This Pretty Face is a 2010 single release by Scottish recording artist Amy Macdonald, released as the third single from her second studio album A Curious Thing (2010). The single was released on July 19, 2010.

Although Macdonald has not confirmed an official story behind the writing of the song, it is said to believe that "This Pretty Face" is about modern day 'celebrities' who become famous, mainly only because of their looks (Paris Hilton) being an example. The music video, which debuted on Macdonald's Youtube channel in June 2010 also sets this kind off story.

I don't care
Who does her hair or
What clothes she wears
I don't care if it's Y.S.L. I don't care if it's Chanel
What matters to me is a strong belief
All this beauty is skin deep
Don't care about hair, don't care about eyes
It's about what's inside

You'll never know who you'll meet on you way to the top
You'll probably see them again when your fame starts to drop
Down down, I'll meet you on the ground
It's no good with your hair and your shiny blue eyes
It's no good when you finally start to realize
I need something more
This pretty face don't work no more

What happened to achieving
What happened to believing in yourself
Why listen to the musings of someone, somebody else
I'm sorry I don't see and I can't quite believe it anymore
What happened to believing that beauty's in the eye of the beholder

You'll never know who you'll meet on you way to the top
