Hi Pelin, While I agree with answer below that these are correct sentences, I would like to add that none of them are common. At least not among people my age (I am 29). These all sound very old to me. I imagine my grandmother using these phrases. If you want to sound more natural I would recommend using something like "she is such a kind woman." To me that sounds much more natural. Best wishes.

All are correct. The tone is slightly different. Sometimes, "She's quite the lady" would imply that she is acting like a lady in a certain situation. The other two would imply more that she has the qualities of a lady or gentlewoman within her, all the time.
