Leggiadrous (adj.): Elegant and graceful.

This word is particularly interesting because it's a rather clunky and inelegant word that describes just the opposite. If you were referred to as leggiadrous and didn't know what it meant, you may think it an insult.

"I told her that she was a most leggiadrous woman and she slapped me!"
