hi everybody,

I was writing a description and I got stuck- can you tell me which adjective can go with a word "silhouette"? (I mean a positive collocation, but I want to find something better than just good silhouette).

thanks a lot

    slim/ominous/hulking/frozen/syphlike/tall/portly/sharp/trademark (as in Alfred Hitchcock ;) ), voluptuous, hazy....

    I agree with mgarizona. There are many adjectives that could be used in front of silhouette.

    a voluptuous silhouette ?

    Or do you think Twiggy had a great figure?

    How did Twiggy enter into it? :) I was thinking more along the lines of Mae West, Marilyn Monroe, or even Jessica Rabbit (Roger Rabbit's voluptuous wife in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"). Put a strong backlight on any of these women in a dark room and you'll see a voluptuous silhouette.

    How about "sexy silhouette"? :) It has a nice alliteration to it.
