vrouv vs. mevrouw?? which is acceptable

Vrouw = woman

Mevrouw is the equivalent of 'Mrs." in English. I believe you would use it when directly addressing a woman in a formal way.

Mevrouw is when you now the name of the lady. Ze is mevrouw Chavez. Dat vrouw is mooi. See?

Mevrouw doesn't require that you know the name, actually. It could be used to address a stranger (for instance, addressing a woman who dropped her hat in the street, or a train conductor addressing a woman for her ticket, etc.). As a side note, it would be "Die vrouw is mooi", not "Dat vrouw is mooi."

'bent' is only used for the 2nd person singular. 'Je bent', 'ze is'.
