Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A character who has been presented to the audience as not particularly attractive cleans up, puts on nice clothes (or fancy clothes) and is suddenly stunningly attractive.
If they're female, she may originally be dowdy, unfashionable, a Tomboy or Wrench Wench, or simply not particularly attentive to her appearance. If they're a male character, he may be slovenly or sloppy. Either gender may be impoverished and therefore shabby in their normal appearance.
For non-native English speakers (or anyone who's confused), the trope name refers to the subject cleaning herself nicely — all prettied up for admiration.
Every adaptation of "Cinderella" ever has this moment as the abused scullery maid arrives at the ball with her Fairy Godmother powered ballgown. Possibly the Trope Maker.
Wrench Wenches are likely to have at least one scene like this. Tomboys and The Lad-ette also often have a moment like this — often tagged with a "Hey, I guess you really are a girl." This happens to the Undercover Model for work-related reasons.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })(The trope overlaps with Beautiful All Along if it requires a permanent change in her attitude, but is more distinct if it only needs clothes, grooming and opportunity. A common sign of this trope being separate is if she (or he) goes back to the old look and the Love Interest doesn't mind at all.)
Sister Trope to Beautiful All Along, Princess for a Day, Hollywood Homely and Bathe Her and Bring Her to Me. Occasionally involves a Pimped-Out Dress, but regular clothing will do. May be part of a Rags to Royalty situation. Sometimes overlaps with She Is All Grown Up. Contrast Unkempt Beauty, where she doesn't need to be cleaned up to look nice. Be aware of the Unnecessary Makeover where this trope doesn't work. See Tarnishing Their Own Beauty for the deliberate inversion.

Midna uses this at the end of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on the Heroic Mime, much to the amusement of the player. "Am I so beautiful, that you have no words left?" We have been asking that ourselves for ages, dear princess. For ages.

In the Belgariad and its sequels, it's revealed that the regal, strikingly beautiful Polgara spent her life up to age sixteen being a filthy wreck with tangled hair, peeling skin (she doesn't tan well) and scabby knees. When her twin sister was getting married, Polgara decided to clean herself up and discovered that she was quite a looker once she'd had a bath and combed her hair straight. After the wedding, Polgara went back to live with her father Belgarath, who complained that after being aggressively indifferent to her appearance, she went off the the other end of the scale, bathing every day, and brushed her hair to the point that on a cold day she'd build up a sizable static charge, which would go off when she touched anything even remotely metallic.

Madoka, of Puella Magi Madoka Magica, is considered to be fairly plain (by the show's standard, anyway). Upon her Abstract Apotheosis, she looks properly majestic (though the hair and wings certainly help).

Used in a somewhat weird way in the seventh Detective Conan movie. When Kazuha and Heiji were little, they visited Kazuha's family in Kyoto. Little Heiji ran off to a temple, and while waiting for him little Kazuha was dolled up in a kimono and got her hair done by her relatives. Little Heiji then saw her playing under the Cherry Blossoms, but didn't recognize her... and "that girl from Kyoto" remained in his memory as "his First Love". Since the movie had a subplot in which Heiji was searching for the anonymous girl he once liked, it means Kazuha was jealous of... her dolled up little girl self. And Heiji didn't find out until the end of the movie, when he heard Kazuha sing a song that the "girl from Kyoto" was singing when he saw her.
Played straight when Conan sees Ran in a sweet lolita pink dress. He was getting ready to snark at her and Sonoko for putting on such clothes while in a case, but when he actually sees Ran he's completely starstruck, complete with Luminescent Blush.

Anna from Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL has come close to yandere status in her relations with Yuma, and a rare female case of Schoolyard Bully All Grown Up. Her tomboyish nature is even more evident in the original Japanese, where she uses "ore" (俺) when referring to herself (this is a pronoun that is predominantly used by males and very seldom used by females). Except at her mentor's wedding, that is. The flashback shows her in a nice white dress, and she pulls off the look quite well.

Ranma ½:
Akane gets Ranma but good twice, at the start and conclusion of the final story arc, when he sees her in a wedding kimono (first instance) and then in a Western-style wedding dress. Of course, she dresses up in fancy dresses whenever she can and usually does look pretty good, it's just that those two are the most prominent.
Also Ukyō in the Episode "Ukyō's Skirt, The Great Girly-Girl Gambit". Ukyō looks so stunning in a Fūrinkan girl's uniform that Kunō promptly decides to start courting her as well as Akane and "the pigtailed girl". Even Ranma only recognizes her because she's still carrying her giant spatula. Unfortunately for her, while all of the other guys at school wanted to date her, Ranma still didn't seem to get that what she wanted was to try and give their relationship a boost. Between that, and the fact it ended up in a contest where Ranma got beaten up by all of the other guys, she stopped wearing it out of remorse. She does occasionally dress up in more feminine garb, though the series has something of a Limited Wardrobe for her. She only wears the girl's uniform one other time, in her final appearance, and lampshades it in the original Japanese.
A male example occurs with Ranma, in a brief storyline in which Kodachi brings him as her date, to be compared to her rival's date. When said rival sees Ranma for the first time, he'd just been run over by a herd of cows and hardly looked his best. When he shows up at the actual date, cleaned up and looking awesome in a suit, the rival actually is impressed.
In the same arc, Akane becomes very offended when the rival insults Ranma. So, she helps make him look handsome for the date and mentally lampshades this trope while doing it.

Pee-wee's Playhouse: Reba the Mail Lady is rarely seen out of her postal uniform. There have been at least two exceptions, however. First, she dresses up nicely in "Party" (Pee-wee lampshades that he has hardly ever seen her out of uniform). But that's nothing compared to the second time she dressed up: in "Rebarella", in preparation for her date with Derek, Miss Yvonne gives her a beauty makeover so that she a lot more like Yvonne herself! When Pee-wee first sees Reba's new look, he is appropriately agape with amazement.

Yo soy Betty, la fea:
This is one of the premises of this Colombian telenovela. Although she doesn't get "princess pretty" at the end, her appearance definitely improves during the series.

In Street Fighter Alpha, Cody was a prisoner due to becoming a fight-happy nihilist after the events of Final Fight. By Street Fighter V, however, Cody turned his life around and improved himself, eventually succeeding Mike Haggar as mayor of Metro City and trading in his striped uniform and handcuffs for a slick suit and a haircut.

Arrow: The first few times Felicity removes her glasses and lets her hair down, it's presented this way Especially the first time when she goes from office work clothes with a ponytail to an evening dress with curls, and her crime-fighting partners Oliver and Diggle take a good few seconds to recognise her. Not that she wasn't attractive before, so "cleaning up" becomes a common occurrence from the second season onward.
Also shows up briefly with Sin, normally an androgynous Tomboy in gender neutral leather clothes. To pose as a hooker (it's a long story), she dons a figure-hugging short skirt and heels (borrowed from Thea, no less) that show off her legs.

Bones: Happens (sort of) when the title character descends the stairs in an awful bridesmaid's dress. Her main love interest says she looks "nice", until Cam helps her fix the dress to be prettier. He then tells her that she looks "gorgeous" to which she simply complains "I thought you said I looked nice before!" Then in the Halloween-themed episode "The Mummy In The Maze", Booth has a similar reaction to seeing Bones in a Wonder Woman costume.

Subverted horrifically in Rebecca, wherein the protagonist dreams of this exact scene happening at the costume ball; she even orders a Pimped-Out Dress with fitting wig, has her servant check if all the guests have arrived and has the band play a sting so she can have her big Moment of Awesome. This plan fails, of course, when it turns out her husband's former wife wore this exact costume the year before; that husband then yells at her to get changed and our heroine's perfect moment is ruined.

