Pretty and pale-complexioned (4,2,4)
I believe the answer is:
fair of face
'pretty' is the definition.
'pale-complexioned' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite understand how this works, but
'pale' could be 'fair' (synonyms) and 'fair' is found within the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).
'and' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
