Celebrities' somber style at Michael Jackson tribute

Janet jackson black dress michael jackson memorial michael jackson fashion michael jackson style The celebrities who attended Michael Jackson’s memorial service dressed appropriately dark and simple for the somber occasion.  Brooke Shields wore a simple black shift dress, Kobe Bryant, Usher and Magic Johnson donned sharp black suits.  Janet Jackson looked amazing in classic pearls, a 1940s-inspired body-hugging dress and black beret slightly tilted on her head. 

The one guest who seemed to wear what looked more like a Michael Jackson costume was Corey Feldman, who came in a military-style jacket, black fedora and dark sunglasses.  Maybe Feldman’s been dressing like this for years and this is normal for him? Who knows? We haven’t seen too much of him since his reality show “The Two Coreys” stopped airing on the A&E network.
