* The remake of ''Film/TheHillsHaveEyes'', when the nerdy pacifist protagonist shed a few layers of clothing, [[TookALevelInBadass broke out the weaponry]], and stomped off to avenge his family and cause some serious mutant pain.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Katara begins the series as the TeamMom, dressed practically (she ''is'' from the South Pole), but as the series progresses and the seasons/latitude/climates change, she literally lets down her hair, and we get occasional shots of her in underwear or [[BareYourMidriff midriff-baring outfits]]. Her regular Water Tribe outfits (the clothes she wears most often) are still very practical, and she bares a lot more skin in the Fire Nation islands, which are mostly tropical and volcanic.
** Aang and Sokka, too. [[http://piandao.org/screenshots/water/water9/water9-227.jpg First]] [[http://piandao.org/screenshots/water/water9/water9-236.jpg season]], and [[http://piandao.org/screenshots/fire/fire10/fire10-928.jpg third]] [[http://piandao.org/screenshots/fire/fire18/fire18-583.jpg season.]]

* ''Film/TheSaint'': Emma is a shy, nervous nuclear physicist who is brilliant enough to have invented Cold Fusion. She meets Simon in one of his aliases, and it's LoveAtFirstSight. Once she gets over being astonished that a man like him would notice her, she's so worked up she has to take her heart medication before they go to bed. But he betrays her. Incensed, Emma throws off the meek mouse persona and tracks him down. Along the way, they're pursued by the Russian Mafia, and by the end of the movie, she can do a 100 yard dash, and doesn't need her pills anymore.

* ''Film/FantasticFour'': Sue Storm, a.k.a. the Invisible Woman. She was acknowledged as extremely beautiful from the very beginning but she was the "hair in a bun, glasses on the face" science girl. Starting from the moment they get back to Earth, she starts wearing the hair down and ditches the glasses. The movie progresses through her reconciling with Reed, and by the end of the movie they're an AdventureDuo plus two. By the sequel, she's [[TookALevelInBadass way more skilled with her powers]] and takes no crap, even from Reed.

* ''Film/{{The Mummy|Trilogy}}'': Evy is a dressed down HotLibrarian as the movie begins. She's prim, easily offended, and rather stiff, but brainy. But because she's the object of desire for the CardCarryingVillain, of course she has to be dressed up properly to be a VirginSacrifice (or the closest thing to it). Along comes Rick, and along the way they fall in love. By the end of the movie, she's completely calm about all the insanity she's encountered and [[RescueRomance madly in love with her rescuer]]. By the sequel, she's [[TookALevelInBadass leveled up]], and she and Rick are a BattleCouple, which carries over into the AnimatedAdaptation. Not only that, but she is a MamaBear as well.

* Ellie Sawyer of ''MyScienceProject'' starts out as a dowdy, glasses-adorned nerd, eventually losing her hairpins and glasses in the midst of the action. In the end, though, she's still a nerd -- just a more attractive one.

* Somewhat of an inversion with Annie from ''TheInvisible''. She starts out brutal, violent, and dressed in guys' clothes, no to mention the leader of the school bullies. As she realizes the consequences of her violent life, her bad choices, and the fact that Nick was more like her than she gave him credit for, she feminizes -- beginning to wear her hair down, and her clothing less gender neutral.

* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', Wendy gets this when the apocalypse occurs, switching from her usual green flannel shirt to a white tank top, although pieces of her old flannel shirt are still visible, most notably on her headband.

Sometimes she's secretly, unknowingly, the HotLibrarian, or a case of [[SheIsAllGrownUp late blooming gorgeous]]. Sometimes they're gorgeous but shy, mild-mannered, aloof or standoffish because they have to work twice as hard to be [[YouGoGirl thought of as half as good in a male-dominated field]]; and being sexy equals not being taken seriously; and [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon being aggressive is considered a negative trait for a female]] -- at least, in this part of the story. Less frequently, she's a teenager going through this, which results in ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe at some point during the transformation.
