These Are a Few of Janet Jackson's Favorite Things
For more than four decades, Janet Jackson has captivated audiences with her catchy vocals, epic dance moves, and megawatt smile. Even after all this time, her stage presence is downright unbeatable — thanks, largely in part, to her one-of-a-kind concert wardrobes. Though the 52-year-old singer established herself as a style icon in her own right long ago, we constantly find ourselves impressed by her bold fashion choices — both on stage and off.

For InStyle’s October issue, we asked our cover star to dish on all of her style staples, including her footwear faves, signature sunglasses, and the piece of jewelry she’s coveting right now (there’s a sweet story behind it). And we didn’t stop at her fashion essentials. Jackson spilled on all of her current favorites across the board, from the beauty products and travel items she swears by and her most “Escapade”-worthy getaway spots to the book she reads to her 1-year-old son on repeat. Scroll down for 17 of her top picks, and for more stories like this, pick up the October issue of InStyle, available on newsstands, on Amazon, and for digital download Sept. 14.
