美丽四射


Explanation:
mei li = beauty, of a woman when talking about people and can include non-physical attributes. Could not refer to a man, so the tie-in with physical appearance is inescapable.
si she = four (directions) radiate, i.e., radiate in every direction

The exact, appropriate translation would depend on the context.
