    hot & sexy

    hello!
    I have a quick question: a person can be hot & sexy or is just a repetition because the 2 adjectives mean exactly the same?
    Thank u!

    They can be, but they needn't be. A woman described as a 'hot babe' is probably sexy. But a 'hot new actor' doesn't have to be sexy - he just has to be 'good box-office'.

    Re: hot & sexy

    I actually meant using this 2 adjective togheter describing one person. "he is really hot and sexy"
    is that an unnecessary repetition?

    Re: hot & sexy

    In that context it is probably unnecessary - putting the words together can make the sentence mean 'He is hot [i.e. suddenly popular] because he's sexy'.

    But imagine a case where two young stars are both "hot" (in the celebrity-based/financial sense). One could reasonably and sensibly say 'A is hot, but B is hot and sexy.
