To say someone is gorgeous what do people usually say? And for something nonliving? Would it just be “magnifique” and “merveilleux” and stuff like that?
In French, we can translate "gorgeous" as different words depending on the context.
To describe a woman we got multiple words like "somptueuse" and "charmante".
For an object it could be "magnifique" and "merveilleux" as well as "raffiné" and "élegant".
For a drop dead kind of gorgeous woman, we could say canon :
'tain, elle est vraiment canon, la fille!
Applied to a man, I would use beau gosse :
Il est beau gosse
C'est un beau gosse.
Beau gosse has been recently abbreviated in bg /beʒe/. I first heard it two years ago used by my ten-year-old son. It can be used as a form of address more or less ironically :
Alors, bg, ça va!
