如何用英语形容“ 美女”

Foreword

The author of the widely circulated web article “ 如何用英语形容女孩子的美貌和身材” claimed “ 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….” I do not know which language has more, but 小巫见大巫 is definitely not the case.

The author gave seven examples (chick, gorgeous, babe, turns me on, hottie,

well-developed, and cute), but failed to come up with anything resembling 天姿国色,沉鱼落雁, 倾国倾城…. I hate people making disparaging remarks of a language, whether it be Chinese, English, or any other, just because of their own ignorance. Although my English is far from perfect, I decided on writing my own version of 如何用英语形容女孩子, so people would know there is no lack of English words for describing the fairer sex.

The Yeti, March 11, 2011. The following is based on my 2006 much shorter Rainlane version.

First, yes, there are similar phrases in English, and NOT translations from Chinese, for ” 天姿国色,沉鱼落雁, 倾国倾城.

E.g. For 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 獨一無二的, 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.

Example:

Her beauty is unequaled/unmatchable/unique in all the land.
