Not really. You *could* say monsieur, madame or mademoiselle to avoid saying il or elle, but it's really fine to say il and elle. If you want to speak formally TO a person, you'd of course call them vous. But when speaking to someone else about them, you can say il or elle even if you call the person vous.
