Un beau garçon et un bel homme

I still have trouble telling my husband he’s a bel homme – it sounds too feminine!

The rule is when the masculine adjective beau comes before a vowel (including the silent h), the spelling changes to bel.

Tu est un beau garçon.
Tu est un bel homme.
Ah oui, cet homme est beau.

PS. If you tell a man he’s a bel homme, make sure you say un and not une!
