Janet Jackson has reason to celebrate. As she welcomes her 45th birthday today (May 16), the superstar entertainer can breathe easy knowing that during her lauded career, she’s had more fashion hits than misses. Jackson’s never been dull, pulling off a chic military look during her ‘Rhythm Nation‘ days and even sporting a nose ring and fiery red hair in 1997. Then there was her racy ensemble at Super Bowl XXXVIII and, in contrast, such classic, angelic looks like the white gowns she’d showcase at awards shows.
For those wondering how she’s managed to radiate both on and off stage, the secret may be best found in the music icon’s new book, ‘True You: A Journey to Finding and Loving Yourself,’ which serves as both an autobiography and self-help manual. “Achieving your true you is going to be different for everyone,” Jackson tells the BoomBox. “For me, it is about having confidence in myself, loving myself for how I am and living a happy life.”
To celebrate Janet Jackson’s 45 years with us, we take a look back at the ever-changing styles she’s brought to red carpets, music videos and the like. From her childhood to the present, here’s 45 ways the Grammy-winning pop star and actress has remained in control of her style.
