the adjective elegans is 3rd declension, and the noun arbiter is masculine. the feminine noun closest in meaning is domina. the plural genitive form of elegans is elegantium. because elegans is an adjective, you'd need a noun for it to modify. take, for example, vestum virum (the garments of men).
so: 5th forms girls aren't dominae elegantium vestum virum.
sorry to be the SF Latin douchebag in residence, but I kind of had to.
