This week I felt frustrated by the theme because I honestly couldn’t think of any choices for about an hour. So instead of suffering any further, and even though I came up with two movies on my own by the second half of the hour, I still had to look up a list online of makeover movies. But eventually, everything worked out and here are my picks for this week!
So this is not the most obvious choice because there’s no doubt Vivian is beautiful from the beginning, it’s the way the rest of the world that perceives her as “ugly”. Pretty Woman is the unconventional Cinderella movie and I absolutely love it! I love the idea behind it, I like the performances by Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, and I love that it marks the beginning of the 90’s, my favourite rom-com era!
Again, I know I should be picking “ugly ducklings” but I just keep gravitating towards these movies that take pretty women and simply change their appearance a little. They are beautiful from start to finish, but a little bit of hair care and waxing can go a long way, just saying. I think out of all of the picks I have in this list, Miss Congeniality is my favourite (such a hard pick though) because it’s the one I can easily quote. Plus, it has Sandra Bullock, who I really like, and she is my favourite rom-com leading lady by far!
The pick I had to search for because I had completely blanked about The Princess Diaries and for good reason, I haven’t seen it in ages! This was the kind of movie I watched at least once a year when I was a teenager but now, not so much. So forgive me for forgetting the absolutely stunning transformation of Anne Hathaway from a curly haired nerd to an actual princess. But this movie also makes me a bit sad, because it feels like they don’t make teen-movies such as this anymore.
