Defied: Alice does not change anything about her looks, no matter how frumpy they may be.
Discussed: "You know, Alice, if you put on some makeup, lost a couple of pounds, and put on a new outfit, you'd be hot!"
Conversed: "Alice isn't ugly! What kind of drugs are you on?! She looks like a regular Girl Next Door!"
Deconstructed: Alice feels a lot of pressure to look like the models and actresses in today's media, and has some serious body-image issues. May lead her to such things as eating disorders, excessive plastic surgery, spending money she does not have on trendy clothes, etc.
Reconstructed: Alice learns that she is not ugly, and goes out to face the world, average looks and all. She makes an effort to look nice and presentable, but does not go to extremes.
