why is "she is pretty but poor" wrong?

Krásná (beautiful) is stronger than hezká or pěkná (pretty).

"pretty" is less beautiful than "beautiful". It would be "Je hezká" or "Je pěkná".

Terrible sentence It says it's something bad to be poor

How about "Je krásná, ale mladá"? Is that a terrible sentence, too?

It just describes a common fairytale trope.
