* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Catelyn Stark was one while she was a Tully, although she's gone native with the Starks. Still, she retains an air of refinement and mild strictness.

A Proper Lady is a gentle yet strong being, [[IncorruptiblePurePureness incorruptible]] and [[ChasteHero pure as the driven snow]], as unlike TheVamp as she comes, and Madonna-like in her virtues. She sacrifices herself for the good of her family, religion, and country. She is intelligent enough to [[ApronMatron smoothly run a household]], and [[TheConsigliere wisely spends her husband's money]] for the good of her family, never guilty of negligence or selfish frivolity. She possesses the wit, taste and esprit necessary to be [[{{Socialite}} a star of Society]], and never crosses the border of good taste and civility. She is devoted and loyal, never treacherous or scheming. Her manners are never less than impeccable, and her good will and charity are a beacon to those lucky enough to live around her. She is perfectly groomed, likely [[BeautyEqualsGoodness beautiful]] or at least comely (while the female antagonist will be [[BeautyIsBad more beautiful]] and [[EvilIsSexy appealing]]). However, [[TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside more important than her personal looks is her gentle smile]]. Because small size is endearing (and allows for protective embraces from her lucky husband or fiancé), she will probably be on the shorter side. Chances are that she is an EnglishRose, especially with [[RavenHairIvorySkin dark hair and fair skin]]. ParasolOfPrettiness is a typical prop.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Women of the Vorin religion are expected to be controlled, quiet, and [[HigherEducationIsForWomen scholarly]]. The vast majority of Vorin scholars are women, with the only men being ardents (who are legally genderless). The traditional Vorin dress is the havah, which is form-fitting like a ChineseDress but without any skin showing. One of the oddities of Vorinism is that women are supposed to keep their left hands hidden at all times in a sleeve. This "safehand" is not supposed to be used for anything, so the more higher-class women become very good at only using their right hands. Peasant women just wear a glove.

* Moana Dixon in ''FanFic/TheMiraculousAdventureOfTessaAndLunala'' and ''FanFic/TheLiloAdventures'' fits the trope.

* Moana Dixon in ''FanFic/TheMiraculousAdventureOfTessaAndLunala'' and ''FanFic/TheLiloAdventures'' fits the trope. She is known for her courage and kindness, but she does have a flamboyant side to her.
** Another main character, Brianna, also fits the trope pretty well. Like Moana, she has a kind personality and proper manners. She does get angry on some occasions, and she freaks out several times, first shown when [[spoiler: Ash, Serena, Blake and Jasmine learn her father's identity]].
