* Marie from ''Theatre/PerfectPie'', who goes from a smelly, scrawny girl to a beautiful young lady after Patsy helps her dress up for the prom. The stage directions even say ''We can see the beautiful woman she will become''.

* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'': This trope is parodied in the episode ''Helga's Makeover'', in which the normally tomboyish Helga subjects herself to a girly makeover using tips from a teen magazine in order to join an all-girls' slumber party. [[http://ha-rewatch.livejournal.com/3290.html?thread=87514 The result]] falls straight into the UncannyValley, especially because, as she herself points out, they're only nine years old.

Also, in ''Arnold's Valentine'', she tries to disguise herself as a French girl, which ends with her sporting a literal poodle hairdo that looks as ridiculous as it sounds. Ironically, when her hair gets messed up, she actually does end up looking quite pretty, and there are other instances, such as ''Helga's Boyfriend'', in which she can pull off genuinely good looks.

* Loki's God of Stories incarnation was described in universe as ''scruffy'', this doesn't mean they can't rock the fashionable business woman or SharpDressedMan look when they need to, like when they're trying to [[ComicBook/VoteLoki run for president]].

* ''Series/HotelHell'': Karan of the Town's Inn, after receiving a makeover, looks decades younger. Not only that, but she also becomes much more confident and assertive.

* ''Film/LeonTheProfessional''. [[FilleFatale 12-year old Mathilda]] usually dresses in BareYourMidriff outfits, but she changes into a beautiful pink dress after Leon rescues her from the middle of DEA Headquarters. Then she starts talking about the importance of [[RescueSex losing your virginity]] with [[RescueRomance someone you love]], giving Leon a serious OhCrap moment.
* A gender-inverted example in ''[[Film/{{Underworld1927}} Underworld (1927)]]'', where Rolls Royce, once he combs his hair, shaves, and puts on a nice suit, is barely even recognizable as the hobo from before.

** A more straight example: Amy typically wears rather dowdy clothing with a long skirt and shapeless sweaters (along with Mayim Bialik's self-described "ethnic" looks), but in part due to Penny's influence she sometimes manages to dress up for special occasions and catch others off-guard with how well she turns out. Fans also noticed how attractive she became in the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Nurse Chapel]] costume while [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNsqHtzxY1o "Playing Doctor" with Sheldon]] ''Franchise/StarTrek''-style. She also wasn't bad looking as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDdrnacKumg Snow White either when the girls hit Disneyland]].
