Janet Jackson Goes Dark in Jet-Black Jumpsuit and Platform Boots at Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony 2022

Janet Jackson brought power dressing to the stage at the 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

Arriving at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday night, the Grammy Award-winning star wore a power-pose-worthy jumpsuit. Her black silk piece included a high neckline, buttoned bodice and pointed collar, giving it an elevated suiting effect. Long sleeves and padded shoulders, as well as flowing legs and a set of thin gold square hoop earrings, finished her attire for the special occasion. The attire wasn’t just seen on red carpet, however; Jackson also wore the dynamic ensemble while inducting Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis with their Musical Excellence award onstage.

When it came to footwear, Jackson streamlined her ensemble with a pair of sky-high boots. The “Nasty” singer’s shoes featured black leather uppers with rounded toes, given an extra height boost by tiered stacked soles. The thick-soled pair was complete with a towering set of block heels; though they weren’t fully visible beneath her jumpsuit’s hems, the style likely totaled 5-6 inches in height. The set added a dynamic finish to Jackson’s bold outfit, proving the power of elevated details when it comes to monochrome dressing.
