*Production[edit]*

/The New York Times/ explained that "Mr. Sondheim...has said he was never
particularly fond of his lyrics in “West Side Story,” especially
“I Feel Pretty”", later expressing that “The idea of the
song is so simple”.^[1]

*Synopsis[edit]*

Maria sings about being happy and feeling beautiful because she's in love.

*Critical reception[edit]*

Birmingham Mail described the song as "delightful",^[2] while The Tab
deemed it a "classic".^[3] Applause Meter called it "sweetly charming"^[4]
and VCOnStage called it "operatic".^[5]

*Cover versions[edit]*

The song was mashed up with the song Unpretty by TLC in a Glee episode to
create I Feel Pretty/Unpretty, a duet between Rachel and Quinn. It attempts
to show the irony is people feeling pretty on the outside but unpretty on
the inside.

The song was also covered by Little Richard as part of the 1996 RCA Victor
tribute album /The Songs of West Side Story/.
