It’s safe to say that Anne Hathaway wouldn’t be the A-list star she is now without her role in The Princess Diaries. How can you not love her transformation from hot mess to high royalty? The best part is the moment the hairdresser’s brush breaks off in her rat’s nest hair.

Most women love the “Big Mistake. Huge!” moment, when Julia Roberts gets to show off her new makeover to the snooty Rodeo Drive saleswomen. My personal favorite scene comes right before that, when Richard Gere gives her free reign with his credit card. Who wouldn’t consider prostitution for the same privilege?

The dorky duckling, played by Rachel Leigh Cook, becomes a sexy swan in She’s All That. I still think of her walking down the stairs in a red dress whenever I hear Sixpence None The Richer’s “Kiss Me.”

The Devil Wears Prada is yet another makeover movie starring Anne Hathaway. This time she plays the hopelessly frumpy Andy Sachs who gets an amazing new look after visiting the fashion closet. If only every job had such great perks!

Every time I get ready, the song “I Want To Be A Supermodel” secretly plays in my head. Not only does Tai (played by the late Brittany Murphy) get a great makeover in Clueless, but I also love the scene when we see Cher get ready for her big date with Christian.
If you haven’t seen The House Bunny, then you really should. A former Playboy bunny, played by Anna Faris, becomes in charge of making over an entire sorority of nobodies. The results are amazing and hilarious.

Maybe you don’t associate “makeover” with The Breakfast Club, but you really should. Remember when Claire (Molly Ringwald) gives Allison (Ally Sheedy) a pretty makeover? Turns out even the school freak becomes lust-worthy with the right mascara.

Nothing makes me laugh more than the Mean Girls scene when Lindsay Lohan’s character has to borrow a pink Polo from Damien in order to fit in with the cool girls. Soon after she got her more revealing makeover (read: cleavage-baring), boys everywhere started to become Lindsay fans in real life.

And, of course, I could never forget Miss Congeniality. We all knew how pretty Sandra Bullock was to begin with, but seeing the drastic makeover on screen was pretty fantastic.
