    so more beautiful

    Hi,

    -Michael loved looking so much younger than his age. (In my opinion, it is OK)
    Michael loved looking so younger than his age.

    -Alice tries to look so much more beautiful than she is. (In my opinion, it is OK)
    Alice tries to look so more beautiful than she is.

    I know that we can simply utter ''Michael loved looking younger than his age'', but I would like to ask if I can put 'so , so much' in those sentences?

    Thanks.
