This was obviously the first -- and for the record, Sandra Bullock looked great before the makeover too!
Little Miss Sunshine
I mean, do you SEE Abigail Breslin?!
Drop Dead Gorgeous
Kirsten Dunst at her prime!
I Know What You Did Last Summer
I know, it's horror but that doesn't mean SMG didn't ROCK that crown (before her hair was cut off from underneath it).
"The One With The Late Thanksgiving" featured Phoebe and Rachel entering Emma in a tristate baby beauty contest (and she wins!).
Sally Field directed a TINY Joey Lauren Adams & it was golden.
Toddlers & Tiaras
I mean, duh.
Yes, Joey Potter once entered the Miss Windjammer pageant -- as did Pacey. (They were meant to be then too!) Also, Katie Holmes sings "On My Own" and well, it's awesome.
The Vampire Diaries
Last but not least, Elena and Damon shared their first dance at Miss Mystic Falls pageant in season one!
