Janet Jackson has brought back a style that honestly never really went out of style. Stevie Wonder has been wearing them for more than three decades. Back in the day, it used to be fashionable to dress them up with beads. Just ask artists like Patrice Rushen, Valerie Simpson, and Bo Derek even. Yes ladies and gentlemen, we are talking about the box braids.
Janet Jackson made them a must have in the mainstream, back in the 90s, when she sported them in “Poetic Justice”. Tupac played her love interest. Beyoncé can be seen with box braids, in her documentary “ Life Is But a Dream” . Now Ms. Jackson has given new life to the 90’s style.
Just recently Jackson and her billionaire fiancé, Wissam Al Mana were front row at the Versace show for the Milan Fashion Week, where she was seen with her famous braids up in a ponytail. Jackson and Wissam Al Mana announced their engagement back in December of last year. This will be Jackson’s third marriage.
