    I propose:
    "Tu es magnifique avec ce sari" or " ce sari te va a merveille".

    To know? You mean to understand?
    So "to look gorgeous" would be: "avoir l'air superbe", "sembler superbe".
    To translate "to look" (in this case only) I often use "avoir l'air" when speaking, it is less formal. Example: "It looks yummy!" = "Ca a l'air bon!" or "you look tired" = "tu as l'air fatigue(e)"

    Thanks for the reminder but my keyboard does not allow me to use the shortcuts and it takes too long to use a virtual one or any other option.
    Otherwise I would use them, of course.
    But, still thanks for the link! :D