Wonder Girl Cassie Sandsmark's best friend George is not an unattractive teen usually, but she usually goes out of her way to appear androgynous and wears unflattering baggy clothing and her hair in a loose flat top which means, with the addition of her nickname, she often comes across as a boy. On the occasions she decides to cosplay she chooses much more feminine outfits, does her hair different and wears makeup which makes her appear much more stereotypically attractive.

Castle:
Fair Cop Kate Beckett is told this explicitly using the trope name on at least two occasions: the high society fundraiser in "Home Is Where The Heart Stops" where she and Castle go undercover and the book launch of Heat Wave in "When The Bough Breaks". They're not wrong, either. The first time is a 'nervous and shy' example because she's wearing an amazingly expensive and beautiful dress that Castle has bought for her; the second time, everyone assumes she's a character actor hired to play 'Nikki', the character based on her.
Also, in "A Death in the Family", Alexis in her prom dress combines this with a She Is All Grown Up moment for her father.

Wings: In one early episode, Helen decides to wear a sexy dress to a cello audition. When she doesn't get the job, she isn't sure whether it was because her cello playing wasn't good enough, or she wasn't sexy in the dress. She shows Joe what she looks like in the dress, and after noting his reaction, she promptly hurries off to practice her cello some more.

The beginning of the song "Beauty and the Beast" in Disney's Beauty and the Beast. In a variation, both Belle and Beast are cleaning up nicely. Belle's part in it is downplayed (since we've seen her in fancy gowns before) and the focus is on the Beast cleaning up for her.

Black Canary: In JLA: Year One, this is presented as how Dinah used to maintain a Secret Identity; "Black Canary" was seen as something of a superhero sex symbol by the general public because of the blonde hair, fishnets, and leather leotard, but "Dinah Lance" had short black hair and dressed in a more homely and tomboyish fashion. Dinah laments being dateless because she's straight-up invisible to guys who are openly lusting after Black Canary from seeing her on the news. Eventually she realises that "Black Canary" is who she really is inside, and she should embrace it, casting her later abandoning of her secret identity as something of a coming of age sort of thing.

Played with in Some Kind of Wonderful. Tomboy Watts has spent the entire movie dressed in raggedy old hand-me-down men's clothes. In the last act, when she agrees to chauffeur her best friend (and crush) Keith and his crush, Amanda, around on their date, she decides to get dressed up. The effect is striking, and she's much more attractive—but she's not wearing a dress. Instead, she's dolled up in a male chauffeur's uniform. Keith doesn't seem to mind.

The Simpsons has Lisa, in "Lisa the Beauty Queen" convinced that she's ugly. In an attempt to rectify this, Homer enters her in a beauty pageant. Lisa competes, and wins second place. Bart more or less tells her in this episode that she is quite pretty.
Bart is also a bit overcome when he sees her in her wedding finery, in the future-based episode about marrying a boy she meets in college. He tells her that seeing her makes him want to get married for a third time.

The entire point of the movie Miss Congeniality. The scene where Gracie originally walks out of the hangar, in a tight short knit dress with her hair up and makeup on, has all of her fellow FBI agents standing there with their jaws dropping. Then she stumbles on her heels and falls on her face immediately afterwards.

In Titanic (1997) Rose DeWitt Bukater descends the grand staircase of the RMS Titanic, drawing the obligatory wide-eyed expression from Jack Dawson. However, most of their fellow passengers' comments are focused on the fact it's Jack who cleans up nicely. Molly even says "You shine up like a new penny!" This is partly due to the fact that Rose was wearing a rather pretty dress to dinner the night before, and seeing her dressed up would be a frequent event.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: Huckleberry Finn, despite the widow's noble efforts, does not clean up nicely. In his own words: 'The widder's good to me, and friendly; but I can't stand them ways. She makes me get up just at the same time every morning; she makes me wash, they comb me all to thunder; she won't let me sleep in the woodshed; I got to wear them blamed clothes that just smothers me, Tom; they don't seem to any air git through 'em, somehow; and they're so rotten nice that I can't set down, nor lay down, nor roll around anywher's.'

The Mummy (1999):
Gender-inverted after Rick O'Connell is rescued from the gallows. His shiny reappearance is nicely timed to Evelyn's rant about what a filthy, rude, complete scoundrel he is.
Evie herself gets a moment like this; before they go on their expedition, we are used to seeing her in dowdy and plain librarian's clothes; but after they escape from the ship, Evie appears wearing an Bedouin-inspired black dress and veil. It certainly made Rick's eyes widen.

iCarly: The focus of the episode "iMake Sam Girlier", both played straight and subverted. Sam is feeling down about her tomboy/ladette image and decides to get a Girliness Upgrade to impress a boy she likes named Pete. She looks quite good in her more feminine outfit, prompting an audience reaction, and even though Pete is quite smitten with her new look, he reveals that he actually liked her tough girl image better. However, there have been other times in the series, before and after this episode, that Sam has put a dress on, and she looks quite good in them.

Jackie Jakobs in Origins, a Mass Effect/Star Wars/Borderlands/Halo Massive Multiplayer Crossover, provides an In-Universe example of this trope. She was pulled off the streets by Mad Moxxi, earning room and board by slinging drinks in one of Moxxi's many bars. Naturally, this required cleaning Jackie up from her previous appearance.

Harry Potter
There's the Yule Ball example mentioned under Film, above, but Hermione also gets a much straighter example in the seventh book. Ron's jaw drops and he says "wow" when he sees her dressed up in a lilac dress for Bill's wedding. Hermione then jokes that his crabby Aunt Muriel said she had "bad posture and skinny ankles".
Madam Maxime is also described in very flattering terms when it comes to her choice of dress at the Yule Ball.
Hogwarts' resident Cloudcuckoolander Luna Lovegood, who is not particularly regarded for her looks, is described as pretty when she dresses up for formal occasions.

Setsuna also cleaned up nicely in that same ball. Seeing him in a black suit was a very, very nice surprise.

Subverted in Cwen's Quest when the main character and resident "Action Girl" Cwen attempts to dress up to make her sister jealous only to look sublimely average. (The "Fancy Hat" didn't help any either.)

Spaced: Parodied mercilessly in the finale. Daisy tries to make this an Invoked Trope (including a memorable sequence where she extends a lipstick accompanied by the Star Wars lightsaber sound effect) and at first appears it's working, but then it turns out that the men were actually ooh-ing and aah-ing over a spectacular flaming birthday cake behind her.

Male example with Harry Dresden in Death Masks. Harry seems to enjoy the effect he has in his tuxedo when he goes to an art sales event with Susan to investigate Johnnie Marcone.
In Changes it's Murphy who cleans up nicely. Although it's a cute pants outfit rather than a serious dress, and Harry never gets to see it because the book ends with him getting shot dead before Murph can show.

Supernatural:
While the brothers Winchester are hardly chopped liver even at their slobbiest, in the episode "Red Sky at Morning" the costume designers very wisely put Dean in a tux and had him swagger down a staircase to the sounds of Bond music. A more surefire recipe for swoon-age I cannot conceive.
And then they go dropping Dean into the 1940s for an episode, with him being specifically dragged into a suitmaker because his usual jeans, flannel shirt, and jacket combo won't work in that time. Dean would look good in a paper bag, but when he steps out in a perfectly fitted suit and fedora, it's even better than the tux.
Also done with Castiel after returning from purgatory and shaving. Dean even shifts awkwardly in his seat at the sight.

