* ''BoysOverFlowers'': Rich jerk Tsukasa gets a crush on average girl Tsukushi and has her ''kidnapped'' for an impromptu makeover.

* ''BoysOverFlowers'': ''Manga/HanaYoriDango'': Rich jerk Tsukasa gets a crush on average girl Tsukushi and has her ''kidnapped'' for an impromptu makeover.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:
* ''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.

Moved animated films to a seperate folder.
* 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.

Added namespaces.
* In Ovid's ''TheMetamorphoses'', Apollo falls for the nymph Daphne, who spends all her time running around in the woods, sees her loose hair, and immediately thinks, "What if it were pinned up?"

* 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".

* Therese does this to Anthony in ''ForBetterOrForWorse''. Fans were meant to hate Therese for that among other things. There are [[CreatorsPet reasons]] people might side with Therese instead.

* 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.

This backfires on her when he goes abroad and comes back witty and fashionable, but also (seemingly) affected and heartless, and she realizes she liked him better before.

--->'''Haruka''': Honestly, I've thought this for a while now, but your casual clothes are so lame! --->'''Yuu''': But this is normal over in America... --->'''Haruka''': Look, foreigners can get away with a T-shirt and jeans because they have the body for it, but Japanese people '''can't'''! --->'''Yuu''': Ah... but... --->'''Haruka''': COME ON, HURRY UP AND GET CHANGED!

That she is a CosplayOtakuGirl with a mind of a dirty old man means that these outfits are {{fanservice}}-y as hell--but the Knights don't even realize that: to them, their new outfits are a symbol of the unexpected kindness their master deigned to show them, so Vita, at the very least, grows [[BerserkButton violently protective of hers]]. Incidentally, this act also serves as a catalyst for the Knights' gradual {{defrosting|TheIceQueen}}.

IWantMyBelovedToBeFashionable is where falling in love kicks off a burning desire to change the beloved ([[WellIntentionedExtremist for the better!]]), usually by making them stand up straight and color-coordinate their wardrobe. It sometimes occurs as a result of UnderdressedForTheOccasion. TruthInTelevision.

IWantMyBelovedToBeFashionable is where falling in love kicks off a burning desire to change the beloved ([[WellIntentionedExtremist for the better!]]), usually by making them stand up straight and color-coordinate their wardrobe. It sometimes occurs as a result of UnderdressedForTheOccasion.UnderdressedForTheOccasion, and the subsequent embarrassment. TruthInTelevision. \n The changer genuinely wants the best for their beloved, and this can have practical, important benefits -- for instance, a rich young lady wants to give her [[RichSuitorPoorSuitor poor boyfriend]] a wardrobe upgrade so that her [[ParentalMarriageVeto disapproving parents]] will see the same fine young man that ''she'' does. However, it may easily backfire if the change-ee feels that their sweetheart is revealing new depths of shallowness, and an unwillingness to accept the change-ee for who they are -- not to mention the sticker shock!
