"They" to refer to a person's looks?

If you say "her looks have faded" would you say in response, "No, they haven't" or is that "they" incorrect?

2I'm guessing you're asking because you're not sure if "looks" should be treated as a singular noun. In future questions, you might want to elaborate a bit more on why you're confused. – J.R. – 2017-08-29T21:14:01.330

Well, since the subject is "looks" and it's plural, they is correct. Hence, your response, "No they haven't." is correct.
