Countess LuAnn deLesseps knows firsthand that class is state of mind, not a birthright. Raised in small-town Connecticut—half French- Canadian, half Native American—she worked as a registered 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 TV personality. After three years of absorbing continental manners and style, she began a fairy-tale romance with Alexandre Count deLesseps, a French aristocrat of the Suez Canal dynasty, and married into a world of aristocrats.
She learned during her time in Europe that panache comes from within—not from an antiquated manual. Now she shares her savvy advice and her inspiring story in Class with the Countess, a guide in three parts, 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 Others Comfortable: covering dazzling opening lines, correct table manners, and the protocols of giving and receiving gifts
- 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
