Class with the Countess


Countess LuAnn de Lesseps knows firsthand that class is a state of mind, not a birthright. Raised in Connecticut—half French Canadian, half Native American—she worked as a nurse before she started modeling. On her first trip to Europe, she was awed by the lifestyle of the Italians and stayed, eventually becoming a television personality. At a dinner party in Gstaad, she began a fairytale romance with Alexandre Count de Lesseps, a French aristocrat of the Suez Canal dynasty, who made her a countess

Through all of her experiences, she learned that class comes from within – and that elegance and taste can be acquired. Now she shares her savvy advice and her inspiring story in Class with the Countess, featuring:

The Art of Being Yourself (In Any Situation)
with tips for making a stellar first impression, exuding self-confidence, and dressing with style

The Art of Making Other People Comfortable
covering dazzling opening lines, table manners, and how to entertain with ease and grace

The Art of Seduction
brimming with ways to make yourself alluring to everyone you meet, including how to make a man feel good about himself.
The twenty-first century’s answer to Emily Post, the Countess gives a new generation of women a lively and incomparable guide to modern social graces.
