I've never heard a native English speaker say "You are lovely in profile". You have a lovely profile, maybe.

I could imagine a photographer saying that to a model in English. Many Continental European languages use "have" to describe personal qualities though.

That's a kind thing to say, Michael. (I think you are nice, too.)

Is this supposed to be a compliment? Cause it sort of implies that from other angles you are less than beautiful.

I've never heard of this saying before. Is it similar to "pretty in person?"

No, in profile is a term mostly used in art. It means 'from the side'. Usually this is in reference to someone's face seen from the side. (google search for 'en profil' if you want more visual references)
