Welcome back, Ms. Jackson!

On the same day that Beyonceflawlessly channeled her on Halloween, Janet Jackson made a surprising red carpet appearance on Friday -- her first in over a year -- at the Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience in the United Arab Emirates.

Sporting a fitted, long-sleeve black dress, the 48-year-old singer wore her hair in a super-high ponytail, showing off her killer cheekbones.
