Mary J. Blige shimmered during her Super Bowl 2022 halftime execution.
The vocalist, 51, joined Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar – with an unexpected appearance by 50 Cent – during Sunday’s major event, conveniently surpassing the others with her gleaming Peter Dundas disco ball look.
Blige played out
“A Family Affair” and “No More Drama”
in a long-sleeve ribbon up crop top with matching hot jeans, finger-less gloves and thigh-high boots, all canvassed in an intelligent panther print and silver sequins.
She increased the bling factor considerably more with Sister Love band studs shrouded in 33 carats of jewels ($1,500) and, at the climax of the exhibition, finished everything off with a matching wide-overflow cap over her hip-length fair expansions.
Dundas let WWD know that he was motivated by French stone carver Niki de Saint Phalle and her models of ladies canvassed in mirrors, utilizing laser-cut mirror pieces in a
“snow panther” design.
“I thought [the mirrors] worked really well with Mary because she pulls so much on your heartstrings with singing about things that you kind of identify with yourself,” he said. “She almost becomes a reflection of the audience as well.”
“Amazing. That is all I will say, amazing. I think you need to give them Mary on steroids, just, similar to, the most lovely, captivating, ghetto astonishing whatever! We will take it to a totally separate level,” she told Entertainment Tonight of her outfit in front of the uncover.
After the show, Dundas will make the vocalist’s custom look accessible as a NFT so anybody can resemble “Mary on steroids” in the Metaverse.
