A true relic of '90s culture, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is no doubt one of the funniest shows to have ever graced TV, despite it premiering almost 25 years ago!

The super charismatic badass of royalty, Will Smith, dominated the screen with his larger than life presence, so it's easy to forget that the show also featured some incredible A-list cameos, courtesy of stars like Queen Latifah and Tyra Banks. The drop-dead gorgeous female cast have come a long way in a quarter of a decade (wow I feel old!), so how are they doing now?

Well, these timeless beauties might have aged, but they certainly haven't lost it. Here are the babes of Bel-Air, then and now...
