Now playing at Strange Horizons, the complete two-part story, beginning here:

"Beautiful White Bodies" by Alice Sola Kim

The fall after Justine moved back home, the high school girls became beautiful. She saw it herself, from behind the counter of the coffee shop by her old high school. The beauty spread viciously: first to one girl, then two, then four, and now almost twenty.

There are so many layers to this piece that I am tempted to talk about it here. But I generally let our stories speak for themselves, so I won't say anything further to prepare you for this one, except to hope there are other readers out there who will find it as awesome and fascinating as I do. Enjoy!
