Michael Jackson was buried in full make-up and wearing an outfit inspired by all the costumes the King of Pop wore during his career. On the one-year anniversary of his death, the pop superstar's longtime costume and wardrobe designers were commissioned to create a final image for the dead superstar - so he could go to the grave looking his best.

Dennis Tompkins, Michael Bush and Karen Faye teamed up as they had for 25 years to perfect Jackson's last look - the items he'd be buried in at Forest Lawn Cemetery. In a TV documentary, which will air in America on Friday night, June 25, Faye says, "It was an honor... I knew how he wanted to look, so I did it for his family and his children."

Meanwhile, Jackson's longtime stylists Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush spent nine hours creating the clothes for Jackson's funeral. Tompkins also designed a crown which was placed on the King of Pop's casket.

He recalls, "When the casket was brought in at Forest Lawn, Prince, Paris and Blanket lifted it (crown) and put it on the center." And Bush has confirmed the tragic singer's famous white sequined glove was not buried with Jackson: "To Michael, the glove was 'Billie Jean'. That represented that song. That's not Michael Jackson."

I want to know why Janet to media Michael was buried dressed all in white and with strands of pearls? Also, I wish people that weren't fans of Michael not even followers of his music would stop speaking of the negativity that followed him. Today, one can find all kinds of information regarding his life, his character and it is the same repeated by many that knew him where these people could not have made some agreement to all say the exact same things of him. They are too many people and from very different time periods of his life. It is slander to speak ill of him because there is even court documents with the truth of his innocents. There is an FBI file going back to early 1990's with a report of a profiler that states Michael did not have any of the characteristics of a child molester. Why don't people make certain of what they are going to say? The info is available, it's not like before were the public could only get info from reporters and then we had to believe what our guts said. TODAY THE FACTS ARE OUT! Won't people please get their info straight before they talk?
