This doesn't actually mean anything, since 'lovely', when used to describe a woman's appearance, is synonymous with 'beautiful'.

Why? It's like saying "the car is more blue than azure". It's slotting words together like Lego bricks without thinking about the meaning. There isn't gouing to be any 'context'.
