* Laney Boggs from the [[{{The90s}} teen movie]] ''ShesAllThat''. In this case it happens just before she's about to go to a party - overlapping with BeautifulAllAlong. When she goes to the prom later in the movie, it doesn't happen a second time (though she does still look nice).

* In the 2008 Japanese film ''[[{{Zatoichi}} Ichi]]'', hapless samurai Toma meets the title character -- a blind swordswoman -- when she is in a ''goze'''s customary rags. When she's called to play for the local ''yakuza'' boss to celebrate Toma's hiring as a bodyguard, though, he is visibly stunned by how she looks in a ''kimono''.

Added DiffLines:

* Many premade sims from TheSims3 start out in rather unflattering clothes and hairstyles, and are considered fugly and dorky-looking, but actually are just in need of a makeover. Susan and Boyd Wainwright are one of the biggest examples of this.

* Anna from ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' has come close to {{yandere}} status in her relations with Yuma, and a rare female case of SchoolyardBullyAllGrownUp. Her tomboyish nature is even more evident in the original Japanese, where she uses "ore" (俺) when referring to herself (this is a pronoun that is predominantly used by males and very seldom used by females). Except at her mentor's wedding, that is. The flashback shows her in a nice white dress, and she pulls off the look quite well.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' does this with Commander Shepard during Kasumi's DLC quest, particularly if female: she gets a LittleBlackDress and heels, the only even ''remotely'' feminine attire female Shepard ever wears. However, Kasumi is the only person to comment on it, and that's just because she's the one who picked it out.

* Faris from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'' appears in a dress either once or twice in the entirety.
* Battle-hardened former soldier Celes Chere from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' reluctantly dresses as opera singer Maria for plot furthering purposes, causing Locke to blush red and ask "have you always been this pretty?"
** [[WildChild Gau]] provides a rare male example, when he's given a makeover courtesy of the rest of the party. He ends up coming out looking like someone straight out of the Opera House (where the above example takes place, mind), and a CloudCuckoolander stops being crazy enough to compliment his appearance (literally the only time in the game the man manages to say something that isn't completely insane). This was roughly the plan, since said nutjob happens to be [[spoiler:Gau's father, who went crazy after his wife died giving birth to Gau]].
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' as when we first see Rinoa she is all dolled up in her white dress at the party. Squall does take a fancy to her but they don't hit it off until she's wearing her normal clothes. [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xg2t0i_final-fantasy-the-garden-festival_shortfilms This]] Machinima adaptation plays it straight with all the girls getting dressed up for the Garden Festival.
* Subverted in ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' where Lyn tells Eliwood in their B support that she's very uncomfortable whenever she tries to clean up nicely in the Caelin court. Understandable, since Lyn has been raised in the plains of Sacae and only arrived in Caelin during the last year.
* [[spoiler:Midna]] uses this at the end of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''.
** On the HeroicMime, much to the amusement of the player. [[spoiler: "Am I so beautiful, that you have no words left?"]] We have been asking that ourselves for ages, dear princess. For ages.

** Said by the stage master to Lightning in ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'' practically verbatim when she appears in the PimpedOutDress she has to wear to proceed Yusnaan's story at that point. And Lightning was already freaking ''[[EvenTheGirlsWantHer hot]]'' [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer to begin with.]]

However, Kasumi is the only person to comment on it, and that's just because she's the one who picked it out.
** After Kasumi's loyalty mission, it's possible to select the dress as the outfit Shepherd wears on the Normandy. No one comments on it.
** 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.]]

** Ashley Williams' return in Mass Effect 3 came with [[FanservicePack a very stunning makeover]]. Of course, she was already attractive to begin with, but in the third game, many people were pleased.

* The non-canonical ''[[TheDukesOfHazzard The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning]]'', where Daisy is a mousy, nerdy, timid little girl until the day she puts on a pair of tight cutoff jeans, wearing a shirt tied to show her midriff and lets her hair down - and there you have a stunningly, ravishing, eye-candy hot-hot-hottie!

Despite the angels hating on him at first and didn't mind him dying from the villains when he changes into his {{Bishonen}} form he ends up having sex with [[LovableSexManiac Panty]].
