Her aim was to make the show feel like past, present, and future at once, said Alexandra Mandelkorn, her stylist. During the whole performance, she wore a mix from her tour outfits, combined with new accessories. Her opening and closing style were two black and red military-style jackets.

“She’s like some starship commander from an amazing Afrofuture planet”, Mandelkorn said. “There’s a through line of militaristic elements throughout the show. It gives a commanding presence and evokes the sense of leadership”, she added.

Ariana Grande 

She owned the stage wearing a flared mini skirt, with a top and thigh- high boots in lavender, pink and burgundy. But the final touch to her typical Ari outfit was her pouf shoulder sleeves, that created a look of shawl-like sleeves around her entire arm.

Rosalia brought the 80s logo-mania back on stage. She performed Con Altura with J Bavlin, wearing a very on trend pink Louis Vuitton logo print tracksuit paired with a pair of those love-to-hate chunky, white sneakers.
