Wow! How it's possible to be so gorgeous!

Проверьте, пожалуйста, ошибки. Вопрос: можно ли использовать gorgeous по отношению к животному или вещи? Или только по отношению к человеку?

Валерий, gorgeous к «аппетитный» не имеет вообще никакого отношения.

Нет, не от этого слова :)

Ха, я был прав:
The word gorgias, from gorge, meaning “throat,” was the French name for the part of the headdress that covered the throat and shoulders. In time it also came to be used as a name for the entire garment. A beautiful headdress was so much the mark of a fashionable lady that Gorgias then became an adjective meaning “elegant” or “fond of dress.” Borrowed into English as gorgayse and then gorgeous, the word gradually took on the meaning of “beautiful” that it has today.
