"Catch her eye" nghĩa là gì?

'Catch somebody's eye' = catch the eye of (someone) nghĩa là thu hút sự chú ý của ai (giao tiếp bằng ánh mắt); thu hút sự quan tâm của ai (vì hấp dẫn, dễ chịu...).

Ví dụ
Kate paints hidden compositions (bố cục; kết cấu) that catch her eye because of their beauty, historical past and interesting aspects.

She spends a lot of time exploring the world around her - the mesmerizing (thôi miên; mê hoặc, quyến rũ) shapes and colors that catch her eye, but McKinley sees the world differently than most.

She also admitted that a man could easily catch her eye by riding up to her in a muscle (cơ bắp) car — or on a dirt bike — while sporting a Metallica t-shirt and some “questionable (có vấn đề, còn phải bàn cãi) tattoos (hình xăm).”

THE two vintage magazines with the words 'SWIM - A quarterly of the CSC Penang' clearly emblazoned (ca ngợi, tán dương; vẽ rõ nét (như) trên huy hiệu) across their front covers catch my eye during one of my regular visits to the Lorong Kulit Flea Market in Penang. CSC is the acronym for the Chinese Swimming Club. These magazines, in any condition, are not easy to come by and the 1948 publication date makes them both rare (hiếm) and desirable (đáng thèm muốn, đáng ao ước, đáng khát khao).
