     在中文里我们有很多形容美女的词汇或成语, 如天姿国色,沉鱼落雁, 倾国倾城, 闭月羞花等等… 英语中用来形容女孩子的字眼也不少, 但跟中文比起来就真的是小巫见大巫了。不知道那种语言里还有更多的语汇来形容美女。 
  1. 天姿国色:one can use heavenly beauty (e.g, She is a heavenly beauty/ she is heavenly/She is heavenly beautiful), angelic, unearthly (e.g. unearthly beautiful), and goddess (as in “She is a goddess.”) 
  Similar to 天姿国色 and 独一无二, 无以伦比, words that come to mind at the spur of the moment include unique, one-of-a-kind, unsurpassing/unsurpassable, has no equal, unequaled, incomparable, unmatched/unmatchable, second to none, and unrivaled. 
  例如:Her beauty is unequaled/unmatchable/unique in all the land. 
  注意:把天姿国色译成 “ surpassing beauty.”或“ Reigning beauty” 是错的。 
  2. 沉鱼落雁:Drop-dead gorgeous. Drop-dead means extremely. (=You can die on the spot due to the shock of seeing such stunning beauty.) A face one could die for, stunning/Stunningly beautiful. 
  注意:“ She could charm the birds from the trees” 的意思并不是她有沉鱼落雁之容,而是她能用甜蜜的嗓音、话语劝说小鸟从树上落下,或者她有魔法让小鸟从树上落下的意思。 
  “…beauty to shut out the moon …make fish sink and geese settle…” are good translations, but not what we are looking for here. 
  3. 倾国倾城.:"The face that launched a thousand ships" is a reference to Helen of Troy in Homer’s Iliad. 荷马史诗中的 特洛伊的海伦.In the Epic, Helen is the femme-fatale that caused the fall of Troy. (femme-fatale 致命的女人 or 红颜祸水. ) 
  例如: She has a face that could launch a thousand ships. 
  4. 秀色可餐:可用 “she is a dish”, although that is considered rather vulgar. 
  其他说法:delectable, luscious, mouth-watering, 
  5. 养眼:a feast for the eyes/ a sight for sore eyes 
  6. 出水芙蓉: Venus rising from the sea.(also known as: Venus on a half shell) 
  7. 她很丰满 :There are lots of English words for that! 
  例如:She is stacked/ well stacked. 这是俚语,在正式场合中最好避免使用。 
  其他说法:She has a great figure/an hourglass figure. She is curvaceous, well-built, well-proportioned, shapely, statuesque,… 
  8. 秀气,高雅,有气质:elegant, classy, refined, graceful, cultured, chic, majestic, exquisite, polished… 
  9. 性感 :sexy, sensual, sensuous, seductive, hot, titillating, erotic, voluptuous 
  副词形容程度: 
  1. She is a woman of uncompromising beauty and elegance. 
  Uncompromising. 
  adj. Unwilling to grant concessions or negotiate; inflexible 
  不妥协的, 强硬的, 不让步的 
  In the context above, it means 100%. 
  2. She is hauntingly beautiful. 
  Haunting adj. Continually recurring to the mind; unforgettable: a haunting melody. 常浮现于脑海中的, 不易忘怀的 
  其他相关说法: 
  Captivating To attract and hold by charm, beauty, or excellence 迷住, 
  Ravishing Extremely attractive; entrancing.令人陶醉的, 迷人的, 引人入胜的 
  Enchanting To attract and delight; entrance. 使迷惑
