* 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]].

** Subverted in "Robot of Sherwood" where Clara puts on a stunning red velvet dress, [[ComplimentFishing commenting that it might be a bit much]]. Her last Doctor would have been speechless, but her [[FreakOut current Doctor]] couldn't care less.

* ''Film/{{Always}}'': Dorinda Durston is shown on a fire aviation airstrip, surrounded by pilots, and mechanics and sooty firemen. For her birthday, her boyfriend gets her some "girl clothes", an off-the-shoulder form-fitting white dress, that has the entire house lining up to dance with her.

** It's also something of a subversion: although the dress itself is quite feminine and appealing, her walk and run animations are the same as when she's wearing the in-universe equivalent of fatigues and combat boots, causing a fair bit of visual dissonance and ruining the effect somewhat. [[WatsonianVersusDoylist A Watsonian would say she's not used to moving elegantly in a dress and heels. A Doylist would say that EA wouldn't spare the budget for Bioware to create new animations for one short scene in an optional piece of DLC.]]

* ZigZagged in ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'' when first Abe, then Toots, then finally Cleo give Joan a makeover. The former two have horrible taste (Abe makes her over as a sexy nurse with a cyborg eye cribbed from a ''Fangoria'' cover) and are blind respectively, and make her look terrible. Cleo, who has excellent fashion sense, nevertheless makes her over to look like a cheap hooker, but Abe reacts as though she looked elegant and refined. Kennedy ''claims'' to like her better in her usual tomboy / PerkyGoth attire, but [[UnreliableExpositor he may have been lying to get in her pants]]. In the same episode, JFK makes over Gandhi in his own preppy style, which is a hit with the ladies in-universe, although to the audience he is better-looking later on in a white tux with white sneakers, although in that getup he strikes out.
