Alice noticeably ages as the series goes on. Alice goes from a good-looking twenty-something to a slightly chubbier middle-aged woman to a wrinkly fifty-four old over the course of the series. Although she is still considered attractive among her age bracket, it is generally agreed that she was quite the looker when she was younger.
Subverted: Alice appears prettier, but that turns out to be her twin sister.
Double Subverted: Turns out Alice got prettier too.
Parodied: Every girl on the show except the lead is replaced by someone completely different.
Zig Zagged: ???
Averted: Alice leaves Hollywood Homely, and comes back looking exactly the same.
Enforced: "We need to make this character more appealing, especially in light of the changes of last season."
Lampshaded: "Wow! You look great, Alice! That trip away did you some good!"
Invoked: Alice, at the end of the season, wins a trip to a high-end medical spa.
Defied: Alice refuses to go, on the grounds that she (and everyone else) thinks that she looks good just as she is.
Discussed: "Does Alice look different to you? Like...prettier?"
Conversed: "Yeah...it's weird. She looks prettier, but still like herself."
