13 Most Iconic Movie Makeovers That People Keep Talking About

The makeover is a classic element of modern film culture. There are many feature films that have undergone this motif such as “Maid in Manhattan” and “The Princess Diaries“. However, the idea of changing a character’s appearance to improve her status has caused controversy. Some have even been criticized for being body shaming and anti-feminist.

Despite these issues, the makeover really created a positive vibe. Watching a character emerge from her cocoon like a butterfly, frequently with a fresh spirit for living is enjoyable. Some movies have even achieved an all-timer status for outstanding makeovers, boosting them to the level of masterpieces.

Below are our selections for the 13 most significant and unforgettable, iconic movie makeovers.

#1 Andy Sachs (The Devil Wears Prada)

Meryl Streep, who played Miranda Priestly, said to Anne Hathaway on the first day of shooting, “I believe you are perfect for the position. I’m glad that we will be working together.” “That’s the last nice thing I’ll say to you,” she said after pausing.

#2 Cady Heron (Mean Girls)

Lindsay Lohan was originally selected to play Regina George; however, she finally chose to play Cady, the “good girl,” in order to distance herself from Regina’s character in the public’s eyes.

When Audrey Hepburn first realized that she’d have to be dubbed because her voice wasn’t powerful enough, she walked out. The following day, she reappeared and apologized to everyone for her “wicked behavior” in classic Audrey Hepburn style.

#5 Gracie Hart (Miss Congeniality)

In the movie’s opening premiere, Sandra Bullock stumbled and fell by accident when she got out of the car, exactly like her Miss Congeniality character usually did. Bullock was just careless, but the audience actually believed that she had arranged the trip.

#6 Josie Geller (Never Been Kissed)

The name Laney Boggs given to Rachel Leigh Cook’s character is a combination of two roles played by Winona Ryder: Lelaina “Laney” Pierce in Reality Bites and Kim Boggs in Edward Scissorhands. This is a nod to the physical resemblance between Ryder and Cook.

#8 Marisa Ventura (Maid in Manhattan)

To make her hair appear bushier, Anne Hathaway had to wear a big clip-in hairpiece. Cast and crew referred to the hairpiece as “the beast.” It took an hour to install her pre-makeover eyebrows, and each tiny hair was meticulously glued on.

There was a lot of detergent in the bathtub to make many thick bubbles in the scene where Vivian is singing. The red dye in Julia Roberts’ hair was washed off by the detergent because it was so intense. Later that night, she had to have her hair redyed.
