Movie Makeovers: Memorable Drab to Fab Character Transformations
Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady
This 1964 classic -- adapted from a musical based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion -- follows Audrey Hepburn's character, Eliza Dolittle, as she makes the journey from cockney flower girl to proper, high-society English gentlewoman. Aided by elocution professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison), Eliza corrects her working-class accent and trades her mismatched duds for gorgeous gowns and elaborate headpieces. My fair lady, indeed.
