Bea wore her hair in a silver bouffant style when she picked up her Emmy for Maude.
She joined the party at the Tonys (she had won a statuette in 1966 playing Vera Charles in Mame) in a Victorian-inspired pompadour and choker.
The newly minted Golden Girls star sported a platinum coif and burgundy lipstick.
A Golden Globe for a Golden Girl: Arthur accepted her award in a chic blown-out pageboy cut.
