Powerful speeches, a PDA moment...so what else happened at the 2015 Black Girls Rock! show? Oh, just Will and Ashley chillin' out, maxin' and relaxin' all cool.

At the Saturday event, presenter Will Smith reunited with Tatyana Ali, who played his younger cousin on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The actress, now 36, posted on her Instagram page a photo of the heartwarming backstage reunion.

"Backstage @blackgirlsrock @mbib #imagineafuture #nofilter #fam #tatyanaali #willsmith #FRESHPRINCE," she wrote.

And did the 46-year-old actor pay tribute to his iconic '90s sitcom character with his outfit? Will wore a purple, indigo and black patterned jacket that brings to mind a certain iconic look his character sported on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air—his snazzy modification of his traditional private school uniform.

Will and Ali have reunited in the past, following the end of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air six-season run in 1996. In 2008, they were joined by fellow former co-star Alfonso Ribeiro , who played Ashley's nerdy brother Carlton, at the Los Angeles premiere of Seven Pounds.

Will has reunited with Ribeiro several times, including on screen. He even got the actor to teach his son Trey how to drive...which turned out to be not the greatest plan.

At the 2015 Black Girls Rock! event, Will gave a touching tribute...actually two (wink)...to his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, before presenting her with the Star Power Award.
