I think that an individual with class is well-spoken, gracious, and able to make all persons feel at ease, regardless of social status--from the clerk in the grocery store to the wealthiest person in town,--the individual with class will make each person feel that they are important. A person with class always demonstrates good manners (please, thank-you, yes ma'am, thank you sir, etc..) and never speaks ill of another person.
Now, an elegant person is always well-groomed (clean face, complimentary hairstyle, clean nails, etc...) and looks appropriate for the occasion. To me, an elegant lady never wears too many accessories, and carries a nice handbag (oh how I long for a Hermes Birkin bag!!!). An elegant lady sits like a lady (ankles crosssed) and also is able to engaged in and hold her own in a variety of conversations. Finally, an elegant/classy lady does not allow herself to "lose it" in a heated argument, etc....

Class is a way of handling one's self always with grace towards other people, regardless of the situation. One who has class has character too, a strength of personality without being overbearing, a belief in one's self without arrogance, the ability to see the good in everyone without pretension.

Elegance is shown by how someone carries himself/herself. Good posture is necessary, but expensive clothes are not. An elegant person seems to glide, not plod, into a room.

One is either born with it or will never have it.
Completely agree!! You have used my own words.

An elegant person doesn't walk but float; she/he dosn't talk but speak; don't smile but radiate. Is always kind (but firm), never swears, and always has pristine manners.

This is how I think about the subject.
Yes,very true!
