The event heralds the accomplishments of both emerging and established artists and influencers in the industry, and this year’s show will celebrate the best and brightest moments in Black music over Essence’s 45-year history.

Katy Perry’s Superbowl Halftime Performance Was Epic (Here Are the Looks That Prove It)

Katy Perry is one helluva firework! She blew everyone away during her halftime performance at the XLIX Super Bowl with a kaleidoscopic show that featured a megaton lion, a performance by Lenny Kravitz, a Missy Elliot cameo, and a whopping total of four unforgettable crazy-cool costumes (a feat that we have designer Jeremy Scott to thank).

Girl on Fire (below): The star was on fire from the get-go, making an entrance singing “Roar” perched atop a larger-than-life robotic lion all ablaze in fire-emblazoned separates and glittery booties. She continued to burn bright through “Dark Horse” and an “I Kissed a Girl” duet with Kravitz (who was outfitted in a cool fringed moto jacket, a beaded tank, and destroyed denim).

Life’s a Beach (below): To complement the beach backdrop, complete with trippy life-size palm trees, sharks, and surf boards, Perry switched into a playful beach ball-inspired bustier top with a matching skater skirt to sing “Teenage Dream” and “California Gurls.”

Missy Time (below): During Missy Elliot’s too-cool cameo where she belted out hits “Get Your Freak On” and “Lose Control,” Perry got her freak on in an oversize bedazzled “49” (for the 49th Super Bowl) jersey jacket styled with nothing else except for tights and her booties.

A Starry Finale (below): Perry reached for the stars during her performance of her final song, “Firework,” floating up and across the arena in a shooting star. And she looked the part, with a spangled high-slit gown with iridescent stars affixed all over.

Happy birthday, Chloe Sevigny! The actress celebrates a major milestone today–her 40th birthday. Sevigny has starred in a medley of films and TV shows, including Boys Don’t Cry, Big Love, American Horror Story, and The Mindy Project, to name a few. Acting chops aside, the star is also known for her unique sense of style, which she touched upon last year. “I think that you shouldn’t be afraid of being an individual,” Sevigny told InStyle. “People are so afraid of criticism, especially from all of the tabloid magazines and stuff, but I think that the InStyles of the world always seem to celebrate individuality more, so I just keep that in mind.” Hear, hear! In honor of Chloe Sevigny’s birthday, we’re taking a look back at her top 10 style moments so far.
