It sounds to me as if your friend is seeking attention, and this is how she gets it. If so, the reason she brushes you off may be because, if she were to say, "By golly, you're right! I AM attractive!" she would no longer have a way to fish for compliments. Eric Berne, in his classic book Games People Play, describes a game he calls "Ain't It Awful?" which sounds much like the situation you've mentioned.
