When faced with an iconic moment like performing at the Super Bowl, rest assured Beyoncé utilized every resource to make an equally iconic fashion statement.
With millions of eyes fixated on her, the 34-year-old Grammy winner marched onto the football field in Calif. Sunday adorned in a black custom leather jacket with gold metal military details. It was a unique twist on the singer's classic and consistent one-piece stage look.
The men behind the ensemble, Dsquared2's designers Dean and Dan Caten, knew they were designing for a musical battle.
"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 men said in a press release.
However, don't mistake the outfit for a copy of one of Beyoncé's personal musical icons, Michael Jackson.
"It was not [Michael Jackson inspired]," the men told E! News exclusively. "Both looks were military inspired and it was a happy coincidence to have the look be a nod to a past performance for the 50th Super Bowl."
