* Averted with Mui in ''ShaolinSoccer'', she starts off as rather plain with acne and when she tries to doll herself up she looks even worse.

* Averted with Mui in ''ShaolinSoccer'', she starts off as rather plain with acne and when she tries to doll herself up she looks even worse. She's at her most attractive when she shaves her head to pass herself off as a boy, and it's her martial arts/goalie skills that ultimately win over the male lead.

* Inverted by Creator/MichelleRodriguez in whatever movie she does; the dirtier she gets, the hotter she is.

* ''Fanfic/ACrownOfStars'': Female and male example. Hikari usually wears plain, ordinary clothes and her hair is braided in GirlishPigtails; her boyfriend Touji also dresses very plainly. In chapter 40 both dress for a party and Toji looks good, whereas Hikari looks stunning.
-->''The Eva Pilots’ former classmates joined the group. Asuka blinked in surprise. Suzuhara was wearing a dark green Imperial Army cadet’s uniform just like Shinji, but had just a single row of three ribbons on his. ‘A Purple Heart, 2015 Angel War Campaign ribbon, and the Eva Pilot’s Badge. Well, I guess he gets all three from his one technical mission,’ Asuka noted. But it was her friend Hikari who was the stunner. Her habitual pig-tails and student uniform look was gone, replaced with an elegant black cheongsam with a dragon coiled around her body picked out in silver embroidery, and her hair was now styled into a slightly longer than shoulder length cut with a fringe above her eyes, set off by thin lighter brown highlights throughout. “Wow, Hikari. You look good. And Suzuhara almost looks like a civilized person worthy of hanging out with you, instead of an overgrown monkey in a track suit.”''

Mahanon is extremely amused to watch his co-Inquisitor Victoria being fitted for a dress while also discussing tactics for a party and Toji looks good, whereas Hikari looks stunning.

* Jackie Jakobs in ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover provides an InUniverse example of this trope. She was pulled off [[ParentalAbandonment the]] [[StreetUrchin streets]] by Mad Moxxi, earning room and board by slinging drinks in one of Moxxi's many bars. Naturally, this required cleaning Jackie up from her previous appearance.

** In the same episode, Buffy attempts to get Willow to do the whole "coming down the staircase" thing to impress Xander, albeit dressed as a hot goth rather than a fairytale princess. However, Willow backs out and chooses a traditional BedsheetGhost costume. At the end of the episode when Willow in ally works up the orange to show the outfit, the dressed-up look has the desired knock-out effect - not on Xander, but on imminent love interest, Oz who spots her from his truck (in fact Oz catching sight of Willow in unusual outfits and being intrigued by her is something of a running joke in the run-up to their actual meeting)

* ''Series/PeeWeesPlayhouse'': Reba the Mail Lady is rarely seen out of her postal uniform. There have been at least two exceptions, however. First, she dresses up nicely in "Party" (Pee-wee [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] that he has hardly ever seen her out of uniform). But that's nothing compared to the second time she dressed up: in "Rebarella", in preparation for her date with Derek, Miss Yvonne gives her a beauty makeover so that she a lot more like Yvonne herself! [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-awUSK83e5Y When Pee-wee first sees Reba's new look, he is appropriately agape with amazement.]]
