It wasn’t exactly a thrilling game, but Super Bowl XLVIII delivered plenty of style highlights.

From Bruno’s flashy suit to Joe Namath’s furry coat, let’s count down the top five Super Bowl fashion moments.

5. Bruno Mars and co. in custom Saint Laurent

For the halftime show, Bruno and his band wore custom suits from Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane, who is known for dressing rock stars like Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, and Daft Punk. For some, the gold slim-fit blazers were more Broadway — think Jersey Boys — than badass.

A near-identical Saint Laurent jacket is available — on sale! — at Bergdorf Goodman.

4. Anthony Kiedis’ leggings

Luckily for Kiedis, the mercury rose to a balmy 50 degrees at MetLife Stadium. The Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman went topless, covering his lower half with a pair of printed leggings by Jeremy Scott. During the Peppers’ halftime performance, Scott took to Instagram to share a photo of Kiedis in his design, writing: “How awesome was it that Anthony Kiedis wore my delete history screen saver print leggings for his #halftime performance w @BrunoMars!”

2. Reneé Fleming’s makes Super Bowl history in Vera Wang

Fleming became the first opera singer the perform the national anthem at the Super Bowl. The soprano’s rendition was made even more memorable thanks to her dramatic black-and-white gown, designed just for her by Vera Wang.

1. Joe Namath’s mink coat

The Hall of Famer’s hooded mink coat got more attention than his botched coin toss. (The former New York Jets quarterback is a longtime fan of fur and was often spotted sporting shaggy coats on the sidelines in the ’70s.) In a matter of minutes, Broadway Joe’s jacket was an Internet sensation, drawing ire from animal rights activists and comparisons to Macklemore, Seinfeld‘s Kramer, and the bundled-up monkey found at an IKEA store in 2012. Using the magic of Photoshop, Sean Combs inserted himself into the moment, posting a picture to Instagram with the caption: “Me and the original Broadway Joe with our furs draggin!!” By halftime, the coat had its own Twitter handle — @joenamathscoat.
