R&B vocalist Jazmine Sullivan took the stage ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl game to perform the National anthem along with country singer Eric Church. 

While many were focused on Sullivan’s voice, others could not take their eyes off her stunning white ensemble. The 33-year-old wore a crystal stitched corset blazer, matching pants, and a dazzling crystal headpiece from NYC-based retailer, Area. To further accentuate her beauty, Sullivan pulled her hair in a slicked-back ponytail.

The blazer and the headpiece are both available on the Area website, priced at $1,550 and $450, respectively. Twitter fans noticed the similarities between Sullivan’s headpiece and that of the late Whitney Houston from her lead role in the film, The Bodyguard. 

Fans also noticed Jazmine wore a white tracksuit during her rehearsal performance that looked similar to the one Houston wore during her own Super Bowl performance in 1991.

“@jsullivanmusic yes ma’m that headpiece, the white suit, the long ponytail baby,” wrote one fan with fire emojis.

Another tweeted, “Jazmine Sullivan this is your time. From Heaux Tales to the National Anthem. Talk about versatility. Go head on and win then.”

Many related Sullivan’s stunning vocal performance to her January album, Heaux Taleswhich features an appearance from multi-Grammy-winning vocalist H.E.R. 

“Two black queens at the Super Bowl, What a message,” tweeted H.E.R., who performed “America the Beautiful” Sunday night at the Super Bowl.
