I like the word sophistication more than elegant. When you say she is
sophisticated that means that she is well educated, polite, smart,  dress well,
eloquent, cultured and has a good family background.

A good family background has nothing to do with this.

Elegance in a lady is the way she moves, the way she behaves, her sense of courtesy, her way of just fitting in, her way of being smooth and almost being part of the environment. Elegance in a lady is when her every request is everybody's command.

When a lady shows elegance it means she defines grace in every personal, social and etiquette way.

Sophisticated is someone who is trying to be elegant but in an unnatural way and often masked by the things which she already possess.

Seriously, I agree with Liangzai's post the most so far. He hit the nail on the head.

I also agree with liangzai except that I would change the last sentence to read that her opinions and wishes are respected by everybody.  A small difference, but "command" seemed a little imperious to me.

Here's to all of the elegant ladies.:)
