* Konoka in ''MahouSenseiNegima'' sometimes likes to do this to Setsuna. Pretty much the girls's entire wardrobe was selected by Konoka (she normally just [[SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack likes her school uniform]]).

* In ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'', Tamaki (and the twins) constantly attempt to get [[DeadpanSnarker Haruhi]] into pretty dresses. This is a rather odd example, since Haruhi is hardly unattractive... but [[{{Bifauxnen}} hardly attractive in the manner of most girls]].
* In ''PokemonSpecial'', Ruby tailors one of his spare outfits into one for Sapphire as a thank you gift for her for saving his life, not to mention that he's somewhat horrified that she normally wears a leaf bikini.
* ''Manga/{{Cardcaptor Sakura}}'': While Sakura is by no means 'unattractive' (and only 10 years old), her [[SchoolgirlLesbians crushing]] best friend Tomoyo still feels the urge to stuff her into a new (lovingly hand-made) costume every episode and record her running around in it. Then re-watch the recordings. For hours. And she's visibly upset when she misses an opportunity to make Sakura try out a new outfit.
* George and Yukari's relationship in ParadiseKiss is all about this; he falls for her partly because she's exactly the kind of girl he wants to design clothes for.

* ''Series/TheInbetweeners'' boasts a minor example; Simon's brief girlfriend Tara sees him not just as a boyfriend, but a fashion project. During a trip to the local shopping centre, she dresses him up in a ridiculous (yet somehow still fashionable) outfit.

* One ''ElfQuest: New Blood'' story has Ahnshen, the weaver and tailor of the Sun Folk, wanting to give Moonshade a makeover. It's tied up with his idea that she should be a "gentle flower" rather than a "savage and frightening" huntress. Seeing her all dolled up is what convinces him he was wrong.

* The KoreanSeries ''BoysBeforeFlowers'' shows us LonelyRichKid Jun Pyo giving OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Jan Di a complete wardrobe change for a weekend tropical trip.
* The RealityTV series ''ExtremeMakeover'' is completely made of this trope, as is ''HowDoILook''. The series ''AmbushMakeover'' is more like "I want random strangers on the street to be fashionable".

* In Creator/GeorgetteHeyer's ''Literature/PowderAndPatch'', the heroine rejects her childhood sweetheart because he isn't fashionable enough. This backfires on her when he goes abroad and comes back witty and fashionable, and she realizes she liked him better before.
