Vanessa Williams has got the right stuff.

Here's the 26-year-old back in 1989 (left) -- and 23 years later, the 49-year-old at an event in L.A. (right).

Despite being being forced to relinquish her title, she'll always be Miss America.

I would really like to see her going down on another woman again so that I can make a fair comparison

You a third category: Good Genes AND Good Doc.

She obviously has both, and has always looked gorgeous.

yes, she uses botox and she admitted it during an interview ,nevertheless she's still gorgeous because her beauty is natural;she is getting old like all the people; for this reason it's normal if she looks different than almost 30 years ago!! any way....i love you vanessa!!i'd love to be like you when i'm 49..good bless you <3 :)

I think she has good genes but I still think she for sure had botox.

Good genes or good docs?......I think the editors at TMZ either need to add a 3rd category such as, excessive hiding behind make-up. If they will not add that category and want us readers to answer it honestly, at least show us comparable photos of the stars that weren't taken on Halloween.....Truth! Make-up makes every woman look a lot younger and better but, if we were to see these stars up close and without all the cover up, our thoughts on how young they look, would change.
Take a look what I mean.

Vanessa looks great FOR HE AGE. No one has and ever will be able to run from mother nature.

Vanessa's definitely had work done. However, she actually looks good unlike many others who have gone under the knife or had injections. This is one of a few examples of what good cosmetic surgery can do.

Fillers, fraxel lasers, tca peels and botox have been around for years now. Unlike Cher and Dolly Parton, Vanessa's generation may have avoided the scalpel due to the many alternatives around. She certainly looks stunning. Poor Janice ****inson shoulda, coulda waited......
