Clothes Makes The Countess

by CARSON GRIFFITH · June 18, 2009

Major props to the Real Housewives Countess LuAnn de Lesseps for finding an outfit that would effortlessly take her from a day's worth of events straight into the 20's themed Montauk Yacht Club's 80th Anniversary. Her monochromatic skirt and top combo, in a color usually reserved for 50% off Revlon lipsticks (Dusty Rose?) at Duane Reade, surprisingly works perfectly here with the nude lace accent at the neckline. The fit is flattering and age appropriate, compared to some of the get-ups normally seen on other Real Housewives (and we aren't even talking about New Jersey).

While there's no flapper dresses or feathers in sight, she did step it up with a long pearl necklace for the party's theme. Dressed to a tee, she looked like party royalty. Er, or nobilty. Um, not quite sure about titles and divorce settlements, so let's just leave it at we have a feeling the other Real Housewives couldn't hold one of those candles to this lovely lady.
