Does an descriptive couplet

Does an descriptive couplet have to be repeated throughout a text in order for it to be considered an epithet?

epithet for daisy

crazy daisy? could that work? or is that only if she's known this way forever more; like 'the girl who leaves the top down in a borrowed convertible'.

Can epithets be applied to more than just people and names?

On wikipedia, one of the examples of an epithet is from Romeo and Juliet, such as "star-crossed lovers". Would this also be a credible example? Most of the examples I see here are just names of people.
