    Ma Biche!

    In French "une biche" can mean a pretty hot woman
    But it also means literally "лань"

    Can we say козочка in Russian ? Or is Красотка better ?

    Козочка теперь уже не употребляется . Но звучит приятнее. Когда французский был в ходу так и говорили, в книгах встречается.

    А вот "лань" - не поймут. Разве только в цветистой восточной фразе.

    You can but don't
    It has very narrow usage range in this meaning and it's easy to turn a flattering term into an insult.

    It's a thing that sometimes a husband may say to his wife without being beaten afterwards
    Send me a PM if you need me.
