#10 The Princess Diaries |||| Anne Hathaway underwent a regal transformation in The Princess Diaries. When Mia finds out she's the princess of Genovia, one of her first duties is to get a totally new look (because royals can't have bushy eyebrows, as you know). She goes from being invisible to running from the paparazzi overnight, which only makes her true friends become more apparent in the long run. Photo credit: YouTube.  - Iconic Movie Makeovers

#8 My Big Fat Greek Wedding |||| It's never too late to take control of your own life, proven by 30-year-old Toula in My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

And THAT is what ultimately helps her land the man — and life — of her dreams. Photo credit: YouTube - Iconic Movie Makeovers

#9 Never Been Kissed ||||  At first, she tries WAY too hard to be "cool," wearing feather boas and white jeans (ew). But then when she acts like her true, witty self and stops doubting her brilliance, she discovers true friendships, nails her exposé, and gets to make out with Michael Vartan. Everybody say it with me: "I'm not Josie Grossie anymore!"

#3 Cinderella |||| You wouldn't think a makeover could inspire so many dreams and fantasies, but that's exactly the effect of Cinderella's magical transformation. This movie made the whole rags to riches story even more desirable, and it's probably safe to say it set the stage for almost all future makeover scenes. Replace the plump fairy godmother with a cheeky hairdresser, and you have about 50% of all romantic comedies ever made.  Photo credit: YouTube - Iconic Movie Makeovers

#2 Hitch |||| While Albert doesn't get a huge physical makeover (other than getting his back waxed), he does learn how to dance and talk to women in order to woo his lady love, Allegra. So is acting and dressing like a suave and dapper debonair the key to Albert's success? Only sort of. It gives him the confidence to stop over-thinking everything and act naturally around Allegra, which is what ultimately makes her fall for him. So profound.

#1 Freaky Friday |||| When rebellious teen Anna Coleman wakes up to find herself in her mother's body, she is obviously mortified... until she realizes that she can now use her mom's credit card. She takes her newly adult self on a major shopping spree, chops off her hair, and gets her ears pierced. The result is one of the coolest, sexiest moms we've ever seen, played brilliantly by Jamie Lee Curtis. This ain't no Activia commercial, people.
