expression
 
Is there an expression to describe somebody who is so good looking that every clothing looks good on them? I have found ´have a nice rack ´ but it says it is used for women only. I told my student to write that everything looks good on him/ her. Thanks in advance.

I don ´t think we have such an expression, Pedro. To have a nice rack means to have large breasts, so it isn ´t even related to what you are looking for.

Have a nice rack means big breasts, used by men that is not real school appropriate!:)

Thanks both of you. Looked it up on an online dictionary. Thank godness I didn ´t tell my student to use it. Then my suggestion : everything looks good on you would be how an english speaker would convey that idea?

You could possibly use the term dapper. An American phrase may be "he is always dressed to the T".

Also, ´everything looks good on him.her ´ is fine.

That took me right back to the 70s (politically incorrect) British sitcom, Mind Your Language. I very nearly choked to death on my tea there. You were definitely right to hold back on an answer to that one. I can ´t even begin to imagine the consequences. Too late to save my sides, though. I ´m afraid they have split all the way down from laughing.

Never heard that expression, Bruce. Is it AE?
 
Where I ´m from:
 
Everything looks good on you/him/her
 
You/he/she look/s good in anything

To have a nice rack! Never heard it before! But I love the French expression: il y a beaucoup de monde au balcon ;-)))) It ´s probably old-fashioned?

@ Jayho, one can hear "nice rack" in American television shows such as Bones.
