    Тебе очень идёт. - means 'It suits you well' (usually about clothes, jewelry and other unnecessary stuff).

    Thanks a lot.

    How do you express the same thing for nice women in photos?

    Hmm, couldn't you just say "Ты очень красивая."? - "You are very beautiful."
    Я просто пытаюсь учить русский язык.

    Или возможно - "какая красота!" Though to be honest, I'm not sure how accepted that is as a compliment. It's "What a beauty!"
