Prepare for some beauty throwbacks.
From Mia Thermopolis’ hair change in Princess Diaries to Toula Portokalos learning the art of makeup in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, some of the most iconic movies of the ‘90s and early 2000s involve beauty transformation. Keep clicking to find eight of the best movie makeovers of all time.
Rihanna plays master hacker Nine Ball and is shown throughout the majority of the movie wearing a casual army jacket and jeans. That is until she arrives at the Met Gala in a bombshell red satin off-the-shoulder Zac Posen dress and a coordinating bold lip.
After finding out she’s a princess, Mia Thermopolis gets a full makeover by over-the-top Paolo. In the iconic movie scene (which has garnered almost 17 million views), Paolo and his techs pluck Thermopolis’ brows, straighten her super wavy hair, and apply glam daytime makeup.
In Clueless, Cher and Dionne give the new girl Tai, played by a young Brittany Murphy, a full Cali transformation. After a wardrobe refresh and some makeup, the high schooler went from stoner girl to social butterfly.
FBI Agent Gracie Hart requires a complete beauty change before the Miss United States pageant. She then walks out of her makeover (which involved everything from a teeth cleaning to full body waxing) only to immediately trip and fall in her heels (relatable).
In the last scene of Grease, Sandy Olsson trades in her high school good girl aesthetic for a rebellious appearance. She curls her straight strands, applies a bad girl red lip,(with matching heels), and swaps out her midi dresses for skin-tight leather pants.