Faye from Cowboy Bebop is not a slouch in the looks department to start with, being Miss Fanservice for the show. But when circumstances in "Ballad Of Fallen Angels" call for her to drop her usual trashy outfit and do up not only her hair but also makeup and wardrobe to pass for a high-class opera patron, the effect on her is impressive. Too bad the Big Bad was waiting for her with a bunch of goons anyway.

Though she doesn't actually do so, Herrena the Henna-Haired Harridan, in The Color Of Magic, is implied to be the sort who would clean up well. Unlike most women depicted on fantasy cover art, though, she is described as wearing sensible mail and no leather (except the boots. However, the boots are not black leather).

Pocahontas didn't get one in her first movie but got two scenes in the sequel. The first is Played for Laughs as she walked into John Rolfe's room asking "How do I look?" — not realising she's only wearing undergarments.

During the Greece Arc of Hayate the Combat Butler, Hayate winds up trying to pay back Hinagiku to show his appreciation for all her help. To do so he takes her out to a very fancy restaurant and tries very hard to put aside his troubling plot-related thoughts to ensure that she has a wonderful evening. He needn't have bothered as Hinagiku showed up a moment later wearing an elegant dress and looking literally stunning. As in Hayate's thoughts just stopped and he wound up staring at her for a few minutes until she brought him back to reality.

As Told by Ginger:
One episode has Ginger being forced to impersonate Courtney Grippling and so gets a makeover. When she walks into the kitchen with her hair done like Courtney and wearing stylish clothes, her mother says "wow, look at you". Although it's presented as a negative thing since Ginger starts acting more like Courtney and forgetting who she is.
An episode with a High-School Dance averted this for most of the girls, though Macie did make Dodie and Chett's mouths widen when she showed up in her dress. Ginger and Dodie also have this reaction to Macie when she arrives for their graduation.

The Big Bang Theory: Male example: Sheldon is known for his collection of Superhero shirts and when he has to be formal wears awful, multicolored suits. When Penny forces him to get a better a suit he looks absolutely stunning, earning a Jaw Drop from Penny and whistles from the audience.
And Played for Laughs because he refused to buy the suit because he thinks Penny made him try it on as a joke so he'd look like a clown. The full shopping trip is a Funny Moment as Sheldon tries on progressively worse suits.
A more straight example: Amy typically wears rather dowdy clothing with a long skirt and shapeless sweaters (along with Mayim Bialik's self-described "ethnic" looks), but in part due to Penny's influence she sometimes manages to dress up for special occasions and catch others off-guard with how well she turns out. Fans also noticed how attractive she became in the Nurse Chapel costume while "Playing Doctor" with Sheldon Star Trek-style. She also wasn't bad looking as Snow White either when the girls hit Disneyland.

Wizards of Waverly Place: Meet Harper Finkle, a girl who makes her own outfits out of various objects. Fast forward to an episode parodying Cinderella in which she plays the titular character. Like in the original story, her oddball outfit is transformed into a beautiful purple gown. Even the Studio Audience is pleased with the results.

In Luminous Arc 2, this happens to either Althea or Fatima, depending on who Roland was paired up with, with the dresses designed by Kaph and ends the scene with a special anime scene.
Rasche actually says this word-to-word to Karen at the ending, though we never actually get to see her in the dress.

Degrassi: Given the age most characters are introduced at, and how long they remain in the series, most will have this moment if they aren't introduced as stylish (which is most of the cast). Usually it goes hand in hand with She's All Grown Up, male and female. Both of the Van Zandt siblings pulled this, just compare Liberty and Danny's intro looks to their last appearances, and Clare got this as a plotline.

Played straight in the Grojband fanfic Cinderella Rock Girl, a Cinderella-esque parody. Laney fills in the role of the titular character, so Trina, acting as the Fairy Godmother, turns a white bedsheet into a beautiful diamond gown, completing the outfit with diamond eyeshadow, a white hair bow, and glass slippers. Nonetheless, she looks absolutely stunning. One person's fanart takes the described beauty Up to Eleven.

Grojband: When Laney participates in a beauty pageant, Kin and Kon work on her dress, hair, and makeup. She ends up looking absolutely beautiful in a black and green dress and her hair is done in two side buns.

Taken to ludicrous extremes in Zombie Land Saga with the main characters who are all, you guessed it, zombies. They may have bandaged and stitched up blue-green skin and sunken red eyes, but whenever Kotaro uses his hollywood-learned makeup skills on them, they take on the appearance of living girls. The girls frequently comment on how pretty they look.

In Legally Blonde The Musical, this doesn't happen at a party, but in fact in a courthouse; Elle gives Emmett a makeover during "Take It Like a Man" so that he'll have this effect on his boss before the big murder trial, after said boss refers to him as "Tattered Corduroy." (Both Elle and Emmett have very Jaw Drop reactions to seeing his transformation - as does an entire department store staff who all call him hot.)

Smallville:
Season 1, Tempest, Chloe dressing up to go to the Spring Formal with Clark.
Season 4, Spirit, a possessed Lois descends the stairs at the Kent Farm in one of the most hideous dresses ever seen — Clark catches sight of her and gulps. There was also perhaps a better example from season eight's Bride, where Lois comes down the same staircase in her formal wear as maid of honour at Chloe's wedding; Clark comes to meet her at the bottom in his formal wear and they both seem silently impressed.

The Princess Bride, where it's played straight and then again not quite so straight. Buttercup starts out as incredibly pretty anyway but moves up to Number One in the "Most Beautiful in the World" Chart when she decides to clean herself up, "unearth the territory behind her ears," and comb her hair. She does it all for Westley, though, so it's also The Power of Love making her even more beautiful.

Stargate SG-1:
In a way, they got to this by the 3rd episode by forcing Carter into a Mongol concubine dress. No staircase, but she starts the scene with her back to the camera; after the dramatic turnaround, her teammates have few words to say.
Vala Mal Doran also does one of these in "Bounty". Of course, the only person who pays any attention to her is Cam's friend Darell.

Avatar: The Last Airbender did it in the episode "City of Walls and Secrets", with both Katara and Toph all dolled up and Aang stunned into blushing silence and a stumbling compliment before they had even left for the party.
A more subtle example would be Zuko at the start of season three. After spending the first season being kinda ugly and the second being dirty and scruffy, the viewers finally got to see him all dressed up and prince-like.◊
* This also applies to Avatar Korra. While a tomboy normally, when she puts on make-up and a gown for a date or formal ball, she ranges from elegant to stunning.

Ménage à 3:
The trope appears in a very variant form when Gary finally notices that the ladette Zii is attractively feminine when she's walking around in a cosplay outfit (based on one of his favorite characters) that's essentially a fur-trimmed bikini.
Returning the compliment, it's later explicitly invoked by Zii here, when Gary puts a suit and tie on. However, it seems almost odd for Zii to mention the fact at that point, given that she and several other characters have been acknowledging that Gary isn't bad-looking almost since the comic began.

Mass Effect 2 does this with Commander Shepard during Kasumi's DLC quest, particularly if female: she gets a Little Black Dress and heels, the only even remotely feminine attire female Shepard ever wears. However, Kasumi is the only person to comment on it, and that's just because she's the one who picked it out.
After Kasumi's loyalty mission, it's possible to select the dress as the outfit Shepard wears on the Normandy. No one comments on it.
It's also something of a subversion: although the dress itself is quite feminine and appealing, her walk and run animations are the same as when she's wearing the in-universe equivalent of fatigues and combat boots, causing a fair bit of visual dissonance and ruining the effect somewhat. A Watsonian would say she's not used to moving elegantly in a dress and heels. A Doylist would say that EA wouldn't spare the budget for Bioware to create new animations for one short scene in an optional piece of DLC.

