    ¿Cómo se dice esta expresión en inglés? Se trata de mirar de arriba a abajo a una mujer guapa observándola de forma casi lasciva, o al menos apreciando lo hermosa que es.

    ¡Ey, Juan, vaya repaso que le has dado a la chica ésa, eh!

    Saludos.

    Hey, Juan, you're really checking out that babe, huh?

    A more faithful version would be "to give her the once-over," which means exactly what you say, but that isn't used in casual speech as often today.

    Qué raro, yo siempre he entendido "dar un repaso" como echarle una buena bronca a alguien (to give someone a proper ticking-off).
