Nichelle Nichols and Zoe Saldana at 2009 BET Awards

Two Uhuras Boldly Go to the BET Awards

Aww. Here we have Zoe Saldana and previous Bella Donna pick Nichelle Nichols at the BET Awards. They're the two actresses who've played Lieutenant Uhura on Star Trek. If you look closely, you'll see that aside from their choices of lip color, the women have similar makeup styles. But where Zoe chooses a bright lip color, Nichelle sports a barely-there shade — a good choice for older women, since darker colors can "bleed" into lip lines. What makes me happiest about this photo is the way it shows that beauty isn't restricted to the young. Though they have 45 years between them—Zoe's 31, while Nichelle is 76—both women are, to put it mildly, stunning. So the next time you start to worry about a wrinkle here or a gray hair there, take a look at this photo as a reminder that a genuine smile, expression lines and white hair can be breathtaking, too. Love them!

Amen to that Bella. This is ageing gracefully. And they're both radiating.
