She's looking kind of sad there.
She looked youthful in France just two years ago when she walked the carpet of an AIDS event in a cut-out white gown that accentuated her trim figure.
But on Friday Janet Jackson was nearly unrecognizable as she attended a Vogue Fashion event in Dubai.With a puffier face and severely arched eyebrows, the 48-year-old sister of the late King Of Pop Michael Jackson looked quite different.
Gone was the Damita Jo singer's trademark dimples and cute smile.Instead, the Indiana native appeared morose and uncomfortable with a slight grimace as she was escorted through a crowd.
Her eyes said even more as she looked down while two hulking bodyguards stood behind her.
Even her eyebrows were off as they arched high above her lashes. (Arab style aka angry birds or Mr. Spock)
The pulled up locks worn in a I Dream Of Jeannie style also added to her different look.The change in her face may have just been due to a change in her weight.The normally svelte superstar - who came to fame in the eighties with such hits as 1986's Control and 1989's Escapade - appears to have added a few pounds to her petite frame.
The Nasty singer covered up her body in a black dress that had long sleeves and a high neckline. A diamond necklace gave her some sparkle as did matching diamond stud earrings.The Why Did I Get Married? actress still cut a glamorous figure, however.She was following a man in a long white Ghotra and matching jacket.The beauty was escorted into the event by at least five guards, all of whom wore black suits and a serious expression.