The Nanny:
Happens with Fran at one point though the shock may have been due to her dress being quite garish as well as sexy. Many episodes got use out of Chateau Sheffield's sweeping staircase.
It happens for the first time in the pilot episode, with Fran coming down the staircase in a bright red, sparkly floor-length number with a slit up the side to mid-thigh.
Maggie gets a moment in the same scene, with her father going slack-jawed and commenting that he never realized how much she looks like her mother.
Happens in "The Playwright" with Brighton's nerdy classmate Brooke, with whom Brighton (initially) didn't want to go to a dance.

Are You Afraid of the Dark?:
In the episode, "The Tale of the Closet Keepers", the resident tomboy, Kiki gets one of these. When she is revealed to the Midnight society by Betty Ann, she even gets a whistle from Gary and Tucker incredulously says, "I don't believe it! You look like... Like a girl!"
Happened again in "The Tale of the Mystical Mirror" which featured a girl starting work in a beauty shop. After a bit of primping by the owner, the girl walks out in a stylish black dress with full hair and make-up to the glee of her two co-workers. She's back to her normal clothes when she finishes work however.

Shriek from CatDog, when she goes to CatDog's cookout in a dress and her hair made up in an attempt to impress Dog. It results in nearly every guy (except for Dog) trying to hit on her, and when they realized who she was, they all fainted. As it turns out, prior to this episode, Dog didn't even know that Shriek was a girl.

Not that Chizuru in Hakuouki wasn't already cute, even when disguised as a boy, but her dolled up as a meiko◊ in the OVA caused several of the captains, including Saitou and Hijikata, to stop and stare.

Subverted in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade where Lyn tells Eliwood in their B support that she's very uncomfortable whenever she tries to clean up nicely in the Caelin court. Understandable, since Lyn has been raised in the plains of Sacae and only arrived in Caelin during the last year.

In Tales of Symphonia, depending on who the character chooses, someone will have this effect on Lloyd during a subquest. Sheena's is notably the most like this trope, though.
This also applies to Lloyd himself in a formal outfit. Sheena tells him he's handsome during the above sidequest, and Lloyd gets embarrassed.

Mass Effect:
Mass Effect 2 does this with Commander Shepard during Kasumi's DLC quest, particularly if female: she gets a Little Black Dress and heels, the only even remotely feminine attire female Shepard ever wears. However, Kasumi is the only person to comment on it, and that's just because she's the one who picked it out.
After Kasumi's loyalty mission, it's possible to select the dress as the outfit Shepard wears on the Normandy. No one comments on it.
It's also something of a subversion: although the dress itself is quite feminine and appealing, her walk and run animations are the same as when she's wearing the in-universe equivalent of fatigues and combat boots, causing a fair bit of visual dissonance and ruining the effect somewhat. A Watsonian would say she's not used to moving elegantly in a dress and heels. A Doylist would say that EA wouldn't spare the budget for Bioware to create new animations for one short scene in an optional piece of DLC.
In the Citadel DLC of Mass Effect 3 when required to attend another event a new dress is introduced and if Commander Shepard's love interest is on the squad he/she will comment on it.
Ashley Williams' return in Mass Effect 3 came with a very stunning makeover. Of course, she was already attractive to begin with, but in the third game, many people were pleased.

In The Mighty Boosh, Howard has a subtle moment of this in the series three episode The Chokes. Normally he wears ugly, unfashionable and clashing clothes in various shades of brown, but after finding confidence as an actor thanks to a Training Montage, he walks into the Nabootique with his hair neatly combed while wearing flattering black clothing and a dapper hat. His bisexual best friend Vince, who is hinted to be in love with him, doesn't say anything, but the way he looks him up and down from head to toe with a mixture of surprise and lust on his face certainly implies he was thinking this trope.

Downplayed by Aerith in the Final Fantasy VII Remake. She is clearly a very beautiful girl to the players, but many characters in-game doubt her potential to be picked for Don Corneo's bride because of her dowdy clothes and lack of upfront sex appeal. What she wears depends on how many sidequests you complete in Sector 5: completing some quests nets her a look like her Kingdom Hearts incarnation and she clearly looks great; doing them all gives her a beautiful red gown, she is greeted in town by a crowd of admiring onlookers, and even the hardass mercenary protagonist is left staring in stunned awe at just ho gorgeous she looks in it.

Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings. When Frodo and company first encounter him in Bree, he is described as a gaunt-looking man, due to the long and hard years he has endured as a hunter and warrior in the wilds of Middle-Earth. When they reach Rivendell, he is noted to look much more noble and regal after cleaning himself up and wearing finer clothing. There are many points in the story (especially after receiving his family regalia in Lothlórien) where he is described as suddenly seeming taller and fairer and more obviously the heir of Númenórean royalty in the eyes of his companions.
This occurs with Aragorn earlier in his life as well, as described in the appendices: when he enters Lothlórien for the first time, Galadriel dresses him up in rich, princely clothing like an Elven-lord, so that he might catch Arwen's eye.
Inverted after the siege of Isengard. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli are reunited with Merry and Pippin and can finally relax after weeks of chase and battle. They all sit down around a fire and Aragorn takes out a pipe for a relaxing smoke. To the surprise of the hobbits, he's no longer a lordly captain of war, but "merely" the man with whom they have travelled many miles to and from Rivendell. "Look! Strider the Ranger is back!"

Deliberately played by Agatha in a non-canon Girl Genius short story; they didn't have stairs in the right location so she brought her own.
Then there's the crossdressing Jägermonster, Maxim.
Justified when Maxim reveals that he schmoozed the costumers.
As revealed here (spoilers, of course), Dimo can pull off a pretty good aristocratic look when he cleans up, though he isn't fond of it.

Star vs. the Forces of Evil:
While Star is typically cute, her getting gussied up for a fancy ball In "Blood Moon Ball" is the first time her friend Marco compliments her looks. Star's demon ex-boyfriend Tom nails the trope's name upon seeing her later in the same episode.
In "Bon Bon the Birthday Clown", Jackie and Star are left speechless when they see Marco dressed up for a high school dance. This is also when Star's subconscious crush on Marco starts becoming conscious.
Also in "Bon Bon the Birthday Clown", Jackie, Marco's date. While she is usually a tomboyish skater girl, in her dress she (in Star's words) "look[s] like the ocean!"

In the 2008 Japanese film Ichi, hapless samurai Toma meets the title character — a blind swordswoman — when she is in a goze's customary rags. When she's called to play for the local yakuza boss to celebrate Toma's hiring as a bodyguard, though, he is visibly stunned by how she looks in a kimono.

In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Peter B. Parker is introduced to the viewer as overweight and battered, emotionally numb after a draining divorce from Mary-Jane and looking incredibly out of shape. His appearance slowly improves over the film. His last appearance, in a mid-credits sequence, he has cleaned up nicely and put on a suit, looking to rekindle his relationship with M.J. Though we don't see much of her reaction, she appears to appreciate the effort.

Glee: Plays this straight with Quinn and Finn in the episode "Prom Queen", and Quinn does look amazing, though it's hardly a revelation since Quinn is generally said by many/most to be the prettiest girl various characters have ever seen/met (former said by Finn during said walk down the stairs, latter said by Rachel in the same episode).

M*A*S*H: Subverted to the point of parody in the episode "Stars & Stripes". Margaret likes Sgt. (busted to Pvt.) Scully, whose attitude toward women is, shall we say, less than enlightened. To prove to him she's a woman along with being a Major and a Head Nurse, she gets all dolled up in an outlandish pink prom gown with Stepford pearls, high heels and lipstick. He appreciates it so much he flops down on her bed and asks her to (literally) cook him an omelet.

