The Countess is ready to help HollywoodLifers be more fabulous than ever! Check out her advice on finding great men and having flawless style — even on a budget!
The Real Housewives of New York City star Countess LuAnn De Lesseps is ready to help HollywoodLifers with their toughest love and style questions with her first weekly column. Considering how glam she is, it’s no surprise that she has the best advice ever! Check out her answers to some of your toughest questions below.
I never meet any nice guys! How can I find a man who’s as good as your boyfriend Jacques Azoulay? — Emily T. in New York City
When I finally met Jacques, I was open to meeting new people and I had a positive attitude about life. To meet a great guy like him, you have to think that every time you leave your house — whether you are going to the market, church, or the hardware store (always a great place) — that you might meet the man of your dreams. Being interested is what makes you interesting, so why not take an art or cooking class or volunteer for a cause you care about? This way, you’ll meet a man who enjoys doing the same things as you and with whom you have some sort of connection. Stay positive and you’ll be surprised how many great guys are attracted to you. CHEERS!
What are three things every woman should have in her closet? — Ann R. in Chicago
The basics every woman should have in her closet are a well-made sheath dress in a solid color like navy or beige that mixes with everything, a great pair of neutral pumps that can take you from day to night, and a light trench coat. It’s amazing how a simple dress can be made fabulous by adding interesting accessories like large turquoise earrings or a chic scarf. Choose a pump that matches your skin tone to make your legs look longer. CHIC!
How can everyday women achieve your level of elegance without spending a lot of money? — Helen E. in Seattle
I always say that looking elegant is not dependent on the amount of money you spend but on how you put yourself together. Don’t blow your entire clothing budget on trends — instead invest in classic pieces that will last for years. I’m a huge fan of interesting accessories like big statement necklaces that take a simple dress from daytime luncheon to evening cocktail. If you have to ask more than one person “does this look good on me,” TAKE A PASS!
