That one is iffy.
Mostly because it is subjective and requires a lot more information.
A Paladin might respond, "I think that you are."
And not fall, because in his opinion she, and all living things, are beautiful.
However, if she were to clarify that, "Am I beautiful by the standard assumption of physical beauty that is largely accepted in society."
Then the Paladin might have a problem.
Either way, you can do that, but by the strictest sense, a lie, any lie, is grounds for a fall.
When did he say that? I mean at least from my interpretation of what he said he would have a paladin fall for any outright lie. And as such if the question were phrased differently he could be put into a situation where he would have to answer with the objective truth. Then again a paladin doesn't have to answer any question asked of him. In the case of the societal standards of beauty question he could reply, "True beauty is not derived from the frail mortal shell but from the soul within, you are beautiful." Not a lie but not necessarily the answer that she was looking for. He could also simply refuse to answer.
