It's a movie trope as old as cinema. There's a girl: she's nerdy, she's strange, she's a tortured artist, or she's simply being tortured by evil stepsisters. But she takes off her glasses and raggedy clothes and poof! Her inner beauty is suddenly apparent on the outside! It's the stuff of fairytales and has convinced us all that with a red dress and a little bit of makeup (and contacts), we can all be "All That."
