Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, the Sag Harbor resident and Real Housewives of New York City cast member, attended former Housewife Jill Zarin‘s third annual Luxury Luncheon at her residence in Southampton on Saturday, July 18. She was spotted wearing a white pantsuit and navy blue push-up bra and what appeared to be a snakeskin clutch. Of course Housewives and other Bravolebrities—including Ramona Singer, Aviva Drescher, Cindy Barshop, Patti Stanger, Cynthia Bailey, Carla Stephens and Dorinda Medley—were in attendance as well.
