Er steht dir fantastisch.

English Translation

It looks fabulous on you!

Nouns in German have gender, i.e. masculine, feminine and neuter and apparently plural. This means, when you refer to it the pronoun you use depends on the gender of the noun being referred to.

the table, it is nice der Tisch, er ist schön.
the sun, it is warm die Sonne, sie ist warm.
the museum, it is open das Museum, es ist offen.

Thanks for the reply! I knew that applied to relative pronouns, but not to personal pronouns like here. Thanks!
