Example 1: Standing near him now, she was a sight to behold, tall in the saddle, her dun-colored uniform fitting loosely on her big-boned, lean frame. He was beguiled by her uniform, her round, flat-brimmed Ranger Stetson hat, her gun, and her badge. Her plain face so easily adopted that no-nonsense bearing. He'd seen her laugh, but soon after, her face would reassume that stern countenance, that command presence coveted by cops. (2009)

Example 2: ()

be a joy / pleasure/ marvel /wonder etc to behold (something that is enjoyable/marvellous/wonderful etc to watch)
