English term or phrase: you are very beautiful
I just want to know the proper way to say "you are very beautiful" in swedish, because there's a lot of words that are the same for one meaning
krista
Du är så vacker!
Explanation:
The above is what a suitor would say, but the expression/construction is far from universal. It contains emotions. In a situation where that's not the intention one could be sued for sexual harassment! So would, for example, a photographer rather say "Du är mycket vacker." to his paying client.

More context will yield a better answer!
