Amanda Gorman kicked off Super Bowl on a poetic note, with a poem that was pre-taped but aired live. The 22-year-old, who has been making a statement with her fashion choices since Inauguration Day, turned heads yet again this time.
For the occasion, Gorman wore a metallic blue coat with gold embellishments from Moschino by Jeremy Scott. She paired it with a pearl headband, an accessory that has been part of her looks earlier too — be it Inauguration Day or her TIME cover photo. Her look was styled by Jason Bolden, who also put together her TIME cover look.
Gorman had earlier spoken about the significance of the headbands. “At the inauguration (of US President Joe Biden), I truly wanted to continue the history of strong women in headbands. It was my mom who suggested I wear it horizontal with my thick braids. l highly suggest a headband crown for anyone wanting to stand taller, straighter, & prouder,” she wrote on Twitter.

Gorman’s poem was dedicated to three individuals who made a difference through their work — educator Trimaine Davis, nurse Suzie Dorner, and Marine veteran James Martin. “Today we honor our three captains for their actions and impact in a time of uncertainty and need,” she said before beginning her performance.
Meanwhile, netizens took note of Gorman’s look and appreciated it. Here’s what they said:
