    I like her who is beautiful.

    1. I like her who is wearing blue jeans.

    2. I like them who are wearing blue jeans.

    3. I like it which has long tail.


    Are these sentences grammatical?

    Not really.

    Perhaps:

    I like to look at women who are wearing blue jeans.

    (What catches my eye is women wearing form-fitting pants that show off every curve. Mm!)

    Also, you can say:


    I like ponytails!

    See how that last one makes your point so eloquently and yet so simply?

    Perhaps you mean
    1. I like the woman [who is] wearing the jeans.
    2. I like the group whose singers are wearing jeans.
    3. I like the cat with the long tail.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
