comment Complimenting someone on their appearance
There are many ways to praise a person for being pretty alone. E.g, 漂亮,秀丽,俏丽,美丽 and each having a slightly different meaning. And to compliment someone for being sexy, you can have another long list of phrases and idioms. Your question is simply too broad. This is what I am saying.

comment Request for a 成语 to describe a person with all of 貌, 才, and 德
I agree with this answer. In the olden times, for females 女子无才便是德 and for males 貌 is not important at all. 德言工貌 is too localized.
