded a major rejuvenation of the house, leading them to be an "influential and global cultural force".

For the Super Bowl show, Loewe dressed Rihanna in a custom red jumpsuit with a moulded breastplate, which she wore over her burgeoning pregnancy bump.

Styled by her long-time stylist and creative director Jahleel Weaver, Rihanna paired the striking jumpsuit with a selection of vintage brooches from Joseph Saidian & Sons.

She accessorised with a Bayco ring, Messika earrings, Jacob & Co watch, and some comfortable MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon sneakers - exceptionally slick maternity wear.

To close the show, the singer donned a custom Alaïa coat designed by Pieter Mulier that some fashion fans have speculated to be a tribute to the late André Leon Talley, an American fashion journalist, stylist, creative director, and editor-at-large of Vogue magazine who died in 2022.

Of course, Rihanna's own brands were also front and centre in the show.

The all-white puffer suits worn by the dancers were covering a collection of lingerie from Savage X Fenty, while the singer herself used Fenty Beauty's invisimatte blotting powder for a quick touch-up during the performance.

According to Fenty Beauty's Instagram, the entrepreneur's 'pre-show glow' came about thanks to a one-minute facial followed by a stream of Fenty Beauty products including some bronzer in shade ‘Bajan Gyal’ followed by some eyeshadow and 'flyliner', and a bold red lip to complete the look.

Her hair was slicked back into a high ponytail, with long strands framing her face for the live performance which garnered millions of viewers.
