ugly Betties: Verliebt in Berlin

Lisa Plenske (Alexandra Neldel) is a plain love-lorn secretary in this German TV show; the German version of Ugly Betty.

Glamorous Alexandra Neldel adopts a new image with the assistance of makeup, glasses, braces, a wig and a fat-suit which thickens her thighs and gives her a flabby tummy. In the second series Lisa’s look was softened; she got nicer glasses and clothes, and lost the braces.

Hasso von Hugo is responsible for her makeup. I am grateful to a German friend for the images of Alexandra demonstrating her fat-suit for a German TV programme.
