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.

It’s Katy Perry’s 30th Birthday! See Her Transform from High School Freshman to Pop Queen

Born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, the wildly personable and international pop icon Katy Perry rings in the big 3-0 today, but that’s not all the singer has to celebrate.

Since her introductory days into the music industry as a gospel singer (adorable, right?), the “Roar” songstress has solidified her place among the best-selling artists of all time after her Teenage Dream album became the first by a female artist to produce five No. 1 songs in a row. All in a day’s work for Katy Perry, but that’s what you’d expect from an artist who has sold more than 72 million digital singles, which made her the best-selling digital singles artist in the U.S. earlier this year. And as if you aren’t already impressed, Katy added Twitter tycoon to her already extensive list of accolades when she became the first person to hit 50 million followers, which broke the Guinness World Record for most Twitter followers and officially inspired us to step up our social-media game.

Ever the daring, fashion-forward trendsetter, word on the street is Katy is in the market to produce her own fashion brand, a move that will surely send every Katy Cat clamoring for a piece of the “Firework” singer’s audacious style. Speaking of which, we can’t wait to see what crowd-pleasing fashion liberties she will take when she headlines the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX halftime show on Feb. 1.

Is there anything this superwoman can’t do? Katy Perry for president! Just kidding, but really.
