Sanaa Lathan and Nia Long have been acting since the early ’90s and their friendship goes back nearly just as far. The actresses starred alongside each other in 1999’s The Best Man and have been by one another’s sides on many red carpets between the premiere of the hit movie and it’s 2013 sequel, The Best Man Holiday. 

Over the years, the two have shared in one another’s successes and decades of interesting fashion choices as well. For this throwback Thursday tribute, we take a look back at their friendship and fashion over the years.
