    Cómo puede ser que seas tan hermosa

    Hi people!. I would like to know how I must write the phrase that I have written.

    «¿Como puede ser que seas tan hermosa?»

    If there are a thing in this Thread, that you want to correct me, don't worry about, please do it.

    This is my try: How can be you are so beautiful?

    Thanks in advance!

    'can' needs a subject. You could say:

    How can it be that you are so beautiful?
    If you think that, you have another think coming!

    Or "How is it possible that you are so beautiful?"
    It's the short words that get you.

    The parts in red are not correct, it would be correct to say:
    ....If there are things in this Thread that you want to correct...... or
    If you see mistakes in this Thread, please correct them for me.

    ¡Buena suerte con el íngles!

    "How come you be so beautiful/How come you are so beautiful" would be a pretty common American English translation.
