Eliza Doolittle, My Fair Lady
It's amazing what a dab of lipstick, a straightening iron and a pair of contact lenses can do. We love when movie characters go from ugly ducklings to prom queens in one musical montage. Sure, it helps that the actors are already gorgeous, but some transformations transcend common sense. From cartoon princesses to cross-dressing dads, see our favorite big-screen makeovers!
Since Audrey Hepburn played Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle in the '60s, movie makeovers haven't been the same. This big-screen adaption set the bar. After moving in with an arrogant phonetics expert, Eliza learns to speak like an English noble. To make the transformation complete, she trades in her working-class dresses for gorgeous gowns, giant hats and lace gloves.
