** As of TheMovie, [[spoiler: [[EvilCostumeSwitch Homura's devil outfit]]]] has gotten this reaction from [[BrokenBase some fans]] who feel it's [[spoiler: too {{Stripperific}}, in contrast to her usual modesty, and thus feels out-of-character.]] It doesn't help that [[spoiler: Homura's FaceHeelTurn also felt like CharacterDerailment to many viewers.]] Naturally, the film (or at least the ending) got hit with FanonDiscontinuity.

* The greatest debate surrounding the ''Series/WonderWoman'' TV show is whether Lynda Carter is hotter as Wonder Woman or Diana Prince. There's really no correct answer here.

* The majority of Music/MariahCarey fans feel she was far more beautiful before her numerous plastic surgeries. And since she has also been bleaching and straightening her naturally-dark, naturally-curly hair since the 90's, she has been accused of trying to [[ButNotTooBlack erase her biracial features]] in favor of looking like a generic white blonde.

* The majority of Music/MariahCarey fans feel she was far more beautiful before her numerous plastic surgeries. And since she has also been bleaching and straightening her naturally-dark, naturally-curly hair since the late 90's, she has been accused of trying to [[ButNotTooBlack erase her biracial features]] in favor of looking like a generic white blonde.



* Music/LilKim somehow managed to go from "90's Sex Symbol" to "Japanese Sex Bot" with her plastic surgeries. Just compare the photo on her TV Tropes page to...[[http://www.gettyimages.com/event/marc-jacobs-fall-2017-show-arrivals-700002903?esource=SEO_GIS_CDN_Redirect#rapper-lil-kim-attends-the-marc-jacobs-fall-2017-show-at-park-avenue-picture-id635664808 this]]. What's worse is that her onslaught of alterations came ''after'' a time period in the 2000's where she had decided to lay off the colorful wigs and {{stripperiffic}} outfits she was known for in the 90's in favor of a relatively subdued appearance.

And since she has also been bleaching and straightening her naturally-dark, naturally-curly hair since the mid-90's, she has been accused of trying to [[ButNotTooBlack erase her biracial features]] in favor of looking like a generic white blonde.

* WWE Diva Aksana made the unwise decision to go from [[http://onlineworldofwrestling.com/pictures/a/aksana/04.jpg blonde]] to [[http://aksana-daily.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=138&pid=7577#top_display_media brunette]]. This is a polarizing one, however, as just as many prefer her with dark hair as they do with blonde.

* One episode of Seinfeld revolved around the title character's barber giving him a boring, Beaver-Cleaver haircut, when he wants a hip 90's era coif. Looking back, the humor is inverted as Seinfeld has a normal haircut that you would find in any boardroom or even movie stars these days, while his friend's "best haircut I've ever had" looks dated and ridiculous.

* Sometimes people find the women on ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' to be more attractive while stranded on the island than when they're dolled up for the reunion show (unless they wear FetishFuel stuff, that is, like Kelly Wiggelsworth's skin tight strapless leather minidress).

* One of TV's most controversial Unnecessary Makeovers occurred in ''{{Felicity}}'', when the title character cut off her [[http://www.glamour.com/images/beauty/2009/04/0427-keri-russell-breakover_li.jpg signature mop of brass-blonde curls]]. This might more accurately be called a Marine Corps Makeover, since she was sheared like a sheep, with a pixie cut that felt rather unsuited for her. The new hairstyle and accompanying wardrobe change (from sweatery to kicky) mirrored the production team's intent to morph the show into something different, including a jarring change from a moody, introspective opening theme to an upbeat pop song. All done in the name of ratings, the fan reaction was mixed at best, with many viewers outraged and disappointed.
