Hi,Would it not be Usted estas palido ? Instead of:

Hola Anna

Although  and usted both refer to "you" singular, they have different conjugations. For usted you need the 3rd person singular, as in he/she.

Here is a lesson that explains the difference clearly. Have a look here

I hope it's useful.

I think that since it is in a formal form, then it’s conjunction is in 3rd body form 

Esta/Estas
