Welcome back, Ms. Jackson!
On the same day that Beyonce flawlessly channeled her on Halloween, Janet Jackson made a surprising red carpet appearance on Friday -- her first in over a year -- at the Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience in the United Arab Emirates.
Sporting a fitted, long-sleeve black dress, the 48-year-old singer wore her hair in a super-high ponytail, showing off her killer cheekbones.
Her makeup artist, Preston Meneses, also posted this cute selfie of the two, highlighting Janet's arched eyebrows.
"Such a wonderful time here in #Dubai with my sis 😀 painted by me #makeupartist #prestonmakeup #vogue #voguedubai #makeup #makeupforever #janetjackson," he wrote.
Janet's last public appearance was at amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala, all the way back in May 2013.
Are you a fan of Janet's new look?
Last June, Janet lent her star power to a campaign to help starving children in Africa by appearing in a public service announcement for The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