Alanna in Song of the Lioness gets tired of constantly looking male during her Sweet Polly Oliver routine. She gets Mistress Cooper's help in fitting a gown and "disguising" herself as a pretty noblewoman using a black wig. The first time she wore a dress, with George's mother helping her, both Jonathan and George walked in on them and both were promptly stunned by the pretty girl before them.

Boy Meets World: Played With in one episode. Topanga suddenly becomes self-conscious about her looks, and decides to get a makeover. However, Cory and Shawn recognize that she was already beautiful before getting "cleaned up" and now with the makeover she will be "mega-beautiful", and sure enough she stuns them when she walks out of the beauty parlor. At the end of the episode she decides not to keep up the new appearance because it's not who she is.

One plot arc of Deer Me has Rasha and Velvet attempt to make Viana attractive by their standards, which involves removing her mask, putting her in more feminine clothing, and giving her an overall new look. She definitely becomes more attractive to Thomas, with whom she shares Unresolved Sexual Tension, but returns to her old look. Viana later confides to Woola that she doesn't like the idea of Thomas finding her appealing just when she dolls up.

Kim Possible did this one, on two separate occasions, on the stairs at her house. There's no grand staircases in High School gymnasiums, so one would think that the real-life temptation to attempt this trope for a prom date is very hard to fight for a teenage girl.

After being told to take a hike by the Greek professor as a cheap opportunist, Mayer doesn't give up and asks for a meeting in her office. Princess Diana and Ms. Kapatelis decide to come to stop her harassment, and are stunned to see the publicist in plain casual clothes and pants with far more subtle makeup and thus looking cute as a button.

A subversion in both the book and film versions of To Kill a Mockingbird. When Mayella arrives at the trial, her poverty does not allow her to dress up nicely, but it's clear she's taken care to wash and groom herself the best she can. This is in contrast to her father, who looks like someone took a scrub brush to him. In the film version, she wears a shabby dress and bow in her hair, and the effect is quite sad. During an interview on the DVD extras, the actress states that wardrobe wanted her wear high heels. She said she would, if she could wear socks. When wardrobe told her no one wears socks with high heels, she told them "They do where I come from."

Ouran High School Host Club's Haruhi cleans up nicely in the first chapter/episode going from frumpy and disheveled to a Bifauxnen. She's also dolled up during the Christmas ball to help get two fiancés back together, complete with a wig, dress, and makeup. She complains about it and states that her face feels heavy with all the makeup, and that it's hard to walk in the heels the boys gave her.

Mulan shows up for preparation to meet the Matchmaker all messy from her fast ride in. The washerwoman even says "we are going to turn this sow's ear into a silk purse", and Mulan indeed looks very nice when dolled up. It's played with in the fact that Mulan is somewhat uncomfortable with dressing up like a bride. She gets a downplayed moment later when she and her friends disguise themselves as concubines to sneak into the palace - as she puts on a beautiful blue dress. It's notably the first time any of the men - including Shang - have seen her in women's clothes.

Wonder Girl Cassie Sandsmark's best friend George is not an unattractive teen usually, but she usually goes out of her way to appear androgynous and wears unflattering baggy clothing and her hair in a loose flat top which means, with the addition of her nickname, she often comes across as a boy. On the occasions she decides to cosplay she chooses much more feminine outfits, does her hair different and wears makeup which makes her appear much more stereotypically attractive.

Played with in episode 4 of Wakfu. When Evangelyne lets down her hair and puts on a princess gown, she thinks she must look ridiculous, but her friends are impressed. There are a few problems with this, though: they are supposed to disguise as "ugly" princesses, and Eva's cuteness makes her suspicious. Also, she can barely walks in high heels and falls several times, making the stairs part of the trope quite perilous. As for the Love Interest, Sadlygrove, he sure finds her good-looking... although he doesn't even recognize her.

A more straight example: Amy typically wears rather dowdy clothing with a long skirt and shapeless sweaters (along with Mayim Bialik's self-described "ethnic" looks), but in part due to Penny's influence she sometimes manages to dress up for special occasions and catch others off-guard with how well she turns out. Fans also noticed how attractive she became in the Nurse Chapel costume while "Playing Doctor" with Sheldon Star Trek-style. She also wasn't bad looking as Snow White either when the girls hit Disneyland.

A variant is done in Les Misérables. While Marius is bowled over by Cosette's beauty, he doesn't know how she used to look when she was a starved, abused child (the last time we see her in the musical). It is Eponine, raised throughout her childhood with Cosette, who gapes in amazement.

Koala in One Piece was found by Fisher Tiger's crew, starting out like this◊, understandable since she was previously a slave. After spending some time with them, she looked like this◊. Hatchan even lampshaded how she has changed.

The Brady Bunch: One episode had this as a plot point for Jan, the middle sister. She's wondering why boys — and one boy in particular — don't show any interest in her, so she has one of her brothers ask the particular boy what he thinks of her. He casually answers, "She's a good guy." Jan gets the picture, dolls herself up, and ends the episode with a Grand Staircase Entrance before the boy in her girly clothes.

Gender inversion in the Elsabeth Soesten series: Husson in Bait And Switch is a slovenly, filthy, unkempt, slimy, and disgusting bastard. Elsabeth is stunned to realize that under all of that he's actually quite a handsome man when she forces him to clean up as part of a plot. Unfortunately a shave, a bath, and a clean change of clothing doesn't change the fact that even cleaned up he's still a slimy and disgusting bastard.

When she later shows up at school with her new look, she has quite a few guys drooling over her, but then she gets stood up by Matt. It turns out he preferred her tomboy look.

Liechtenstein, Ukraine and Hungary from Axis Powers Hetalia. The first looks very cute in a blue ballgown, the second is quite a babe in her national dress, and Finland got a picture of the third wearing a very elegant Pimped-Out Dress during the Hetalia Bloodbath 2010.
Taiwan also looks very pretty in traditional clothing.
Not to mention the usual Shorttank Wy looks adorable all dressed up.◊ In that same picture, all the male micronations (save for Nikko-Nikko) clean up alongside her, and they all look quite handsome.

Skip Beat! leads to this reaction pretty much every time Kyoko dresses up. This has to do with the fact that she rarely wears even a minimum of makeup, and that her attitude changes, especially when she's dressed for her acting roles. When Sho saw her dressed up as an angel for his music video, he could do nothing but gawk at her in stunned silence.

Final Fantasy:
Faris from Final Fantasy V appears in a dress either once or twice in the entirety.
Battle-hardened former soldier Celes Chere from Final Fantasy VI reluctantly dresses as opera singer Maria for plot furthering purposes, causing Locke to blush red and ask "have you always been this pretty?"
Gau from VI provides a rare male example, when he's given a makeover courtesy of the rest of the party. He ends up coming out looking like someone straight out of the Opera House (where the above example takes place, mind), and a Cloud Cuckoolander stops being crazy enough to compliment his appearance (literally the only time in the game the man manages to say something that isn't completely insane). This was roughly the plan, since said nutjob happens to be Gau's father, who went crazy after his wife died giving birth to Gau.
Inverted in Final Fantasy VIII as when we first see Rinoa she is all dolled up in her white dress at the party. Squall does take a fancy to her but they don't hit it off until she's wearing her normal clothes. This Machinima adaptation plays it straight with all the girls getting dressed up for the Garden Festival.
Said by the stage master to Lightning in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII practically verbatim when she appears in the Pimped-Out Dress she has to wear to proceed Yusnaan's story at that point. And Lightning was already freaking hot to begin with.
Downplayed by Aerith in the Final Fantasy VII Remake. She is clearly a very beautiful girl to the players, but many characters in-game doubt her potential to be picked for Don Corneo's bride because of her dowdy clothes and lack of upfront sex appeal. What she wears depends on how many sidequests you complete in Sector 5: completing some quests nets her a look like her Kingdom Hearts incarnation and she clearly looks great; doing them all gives her a beautiful red gown, she is greeted in town by a crowd of admiring onlookers, and even the hardass mercenary protagonist is left staring in stunned awe at just ho gorgeous she looks in it.

