she is a beautiful young lady
why this sentence use 2 adjectives ? can it be she is a beautifully young lady .
She is a beautiful young lady is absolutely fine (and also a sincere compliment without overdoing it).
If you think of young lady as a noun phrase rather than an adjective modifying a noun, it's easier to see why you can then modify the whole with another adjective. This is also why you do not need a comma after beautiful.
Beautifully young lady is also correct grammatically (you can modify an adjective with an adverb – very young lady), but it is logically nonsense.
