Heavy Metal Makeover

Girls in videos start out dressed conservatively but get tarted up by the end.

Name Space:
Page Type:
You've seen it in hundreds of music videos: A conservatively dressed, uptight girl is doing conservative, uptight things when the band and its would-be hit song enter her life. By the time we get to the guitar solo or dance song equivalent, though, she's obtained a short skirt, heavy eye makeup, black nail polish, and a push-up bra, and she's rocking out to the song.

What do you folks think? Trope-worthy? Already covered? Music videos have about worn the notion out, that's for sure, so I'm having a hard time imagining nobody's ever done this one, but I can't find it on the site.

    Oh yeah...I called it that because it seems most egregious in 80's hair metal videos, but I'm hardly married to that name.