Implied but not fully stated in All This Sh*t is Twice as Weird. Mahanon is extremely amused to watch his co-Inquisitor Victoria being fitted for a dress while also discussing tactics for an upcoming invasion. He makes no observations about her cleaning up nicely, but he does notice that her love interest - with whom she's discussing the invasion - is quite distracted.

There is also when Dryden, who while never ugly usually prefers the scruffy and disheveled look, dresses up for his wedding. He proves he can look quite genteel and even more handsome.

Teen Titans: Robin experiences this with Starfire, when she unexpectedly shows up at the party all dolled up so she can "investigate Kitten (the episode's antagonist) thoroughly". Whatever that means.
In the same episode, Robin himself looks quite nice in that tux.
There's another instance for Starfire, in the episode "Go!". Throughout the entire episode, Starfire has been wearing her prison garb and either screaming at everyone or being suspicious of them (since she just escaped being sold into slavery, that's understandable). At the end, when the enemy has been driven away, Starfire shows up wearing the outfit she spends most of the series wearing, smiling and looking happy and relaxed for the first time. Everyone is amazed.

Downplayed in The Princess Diaries, despite it being the Trope Image. Mia gets two moments where she has to put on a fancy gown. The first has her descending the staircase - but the focus is more on her behaviour than her looks. The second is where she arrives late to the grand ball all wet from the rain outside. After she's made her speech, she changes into her Pimped-Out Dress. The sequel plays it for laughs when Lily has to dress up for Mia's wedding.

In Enchanted, the example is recursive. Giselle shows up at the ball (with Edward in tow) in this fashion. Funnily enough, the ball is an "old fashioned fancy dress" kind, involving clothing of the sort Giselle's been wearing for the whole movie — except now she shows up in a fairly simple modern dress. Robert still gets distracted away from his date Nancy, who is also dressed up fancily. The reason for Giselle's very striking effect is that she suddenly looks like a grown woman instead of a little girl playing dress-up with the Disney Princess dresses she'd worn until then.

Beautifully subverted in A Storm of Swords: When Gendry sees Tomboy Princess Arya in a dress for the first time, he laughs so hard that wine comes out of his nose. (He does admit that she looks nice later, though.)
Same with Brienne. She looks like a man in men's clothes. In women's clothes, she still looks like a man — she just looks like a man in a dress. Not helped by the fact that it's very hard to find a dress that fits her. And even when they do find a dress that fits and is flattering in cut and colour, Brienne is still not better-looking than plain.

Game of Thrones:
Talisa Maegyr is shown to clean up nicely, without all the blood and gore that is.
While the gaudy pink gown doesn't suit Brienne well, she still looks somewhat pretty in it, which is more than we can say for her book counterpart. In the novels, the pink dress makes Brienne seem more unattractive. Suffice it to say the leather tunic and blue riding skirt she wears during her time in King's Landing suit her far better.

Subverted in Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon; the modern-day female lead specifically doesn't undergo a dramatic Hollywoodesque transformation. She's as awkward in a formal dress as a tomboyish salvage diver might be expected to be, despite being quite attractive. This just serves to illustrate why he's attracted to her, though, so there's something of a similar effect.

Daphne on Scooby-Doo has always been a rather radiant redhead. In "The Gorgeous Ghost" (Gold Key #25, June 1974, she is entered into a beauty pageant held by a society of magicians. With Velma as her surrogate stage mom in prepping her, Daphne knocks it out of the park.

White Sheep (RWBY): Jaune normally wears baggy hoodies and ripped jeans which hide a rather impressive physique. Yang is surprised the first time she sees him in a suit, and absolutely gobsmacked when she sees him in his "prince of the Grimm" costume, which includes lots of black silks, embossed leather, and a maroon cape, all perfectly tailored for him.

In Stranger Things, the boys have to dress Eleven up as an ordinary girl (i.e. a non-psychic who hasn't been imprisoned in a Government Conspiracy lab all her life and consequently has learned basic social cues) in order to sneak her into school. Everyone — especially Mike — is impressed with the results.

Another male example, courtesy of Louisa May Alcott. In Rose in Bloom, Rose Campbell must go to a social event and is told one of her seven cousins will go with her. She sees the guy waiting downstairs very elegantly dressed and thinks it's Charlie... but when he turns to stare at her, she's shocked when she realizes it's local bookworm Mackenzie aka Mac, the least fashion-versed of the guys, who wears clothes borrowed from his much more fashion-oriented younger brother Steve, aka The Dandy. In fact, poor Mac is so "lost" at what to do that Rose has to help him fix his cape.

Played subtly near the end of The Journey of Natty Gann, when Natty and Harry reach Seattle after days of hopping trains and hiking cross-country and Natty gets the chance to actually wash her face and comb her hair. Harry is visibly startled the first time he gets a good look at her after she's cleaned up.

Pokémon:
Misty has done this from time to time. The infamous example of her wearing a kimono at the Summer Festival and actually rendering Ash speechless comes to mind. She also looked particularly stunning in some later episodes as a Lovely Assistant and as a mermaid.
Also, in one episode, Ash and Company met a girl who dresses and acts tough. At the end of the episode, when she invoked the trope, Brock reacted the way he usually does around beautiful girls, which prompted her into resuming her boyishness.
In Sun and Moon, Professor Kukui is completely stunned when his fiancee Professor Burnet shows up in her wedding dress.◊ The kids have a similar reaction to seeing Kukui in his tuxedo alongside her a few minutes later.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic: The episode "Simple Ways" confirms that Applejack, the resident farmer/cowgirl, can make herself quite stunning when she wants.
There's also Rainbow Dash whenever she dresses up for big occasions, most notable include the Grand Galloping Gala and Shining Armor and Princess Cadence's wedding. Fancy Pants has commented on Ponyville being "charmingly rustic" which means he's well aware of how country folk like Applejack and Rainbow Dash can look gorgeous. Cadence herself looks pretty beat up and defeated when we first meet the real her but by the end, looks fabulous in her wedding gown.

