The obvious translation for 'magnifique' is magnificent. We should try to expand our vocabulary and the simplest way is to use a dictionary. Using Using beautiful or fabulous changes the meaning of the sentence, beautiful = beau, beaux; belle, belles fabulous = fabuleux magnificent = magnifique

What's wrong with "this skirt in silk is absolutely magnificent."?

Agree - it could be 'this skirt in silk', as opposed to 'this skirt in cotton'

Why not that silk skirt?
