Jennifer Lopez stuns the crowd with her looks and outfit as she handles the Super Bowl LIV halftime on Sunday night (Feb 2, 2020). She proposes a 15-minute performance with the melody of some of her greatest hits.
Her outfit consists of three outfits that were in collaboration with Atelier Versace and Swarovski. But one of her outfits attracts controversy. Because of the custom bodysuit and a coat with white, red and blue feathers.

She wears the outfit on her daughter’s, Emme, performance on the song “Born in the U.S.A.”
While the coat was an eye-popping fashion statement, animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) slams the singer by saying ” Love Don’t Cost a Thing”.
This flag could have flown without killing birds.

PETA in a tweet says “This flag could have flown without killing birds”. The tweets include the picture of Lopez with the flag coat and next to it a plucked bird hanging on hooks.
Mariel Haenn, one of the stylists on Lopez’s look, reveals that there are 40,000 feathers, in all, each sewn in individually.
Versace replies to the PETA accusation by an Instagram post on their account.

@jlo's silver-toned bodysuit exemplifies #AtelierVersace's dedication to hand-craftsmanship. The garment creation starts by manually twisting signature Metal Mesh and then beading clear, white and silver Swarovski crystals into a fringe. The metallic fringe is then hand-sewn onto a tulle base and enriched with Crystal Mesh and leather bondage-inspired belts. The monumental banner depicts the United States of America's stars and stripes on one side, and Puerto Rico's flag on the other. All feathers used for the flag were sourced ethically. #VersaceCelebrities #JLo #SuperBowl #SuperBowlLIV #SBLIV