Doctor Who:
Played straight in "The Romans": Ian changes into Roman clothing and a slightly drunk Barbara says he looks "splendid", even helping him style his hair correctly to fit the costume. It goes to his head a bit and he gets quite into pretending to be a Roman.
In "The Macra Terror", the usually very scruffy Second Doctor is put in a futuristic beauty-therapy machine that styles his hair into a neat parted style, pampers his skin and cleans and presses his clothes so that he looks immaculate. Polly is bowled over and calls him "gorgeous", but he expresses some reservations about the new look ("who wants to see their own face in their shoes?") and immediately dives into a "rough and tumble machine" to put himself back to normal again, to Polly's extreme disappointment.
Inverted in "The Deadly Assassin", where when the Fourth Doctor is forced to don the elegant academic robes used by his native culture as formal dress and looks an absolute disaster, with his underwear showing and his frizzy hair poking out from under the lopsided headdress. But when the Time Lords put him in prison clothes — a crumpled poet shirt, red corduroy trousers and scratched-up knee-high boots — he looks about as dashing and romantic as he ever gets to. And even gets a bit where he gets wet.
Played straight in "The Talons of Weng-Chiang", when Leela gives away her clothes and is given a dress by Jago to replace it — and when the Doctor sees her in it, he's actually left speechless in mid-word. Then he suggestively offers to buy her an orange.
Subverted in "Enlightenment". Tegan changes into Gorgeous Period Dress to the amazement of everyone. Except the 5th Doctor, who doesn't seem to notice. Much to Tegan's annoyance.
Played with in "Ghost Light", when Ace is sent to get more period-appropriate clothes, and returns in a tuxedo. Although she doesn't look too bad in it.◊
Played straight in "The Unquiet Dead". Rose is ordered to change from her 21st century clothes into something a bit more appropriate for the Victorian period. The Doctor is impressed.
Martha compliments the Tenth Doctor a lot when he puts on a tuxedo in "The Lazarus Experiment", and they both compare his look to James Bond. Not that the fangirls mind his usual natty pinstripe-suit-and-canvas-sneakers get up either.
In "The Unicorn and the Wasp", Donna puts on a flapper dress for a party with Agatha Christie, and the Doctor is impressed.
Subverted in "Robot of Sherwood", where Clara puts on a stunning red velvet dress, commenting that it might be a bit much. Her last Doctor would have been speechless, but her current Doctor couldn't care less.

In Child of the Storm, this happens with Hermione (as in canon), Carol, and Diana at the Yule Ball, all of whom clean up nicely to various degrees - Diana is already noted to be very pretty, bordering on truly beautiful, while Carol was already an Unkempt Beauty (though while Harry's already smitten, the effect of dress, make-up, and up-do is such that he has to make a conscious effort to actually use words). Hermione, by contrast, is vaguely noted as having become more classically pretty over time, but not much, since Harry (the usual POV character when she's involved) rarely registers that she's even female. As such, his astonishment isn't so much related to her attractiveness, as her startling resemblance to her mother, Wanda Maximoff. While he already knew that they were related, having worked it out, aside from the eyes she's described as being more or less Wanda in miniature.

Blake's 7. In "City At The Edge Of The World", a leather-clad Action Girl who hasn't bathed in a while gets annoyed over Vila's comments on the subject, has a shower and changes into a native dress. The device Vila is working on makes an appreciative electronic sound reminiscent of a Wolf Whistle. Bizarrely however this action also changes her into a classic Damsel in Distress who shrieks at skeletons and Security Clings to Vila instead of using her (already demonstrated) Quick Draw to blast the Villain of the Week.

The two have a screaming match that quickly turns into a strange meet cute, and Adam takes her to the wedding, dressed up and actually looking fairly attractive-despite still having an overall druggy look and demeanor.

Oscar in Rose of Versailles. She dressed like a man every day of her life, except one, at a ball, where she decided to go as a woman, in order to impress Fersen. It will work in a kind of way, but before it worked even more on her manservant and future lover André. The idea of Oscar in dress made him furious in manga, burst into laughter in anime... but in both, he stopped and looked amazed when Oscar showed up at the top of stairs in her white odalisque dress. And so were the guests at the ball later.

City Hunter: Kaori has sometimes put on a long wig and fooled her partner Ryo Saeba. In episode 137, an old friend of her buys Kaori fashionable clothes, and, with her wig, starts successfully dating Ryo at night. "Cinderella" was even the French title.

Kumatora from MOTHER 3 had to dress up as a beautiful waitress at one point, and while we don't directly see Lucas's reaction to it (due to his Heroic Mime status), we do see Kumatora having to remind Lucas three times to "not change his expression".

In Calamity Jane, the title character is constantly wearing unfeminine apparel and even gets mistaken for a man once or twice due to her clothing choices. It makes the moment later on when she attends a ball and takes off her big, thick coat, revealing a dress and lovely figure, a shock to everyone present. And when Bill - her date - sees her with her coat off, he thinks she's someone else before it mentally clicks two seconds later and he turns around, stunned and mouth agape. The rest of the men at the ball are pleasantly surprised along with him.
Earlier in the film, Bill accurately predicted that she'd fulfill this trope if she ever took the time to dress up.

In The Hunger Games, a not-so-small part of the preparation for the Hunger Games is all about cleaning up nicely. It appears to be more important than actually training combat skills. And while it can be assumed that the children from the first districts didn't need much "cleaning up" to be done, the people assigned to take care of Katniss nearly fainted when they saw her with her unplucked eyebrows, hairy legs, etc. Like Harry Potter above, this was lost in the film, given that "Katnip" was clearly quite attractive even before the Games.

Battlestar Galactica (2003): The sight of Starbuck in a long slinky blue dress instead of her usual military-issue tanks or flight suit renders Apollo quite literally speechless. Lampshaded by a previous exchange between them where he teases her about her (lack of) hygiene, and she tells him she cleans up nicely sometimes. Though it should be noted, Starbuck is an Unkempt Beauty anyway, and Apollo was attracted to her long before the clean-up.

Gender-flipped and inverted in Chessmen of Mars, one of the John Carter of Mars books. Gahan, the Jed (Prince) of Gathol, first shows up to court Tara in a gloriously bejeweled outfit worthy of his wealth and status. She is unimpressed. When next they meet, he is in the garb of an ordinary warrior. She doesn't recognize him and falls head over heels.

In the pee-wee football themed movie Little Giants, Becky "Icebox" O'Shea (a girl who plays halfback) falls in love with the team's quarterback and decides to go be a cheerleader instead, cleaning up nicely in the process. Of course, since the quarterback liked the girl who played halfback as opposed to a cheerleader, she un-cleans and wins the big game instead.

Casino Royale (2006) does this with Vesper. She was previously only dressed in business suits, but has to wear an evening gown for the poker game - one which James personally selects. She gets a head-turning reaction from the rest of the players, but gets this from James, having entered from the wrong door deliberately to mess with him.

The beginning of the ballet scene in Anastasia (which ends in the "what are you staring at?" vein). She gets a smaller moment like this earlier (with the same guy) when she has a new dress he bought for her as they get onto the boat. Previously she'd only been seen in her grubby peasant clothes.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Subverted, when Buffy dresses in a beautiful period gown for Halloween in an attempt to impress Angel, it turns her into a dithering, helpless creature (because everyone's being possessed by their costumes). He later says that he was never interested in Proper Lady types when he was human, because they seemed superficial.
In the same episode, Buffy attempts to get Willow to do the whole "coming down the staircase" thing to impress Xander, albeit dressed as a hot goth rather than a fairytale princess. However, Willow backs out and chooses a traditional Bedsheet Ghost costume. At the end of the episode when Willow finally works up the courage to wear the outfit, the dressed-up look has the desired knock-out effect - not on Xander, but on imminent love interest, Oz who spots her from his truck (in fact Oz catching sight of Willow in unusual outfits and being intrigued by her is something of a running joke in the run-up to their actual meeting)
Played straight with Willow and Xander in the Homecoming episode. Later spoofed in a callback to that same scene when Xander is about to get married, Willow in her bridesmaid's dress looks at him in his tuxedo and comments "Good thing I realized I was gay, otherwise, you, me, formal wear... bad combination."
Subverted again in "Inca Mummy Girl" in which the gang are having a world cultures themed costume party and Willow turns up wearing an Eskimo costume and Xander of course only has eyes for the Monster of the Week Ampata dressed to the nines. Willow remarks that maybe she should have worn something sexy instead but Oz is playing on stage and this following exchange happens:
Giles is clearly impressed when Faith shows off her look for going undercover at a formal party, a Pimped-Out Dress with Absolute Cleavage.

