* In ''Film/{{Precious}}'': [[TheWoobie Precious Jones]] (an African-American FatGirl) has a horrible life in every aspect.

* In ''TheStainlessSteelRat'', Angelina began life as an extremely ugly child, and grew up hating the world around her. Too poor to afford the extensive surgery that could change her looks, and cursed with an extremely keen mind that allowed her to see the injustice of her life, the young girl turned to a life of murder and crime to get the funds she needed. Eventually the adult Angelina had surgery that transformed herself into a true beauty - on the outside; on the inside she had become as callous and psychotic as they come. After her capture by the Special Corps, the Corps' psychiatrists have attempted to remove her sociopathic tendencies. It mostly worked, although they sometimes show through, especially when her family is threatened or she thinks Jim is being unfaithful.

This trope comes into play when a character's quest for beauty - either achieving it or maintaining it - becomes their primary motivation or defining characteristic. For when it's a villain(ess)'s goal, see FairestOfThemAll.

FairestOfThemAll. A FashionModel may feel this because his/her job might genuinely be at risk otherwise.
