50 Best Movie Makeovers

Hollywood has given these rough diamonds an exuberant polishing for our viewing pleasure.

CGI and big budget sets affect us only so much, it's making the bushy-eyebrowed, frizzy-haired, glasses-wearers see the error of their ways that really resonates.

We've selected 50 of cinema's best ugly duckling-to-beautiful swan moments, from '80s Working Girl Tess McGill's corporate remodelling, to widow-turned-fallen woman in post-war Italian drama Malena. Give your rating out of five by clicking on the stars next to each picture.
