Beauty makeovers are our guilty pleasure. Whether it's gasping at the inaugural episode of America's Next Top Model or teaching a makeup-challenged friend how to apply a sultry smoky eye, we love transformations. But the best makeovers of all time happen on the big screen -- Hollywood invented the art of the plain Jane to goddess montage.

As a child of the 90s, "Clueless" is my #1 nostalgic movie makeover. With Cher's magic, Tai goes from "ensembly challenged" grungy tomboy to Beverly Hills It girl. And thanks to Cher, I learned that a Coke can is a viable hairstyling tool.

Movie makeovers have given us other important gems besides hairstyling tips. In Princess Diaries, we learn the importance of etiquette classes and soup spoons. And in Pretty Woman, we learn never to snub someone who "may" resemble a prostitute since she might be an elegant lady one day (Big mistake. HUGE.). Invariably, the final message is that you need a complete fashion and beauty makeover to be swept off your feet by Prince Charming (we're still parsing out how we feel about that one).

No matter the potential we're-getting-dressed-for-boys implications of these chick flick makeovers, we're still suckers for transformation scenes. Check to see if your favorite movie makeover made the cut.
