The thing most ponies would get from meeting Rarity at first glance would be either a sense of elegance and grace, or snobbery and a little bit of conceit. Of course, this depends on somepony's perception (and what kind of mood Rarity is in at the time). Rarity is the owner of a dress shop called Carousel Boutique in Ponyville, and has a very high interest in fashion. However, instead of following trends, she instead tries her best to create them. Her number one dream is to open a shop in Canterlot.
Rarity is a bit of a romantic and likes to dream of the day when a fairy tale prince sweeps her off her feet. Despite this, she seems oblivious to the fact Spike likes her. Also, she tends to be highly concerned to see anything that offends her sense of fashion or taste; canon examples of this include cutting off her own tail for a dragon who lost have his mustache and giving a messy-haired Twilight Sparkle a makeover upon first meeting. When she gets 'in the zone' as she puts it, she abhors being disturbed. However, if a pony's a friend (or famous), she'll (somewhat grudgingly) pause her work to see what they need.
Rarity, above all else, considers herself an elegant and graceful lady. It's not uncommon to see her getting pampered at the spa when she's not working, getting mani-pedis and soaking in a hot tub. As a result, she detests manual labor, unless it involves sewing, of course. She can also act like a diva, as evidenced in the episode where she was kidnapped by some desert dogs; also, when something bad happens to her, she wails, moans, and falls over like it's her job to be a professional drama queen. She can be almost harsh when she critiques other ponies. Above all else, she's probably one of the worst (or best, depending on your viewpoint), whiners in Ponyville, if not Equestria, and she knows it; this is how she managed to drive her kidnappers crazy enough that when her friends came to rescue her, they practically gave Rarity back.
On the more positive end of the spectrum, Rarity is a bearer of one of the Elements of Harmony, representing Generosity. Despite being ambitious, she aims to please, working herself to the brink of exhaustion when trying to make dresses for her friends for one of the many galas held in Canterlot. However, this proved almost futile when her friends rejected her first designs, wanting something that suited them better individually; it didn't end well, and the first dresses looked even better as a result. Rarity worked very hard trying to please her friends, and it's something she continues to do when she's not having a bout of vanity or selfishness. What cemented her role as the representative of her element was the aforementioned deed of chopping off her tail to even out a lake dragon's mustache.
Because she works so hard, it's easy for her to get stressed out, especially if things aren't working the way she wants them to. Her mane and tail tend to frizz when this happens. While she can sometimes let her own selfishness get the best of her, she's always ready with an apology when she realizes she's been wrong.
