NPR Sunday Puzzle (Apr. 30): "Here's Looking at You, Kid"

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Apr. 30): "Here's Looking at You, Kid":
Q: Name a boy's nickname in three letters. Name another boy's nickname in four letters. Say these names out loud, one after the other. The result, phonetically, will be a familiar two-word phrase for someone who is good looking. The phrase is an entry in the dictionary. What is the phrase?
The credit for this answer goes to my wife this week... The only clue I'll give is that the final answer is 3 syllables.
Edit: This one seemed a little harder for some people to figure out, myself included. Fortunately, my wife was able to come up with it in about 30 seconds...

For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
