Here's a Sneak Peek at Maybelline's Upcoming Wonder Woman Makeup Collection!

Which Movie Makeover Is Your Favorite?

The fashionable Audrey Hepburn starred in quite a few ugly-duckling-becomes-swan films such as My Fair Lady and Funny Face, but she wasn't the only one to get the Pygmalion treatment. You've seen it before: Typically there's the "nerdy" girl who gets the full-makeover treatment, becomes popular, and learns some valuable life lessons. (Weirdly, nobody notices her beforehand — as though anyone would think Rachel Leigh Cook was all hideous underneath those geeky glasses in She's All That.) Which makeover do you love? Cast your vote and share your favorite movie makeover of all time.

No love for She's Out of Control?! That's by far my favourite makeover in any movie... Tony Danza for the win!

I completely agree with GenesisRocks. I love Audrey Hepburn, but I was shocked by the makeover in Princess Diaries. It was actually breathtaking for me.

There wasn't much of a "makeover montage," but I think "Devil Wears Prada" has to take the cake!

Besides Sabrina, I can't stand any of the movies listed above. Total Cinderella complex.

Well, since The Princess Diaries is in my top five favorite movies, I had to go with it.

Pretty Woman! I love the scene where he see's her long red hair for the first time. Princess Diaries comes in second just because she really was err, awkward looking beore her makeover. I could totally relate to the glasses and I had braces. My curly hair was kind of frizzy too, just not as much as hers. She looked great after the makeover though, and she has matured into a lovely woman in real life.

This is hard, I love all of these... but I think a three way tie for first for me is: My Fair Lady Pretty Woman Miss Congeniality

This is a really hard decision, but I went with Sabrina although I love those other movies too. I wish they they had more movies about geeky men transforming into handsome guys rather than women, but I guess women aren't as shallow ;) I'm kidding...kinda. I know there a few movies like that out there, but I think there are far more beauty & the beast storylines in films than the other way around.

Andy in the Devil wears Prada. I still love that movie.

I picked Miss Congeniality. I have always loved Pretty Woman but there is a lot of me in Sandra's character.

I would say The Devil Wears Prada, all those coats Andy wore were excellent.

I picked Princess Diaries because I was amazed by the transformation from clumsy schoolgirl to beautiful princess.

How could you not include "Gigi" starring Leslie Caron?! ;) I chose Princess Diaries because we all have our gawky-outside-with-a-princess-inside selves, but Gigi is still my favorite "classic". :)

"hen you end up with his older, cold hearted brother." Le Romantique! Linus is not cold-hearted, how can you say such a thing? He just needed a good woman to turn him around. I'm a sucker for Sabrina. The original and the remake.

Since everyone says I look like Sandra, I had to go with her. Her performance just made it perfect... it wasn't just a makeover on the outside, but a makeover on the inside too.

My Fair Lady will always be my first pick ... followed by Sabrina.

I love Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman... but Miss Congeniality is my favorite! Sandra Bullock is so adorable in the movie even before her tough-geek to tough-chic transformation!

Sabrina, definitely.
