Queen Bey is back! Three years after shutting down the Super Bowl with her halftime performance (the lights did go out, after all), Beyonce returned to the NFL’s biggest game of the year to show who’s boss on Sunday night at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
The performer, who joined Coldplay and a Versace-clad Bruno Mars during halftime, stole the show with her killer dance moves (save for when she nearly slipped) and, of course, her sexiest onstage outfit yet. Bey shut it down in a military-inspired leather jacket underneath a black bodysuit and studded Christian Louboutin booties — almost as a nod to Michael Jackson’s halftime look in 1993.

The custom look was designed in collaboration with Dsquared2’s Dean and Dan Caten. “We love Beyonce and wanted to create something where she resembles a warrior leading her female posse who fall into formation and take Super Bowl 50 at half-time,” the designers said in a release.
After her show-stopping performance, Bey released a commercial announcing her Formation tour.
Beyonce’s return to the Super Bowl comes just one day after she dropped a surprise music video for her new single, “Formation,” in which she’s seen in designs from Gucci, Zimmermann and Alessandra Rich. And yes, you can bet she slay.
