Jazmine Sullivan Paid Tribute to Whitney Houston With Her Shimmery Headpiece

Jazmine Sullivan took the field at Super Bowl LV to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner", alongside country star Eric Church, wearing a stunning white suit and shimmery headpiece. The singer opted for a white suit by the NYC-based brand Area, created by designers Beckett Fogg and Piotrek Panszczyk. The duo is known for their couture-inspired looks that often feature tons of embellishments and extravagant headpieces. She accessorized with a tennis bracelet by Sylva & Cie. It turns out, Jazmine was actually paying homage to the one and only Whitney Houston.
