Janet Jackson Named ‘Legend’ in Blackglama Ad Campaign


Janet Jackson will reprise her role as the spokesmodel for Blackglama’s ‘What Becomes a Legend Most’ ad campaign. Jackson was named a ‘Legend’ in last year’s campaign, as well, so this is familiar territory for her.

“She embodies glamour, luxury and sophistication, everything that Blackglama stands for,” Blacklama CEO Joe Morelli said of the petite singer/dancer, who is known for her fashionable pursuits as well as for her music. Blackglama’s past legends include glamazons like Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Ross and Liza Minelli. So Janet — Miss Jackson if you’re nasty — is in some classic company with this designation.

The new ads will begin running this fall, with the debut image landing the September issue of W. The black and white image to the left shows Jackson in a catsuit, looking fierce as ever.

In case you were not aware of what exactly Blackglama is, we’ll tell you. The Seattle-based company supplies “the finest, most luxurious and exclusive ranch-raised natural black mink.” Given the fact that Jackson is representing a company that traffics in the fur trade, animal rights activists might get their feathers ruffled by Jackson’s continued associations with a luxe fur brand. Jennifer Lopez has dealt with the same criticisms for her repeated wearing of fur products.
