Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Dramatic Puff Sleeves Were the Real Super Bowl Winners
Sheryl Lee Ralph was red hot in a fiery power suit during her uplifting Super Bowl performance. The actor and singer gave a soulful rendition of “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” wearing an outfit as bold as her voice. Ahead of the big game on Feb. 12, she wore a custom red Harbison jumpsuit tailored to absolute perfection. The look came complete with a dramatic train that pooled around her on a white platform and voluminous off-the-shoulder puff sleeves. Black fabric lined the back of the pantsuit and ran across her neckline, adding contrast to the shining gold hardware that trailed down her torso, featuring a delicate hammered gold leaf in the very center.
As it turns out, good style runs in her family, with Ralph’s 28-year-old daughter, Ivy-Victoria Maurice, serving as her stylist for the night. She accessorized her mom with elegant red gloves that reached her elbows, earrings by Nikos Koulis, and coordinating red open-toe pumps. Ralph left her hair down and kept her makeup simple yet stunning, with a smoky eye and neutral glossy lip. Behind her, several backup singers harmonized in monochromatic white suits, which emphasized Ralph’s own bright color palette.
Ralph is one of many exciting performers at Super Bowl LVII, along with Rihanna, Babyface, and Chris Stapleton. Read on to get a closer look at her striking outfit, and stay tuned for more impressive game-day fashion moments ahead.
