The show[edit]

The four outfits worn on the tour.

During the filmed concert, Utada wore 4 different outfits. The first outfit worn was a long, tattered, black and white outfit(which seemingly resembled a wedding dress), with pieces of cloth that hung a little above her ankles. Near the shoulders, this dress seemed to puff out, or become feather-like. She sang her first 7 songs in this outfit. Then she wore a leather-like coat, that resembled a ballroom gown from the waist down. She sang her Exodus songs in this dress. When looked at closely, you can see that underneath it was the next outfit, which was a red dress. It had strips near the shoulders, and allowed her to move more, A feature which was helpful in performances like Can You Keep A Secret? and Wait & See ~Risk~. She sang the next 8 songs in this particular outfit. The last outfit, which was very light compared to the rest, had a small blue skirt and a light pink top. In this outfit, she sang her last 2 songs, Automatic and Hikari. In some of early performances, she substituted the pink top with a black blouse. Underneath all of the outfits was a black sleeve-less leotard and black knee high boots with wedge heels.
