    Depends on the context in which this comment is being said.  Also, declaring that Female A is lovely does not automatically suggest Female B or Female C is not lovely, but rather this is an expression of personal preference.  Use a food analogy.  A person is presented with three flavors of ice-cream, eg: chocolate, mint and strawberry.  They may like all three flavors but their preference is mint.  This does not suggest chocolate and strawberry are less then/inferior, just not the overall preference.

    Without knowing what was going on at the time, nobody can say.

    Let's suppose that A has just brought in doughnuts for the whole office because it's a miserable day and you're all a bit down. If someone says 'Isn't A a lovely person?' it most certainly doesn't mean that B and C aren't lovely too  -  it just happens that the example of how lovely A is is right there in front of you.

    Favoritism is about how you treat people, not how you observe them.  The best looking are not always the favorite people.  In fact often they are the worst.

      No, it isn't "favoritism."  I've heard that before and have no problem with it.

    If you're a member of management and female workers A, B and C are only employees, yes.

    Without knowing the context I really can't say.

    Maybe A is a great person & B & C are not.
