The Evolution of Super Bowl Halftime Costumes

From Diana Ross's giant gold coat to Beyoncé's itty bitty black leotard.

It's hard to imagine Super Bowl halftime without the insane costumes (and corresponding costume malfunctions)—and Jeremy Scott's outfit for Katy Perry next weekend is sure to join the hall of fame (minus the malfunction part, we hope). But back in the '90s when the first big Hollywood act took the stage—after almost 25 years of marching bands playing halftime—the costumes were tame. Don't believe us? Click through.
