    Looking for a word/ idiom

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by AuThoRiZe(Life), Mar 27, 2015.

    Hello, I want to say X is one of the few who can compete with X2's beauty. I can't find the word or idiom I want to describe it as literary and good-sounding as I want. Please help?

    EDIT : I want replacement of the word "Compete"

    Rival, would be something you could use. X is the one capable of rivaling X2's beauty.

    Yes, that sounds better, if no better ideas are given I'll use that, thank you.

    to equal her beauty, to measure up to her beauty, to match her beauty, to hold a candle to her beauty (usually used in the negative) I like @J Faceless's suggestion also.

    Rival
    Equal
    Best (a bit archaic as a verb, but usable)
    Outshine
    Overtake
