* ''Film/{{Sextette}}'', a Mae West vehicle from 1978, noticeably used this technique in all of her scenes to try and portray her as a cougary seductress (her current love interest was played by Timothy Dalton). Mae was now in her ''eighties'', and resembled a busty alien Pez dispenser. The soft-focus [[{{Squick}} didn't help.]]

* Pretty much all of ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'' is shot in a very harsh, very cold light, to drive home the concept of emotionless impersonality, except for [[Creator/ChristianBale John Preston's]] wife, who not only gets the gaussian treatment, but shots of her include actual colours, as opposed to the slightly desaturated/bleached out effect of Librium as a whole. There's even a sequence (as she's being arrested for sense-crime) in which she shares a shot with and kisses her husband as she's dragged away. Her side of the screen? Sparkly, glowy, soft-focus. His side? Cold, harsh, slightly desaturated hard focus. Even in the middle of the kiss.

* [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]] in ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted''. While Constantine is shown in a Guassian fashion during part of "I'll Get You What You Want," it's only because he is applying Vaseline to the camera lens!

** And to add on to that, Cloud ''himself'' later appears fully gaussianed in the sunlight.
** In ''[[Anime/FinalFantasyVIIAdventChildren Advent Children]]'', Cloud has visions of Aerith in a Gaussian Girl way (though he himself is also gaussianed there as well).

* Used with Tiffani-Amber Thiessen on ''Dinner at Tiffani's'' on the Cooking Channel to an almost absurd degree. The cuts between her and her guests make one wonder if the high-definition feed is cutting in and out.

* ''TopGear'''s Jeremy Clarkson attempted to create the romantic soft focus on a ''car'' by smearing vaseline on the camera lens. [[HilarityEnsues It didn't go well]].
* ''TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine'' seemed to use this in every episode.

* Used on ''TheMonkees'' when Mickey had to be disguised as a woman to fool some guy. Although the disguise was comically unconvincing to the viewers, the target male's first enraptured view of "her" was in obvious soft-focus.

* Lampshaded on an episode of ''Series/TheNanny.'' Fran qualifies to play on ''Jeopardy!'' and while backstage, Gracie tells her she looks pretty. Fran turns and says that here, looks don't matter, it's brains that count. [[HypocriticalHumor She then turns to the cameraman and tells him,]] "Hey you, I want the filter they used on [[Creator/ElizabethTaylor Liz]] for the White Diamonds commercial."

* [=RuPaul=] used this on ''herself'' on the first season of ''Series/RupaulsDragRace''. How bad was it? There were times where you couldn't make out her face at all; it would just be a blurry blob with eyes. By the 2nd season (which did did away with the effect), everyone on Creator/{{LOGO}}, even one of the contestants, was mocking her for it.
