How do great authors describe their characters' physical appearances?

Hi -- I'm looking for examples of how great authors describe their characters' physical appearance -- clothes, hair, facial expressions, etc. Obviously the way authors do this tells a lot about their characters, but I haven't pinpointed what makes a physical description GREAT. Any ideas?
