how would i say "look pretty" in vous form?

  • french -

    You are pretty = vous êtes belle

    Sra (aka Mme)

  • french -

    how do you do

  • french -

    vous êtes jolie = rather than you are beautiful, this says "you are pretty."

    Sometimes you simply have to accept that you can NOT say exactly the same thing as in English. There is a verb "to look like" = ressembler à, or to seem = sembler. Perhaps the very closest you can get is "vous avez l'air d'être jolie" (you have the 'promise" of being pretty)

    Sra (aka Mme)
