They actually have done many of these studies.
They show a very clear correlation
of attractiveness and intelligence.
"Both in the British and American samples, physical attractiveness is signiﬁcantly positively associated with general
intelligence, both with and without controls for social class,
body size, and health. Both in the UK and in the US, the
association between physical attractiveness and general
intelligence is stronger among men than among women. In
the UK, physically attractive men have higher IQ by 13.6
points, whereas physically attractive women have higher IQ
by 11.4 IQ points. These mean differences imply bivariate
correlation coefﬁcients of r=.351 among women and
r=.414 among men. Physical attractiveness is more strongly
associated with general intelligence than any other variable
included in the equations."
