Super Bowl Weekend has brought an elite group of performers to Houston. While Lady Gaga is gearing up for her halftime gig, others have been showing off their own talents, including stars like Solange, Fergie, and Bruno Mars, all taking to various stages throughout the weekend. One of the highlights? Taylor Swift at Club Nomadic.
For her 90-minute set, Swift pulled out all the stops. She brought a piano on stage, danced with back-up dancers and performed songs like “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” (sans Zayn Malik) and “Better Man,” both for the first time.
To strengthen the performance, she even performed songs she wrote for other artists like “This Is What You Came For,” recorded by Rihanna. And it’s for good reason, as it may be the star’s only performance for the year.
“As far as I know I’m only doing one show in 2017, and as far as I know, this is that show,” she told the crowd excitedly. “By coming to this show tonight, you are attending 100 percent of this year’s tour dates.” But for the entire night, she kept her look the same: bangs, red lip, and the perfect short Versace custom dress. It was a stunner.
With a bodice and sleeves of crystalized lace over a bandeau top and a glittering fringe skirt, the look was both practical and fun. It showed off her legs, which are no doubt one of Swift’s favorite body parts, as the skirt was cut high on the thigh, leaving her long gams bare all the way down to her high-heeled black booties. Unlike her last live performance (which was her first since 2015, making this one her second) she was not wearing a choker, possibly killing fans’ dreams of a new era.
Swifties will no doubt be familiar with Versace. The country-pop singer has teamed up with fellow blonde Donatella Versace before. Last year Swift wore the designer to the Grammy’s, and she’s close friends with Bella and Gigi Hadid, who have also been quite close to Donatella.

But what must have made this special concert even more special for her fans came during one of the short intermissions of the epic event. Swift needed a bit of help with her look, asking fans to fix her sleeve. In that moment, the delicacy and intricacy of the dress was immediately evident — a button had come undone. Her friends were more than eager to lend a helping hand.
