If you haven't been on social media for a while or just simply haven't noticed, there is a new trend that many people are participating in called the #10YearChallenge. Yes, some very famous faces have also taken part, which means you need to see these celebrity 10-year challenge photos, stat. What makes most of the following pictures even more captivating is that you won't be able to tell which photo is from what year.

Basically, the new viral craze has social media users uploading side-by-side images of themselves from 2009 and 2019. It's just a fun way to do a 10-year comparison and to see exactly how much you may or may not have changed over the past decade. The pictures below just go to show you age is nothing but a number and no one should ever let how old they are define them.

Aging isn't a bad thing. Changing physically, emotionally, mentally, and in all areas of life can be truly beautiful. Not everyone is lucky enough to grow old, so when a birthday comes along, embrace it.

Some might find fault with this challenge, especially in the case of using it to call out someone over whether or not they've aged gracefully or not. Of course, that isn't OK. The challenge should be used positively and to uplift others.

The following celebrities are clearly comfortable and confident enough in themselves to share how they've grown over the past 10 years, which should be applauded. Like Bravo captioned a series of Real Housewives #10YearChallenge photos, "Like a fine wine, we just get better with time." (FYI, this was also Ramona Singer's tagline from Real Housewives of New York City Season 8.)