In another male example, Brief from Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt cleans up very nicely after he pulls up his hair. Despite the angels hating on him at first and didn't mind him dying from the villains, when he changes into his Bishōnen form he ends up having sex with Panty.

Firefly, Kaylee, the ship's mechanic. In episode "Shindig", some high class women at the party snark at Kaylee for wearing a store-bought dress, but she is happily vindicated when one male partygoer comes to her defense (and later the men are delighted to discover how tech-savvy she is). It is also inverted many times with Kaylee, with Simon saying that she dirties up nicely. He says she's especially cute when she's covered with engine grease or fuel.

Hey Arnold!: This trope is parodied in the episode Helga's Makeover, in which the normally tomboyish Helga subjects herself to a girly makeover using tips from a teen magazine in order to join an all-girls' slumber party. The result falls straight into the Uncanny Valley, especially because, as she herself points out, they're only nine years old.
Also, in Arnold's Valentine, she tries to disguise herself as a French girl, which ends with her sporting a literal poodle hairdo that looks as ridiculous as it sounds. Ironically, when her hair gets messed up, she actually does end up looking quite pretty, and there are other instances, such as Helga's Boyfriend, in which she can pull off genuinely good looks.
In the episode where they play Romeo and Juliet, Arnold tells her she looks very nice in her costume.

In Chapter 23, Kou is forced to wear dressier clothes and do her hair for an interview. Aoba and Rin remark that she looks really cute that way.
In Chapter 44, Rin, who wears nice but relatively casual clothing, wears a suit to a meeting with a client, and Aoba's impressed at how nice she looks.
In the fourth volume Yun reveals she was pretty dorky when she was in school, complete with Opaque Nerd Glasses. The present-day version of her is quite a cutie in Elegant Gothic Lolita fashion (and no glasses).

Inverted in Final Fantasy VIII as when we first see Rinoa she is all dolled up in her white dress at the party. Squall does take a fancy to her but they don't hit it off until she's wearing her normal clothes. This Machinima adaptation plays it straight with all the girls getting dressed up for the Garden Festival.

Over the Hedge has a little makeover for Stella who, with a haircut and comb run through her fur, looks really pretty. For a skunk.

In the first chapter of Rurouni Kenshin, Kenshin remarked how different Kaoru looked in her formal, feminine kimono compared to when they first met and she was wearing her scruffy dojo uniform.
At the end of the anime-only Shimabara arc, the tomboyish Misao puts on a cute and frilly dress and uses a Parasol of Prettiness. Sanosuke doesn't recognize her.

A Crown of Stars: Female and male example. Hikari usually wears plain, ordinary clothes and her hair is braided in Girlish Pigtails; her boyfriend Touji also dresses very plainly. In chapter 40 both dress for a party and Toji looks good, whereas Hikari looks stunning.

Star Trek: Voyager: The first two episodes of the fourth season ("Scorpion, Part II" and "The Gift") presented us with the gradual transformation of the character Seven of Nine, from a zombie-like Borg drone to the show's ultimate Ms. Fanservice.

The Mentalist:
While Van Pelt already looks pretty sharp in her work attire, when she really dresses up to pretend to be co-worker Rigsby's girlfriend for a sting, she drives the poor man to distraction.
And Lisbon, who is often overshadowed by Van Pelt, has one of these moments at a society fundraiser that she's been ordered to go to because the CBI is broke. Jane, UST-ee/unrequited love/co-worker seems not to notice, but then he is Patrick Jane, and probably thought he could screw with her in some way by not mentioning it. Made better by the fact that when she gets called away to a crime scene, she just sticks her regular leather jacket over the top and looks eccentric and beautiful.
Some fans have drawn a connection between this and his Bunny-Ears Lawyer stunt of the week — an unexpected Undercover as Lovers, which leaves poor Lisbon stunned and furious. She goes with furious.

Merlin:
Princess Elena, once the Sidhe is removed from her body.
Gwen, any time she gets dressed up during the first four seasons. Special mention goes to "Queen of Hearts" where Merlin is momentarily stunned into silence when he goes to pick her up for her date with Arthur. The fandom had a reaction like this too when the first on set photos of Queen Guinevere appeared online before Season 5.

In Detectives United III, the three heroes are on a cruise ship and dress up in anticipation of a formal dinner. Anna usually dresses elegantly, so the change isn't dramatic, but James and Agent Brown trade their usual cardigan and leather jacket (respectively) for a pair of sharp suits. Anna makes a point of affectionately showing appreciation for the change, asking, "What handsome men do we have here?"

Laney Boggs from She's All That. In this case, it happens just before she's about to go to a party - overlapping with Beautiful All Along. When she goes to the prom later in the movie, it doesn't happen a second time (though she does still look nice).

Friends: When Rachel (who is very beautiful all the time) heads out for her first night out with the girls since having her baby Emma, she is even more careful about her appearance. As Ross puts it: "You clean up good!" "You clean up good" is how the trope is usually phrased in Westerns.

Babylon 5:
Delenn is always lovely, as per her Lady of War status, but her usual clothing is Minbari and, while quite beautiful, isn't all that revealing. So when Delenn has dinner with John Sheridan and puts on a human-style black evening gown, Sheridan is lost for words.
She does it again two seasons later in "Atonement." This time the gown is even more revealing, and Sheridan — who is deeply and openly in love with her by that point — has an even more pronounced reaction.

Even The Little Mermaid (1989) has a moment like this, when she enters Prince Eric's dining room in a beautiful pink gown. He'd previously only seen her wearing a torn sail, mistaking her for the mute victim of a shipwreck, and has a Stunned Silence reaction to the transformation created by a hot bath and a new dress. His elderly manservant Grimsby is able to articulate it better.

Rip Van Winkle in Zero's Bullet is often described as plain if not outright mannish. Then she's forced to wear a dress while her suit is being repaired and Guiche falls head over heels for her, describing Rip as "the most beautiful woman he's ever seen". This stays in effect later as her suit becomes too damaged to salvage and Louise buys her some more flattering clothing (though Rip draws the line at dresses).

Happens in both directions in Heart of Steel when Alistair finally has a chance to treat Julia to dinner like he promised. His reaction to her all dressed up and styled to perfection (as opposed to haggard, disheveled, and unhappy) is a comical Jaw Drop, while she thinks he looks very dapper in his pseudo-Victorian tux rather than the lab coats that he'd been exclusively wearing up to this point.

In Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers, when Gadget Hackwrench, Wrench Wench Gadgeteer Genius extraordinaire, has to look glamorous such as being in disguise, she can more than deliver in that regard. However, the series makes clear, and the fandom heartily concurs, Gadget never needs any gussying up to be gorgeous as herself.

Lessa in Dragonflight, who begins the book as a filth-encrusted drudge, gets this after a vigorous bath and acquires something of a bathing fetish thereafter. This trope is actually quoted by F'lar.

The title character from Carrie. The 70s film alludes to it early, when Miss Collins suggests things she could do to her appearance for the prom. In the 2002 TV movie, one of the girls immediately compliments Carrie on her ass.

In Record of Lodoss War Deedlit, wearing an extravagant white gown, walks down the stairs with Parn, who is having a LOT of trouble looking her in the eye. Subverted slightly as he spends most of the ball ignoring her advances and swooning over a famous hero.
And Deedlit herself is so uncomfortable with the Pimped-Out Dress that she whines quite a bit at first, too.

In Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse, Midge develops a crush on Ryan, but he doesn't return it due to her Deliberately Monochrome appearance, 1960s-style fashion sense, and fondness of dead slang. After Barbie and her sisters give Midge a modern-day makeover, Ryan decides to ask Midge out after all. Then he cancels the date after learning that Midge hasn't abandoned her retro hobbies.
