Ranking 12 Iconic TV And Movie Makeovers

These characters have gone from blah to beautiful. Or, in some cases, just beautiful to, well, beautiful.

3. Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel) on Boy Meets World


Makeover difficulty rating: 4

Topanga was also super-hot before, but she gets bonus points for spending a few minutes of this episode with half her hair cut and the other half still long to prove a point about vanity.


7. Mia Thermopolis (Anne Hathaway) in The Princess Diaries


Makeover rating: 8

Eyebrow tweezing and hair de-frizzing take some effort, but Mia's makeover loses points for the take-off-your-glasses-and-you're-suddenly-beautiful cliché.

8. Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) on Family Matters


Makeover rating: 2

One point for dropping the glasses, one point for dropping the suspenders. And yes, technically that's Stephan Urquelle, but it shows just how easy an Urkel makeover would have been.
