30 Vintage Photos of a Young Janet Jackson in the 1980s

Janet Jackson was known before the 1980s, but it was this era that she really made a name for herself outside of the Jackson family. Along with her many hit singles from the decade, she quickly rose to become a queen of fashion.

The youngest member of America’s legendary Jackson family, Janet made her music industry breakthrough in the late 1980s with Control. Since, the singer has not only pioneered the sound of contemporary R&B and pop music, but has redefined what it means to be a modern popstar. Among her extensive and highly influential catalogue are all-time classics like new jack swing groundbreaker “Rhythm Nation”, slinky R&B jam “That’s The Way Love Goes” and legendary Y2K bop “All For You.”

Not only does she continue to shape the world of music and entertainment, but Jackson has also been quite the fashion star throughout her career. Going from power-suits and statement accessories in the 1980s/90s to the world of simple gowns in the contemporary era, she has made it a point to stay relevant and remain a name that is on everyone’s lips. In the 1980s, the singer was often spotted with bold lipstick and beautiful hair. And here, some of Jackson’s most memorable beauty looks from the 1980s.
