    Question quite

    Hi,

    I would like to know what the word "quite " means in this context.

    in the sentence " those are wonderful pictures of Mary. I havenīt seen her for a good many moons. She looks very happy, and quite stunning."

    Does "quite" in the sentence mean really , used in the sentence as an intensifier , or to add emphasis , like saying "very"?

    thanks
