SB 10.47.1-2
sri-suka uvaca
tam viksya krsanucaram vraja-striyah
 pralamba-bahum nava-kañja-locanam
pitambaram puskara-malinam lasan-
 mukharavindam parimrsta-kundalam
su-vismitah ko ’yam apivya-darsanah
 kutas ca kasyacyuta-vesa-bhusanah
iti sma sarvah parivavrur utsukas
 tam uttamah-sloka-padambujasrayam

Translation:
Sukadeva Gosvami said: The young women of Vraja became astonished upon seeing Lord Krsna’s servant, who had long arms, whose eyes resembled a newly grown lotus, who wore a yellow garment and a lotus garland, and whose lotuslike face glowed with brightly polished earrings. “Who is this handsome man?” the gopis asked. “Where has he come from, and whom does he serve? He’s wearing Krsna’s clothes and ornaments!” Saying this, the gopis eagerly crowded around Uddhava, whose shelter was the lotus feet of Lord Uttamahsloka, Sri Krsna.


SB 10.47.3
tam prasrayenavanatah su-sat-krtam
 sa-vrida-haseksana-sunrtadibhih
rahasy aprcchann upavistam asane
 vijñaya sandesa-haram rama-pateh

Translation:
Bowing their heads in humility, the gopis duly honored Uddhava with their shy, smiling glances and pleasing words. They took him to a quiet place, seated him comfortably and began to question him, for they recognized him to be a messenger from Krsna, the master of the goddess of fortune.
