I am french and you can very well say : elle est ma meilleure amie.....c'est ma meilleure amie is a casual way of saying it when you are in front of the actual friend. Elle est ma meilleure amie could be said in a situation where you are talking about a friend who is not present.

Elle est ma meilleure amie should work as well, shouldn't it?

Grammatically yes, but the French would not say it that way.

Of course, the French say that. If you google "elle set ma meilleure amie" with double quotes, you will get 50k+ hits.

Hmmm...I can say the C'est-Ce sont/Il est-ils sont is one of the hardest (to me :0 ) to get through. My plan is spend full week to learn get to the...bottom (:0) of it until I can say I understand the whole rule. Wish me luck! (Thks for all the discussions)
