Fergie looked pretty darn sexy on stage during her performance at the super bowl all thanks to haute-tech designer Anouk Wipprecht working alongside Bea Akerlund, a celebrity stylist whose client roster includes both Gaga and Madonna.
From the illuminated fiber optic boots to the glammed-up football shoulder pads, Anouk Wipprecht created dazzling stage wear that was a delightful fusion of glam rock and science fiction.
Engineered by Tom Talmon, Fergie’s chest piece was designed using animated LEDs and Swarovski crystals while her fierce boots were made using fiber optic fabric by Luminex. The shoes were a collaboration with shoemaker Rene van den Berg.
If you haven’t been following Anouk Wipprecht closely, you should. Her continued collaboration with V2_ has been seminal in launching her career. Aptly put by V2_, it’s been a personal pleasure watching a young designer take her designs from the “lab to showbiz.”
Her creative approach coupled with her fierce styling is capturing Hollywood’s and the music industry’s imagination.
Looking forward to seeing what’s next!
And oh — just in case you missed it…
