Shouldn’t there be a preposition ‘like’ in “She looked every bit a princess.”?

She looked every bit a princess.

Doesn’t this sentence need the preposition like, as in “She looked every bit like a princess.”?


When we are using look as appear, the comparative preposition like may or may not be used. The following sentence is from Oxford dictionary.
