Intermittant Paroxysmal Attractiveness, a term used to reference a woman or man who is intermittantly suddenly attractive. This usually ocurrs without warning and frequently disappears just as fast. Similar to a "two-face". An example would be when a girl comes in to work one day totally dressed up with her hair and makeup perfect but is usually not attractive.
