Lovely is used as an adjective. Many things are described as lovely when they are viewed as pretty, delicate, nice, etc. A very polite, well-mannered woman is lovely. A beautiful bouquet of roses is lovely. Antique lace is lovely. It is a word generally used to convey not only beauty, but poise as well. Prim and proper if you will. I hope this helps!
