If I say: She's got a pale complexion and She's got a fair complexion, is the meaning the same?
I am in a state of uncertainty. On the one hand I know many different synonyms of pale. On the other hand I know a few interpretations of the expressions in question. I sympathize with the stuartnz’s statement regarding the negative and positive meaning of the connotations in question, but there are some more examples bellow which flatly contradict them.
