Check Out the Best of Luann de Lesseps' Sizzling Bikini and Swimsuit Photos
The RHONY alum loves to flaunt her fabulous figure in her collection of scorching swimsuits.
When she’s not taking the Cabaret stage in a sparkling Jovani gown, Luann de Lesseps often finds herself soaking up the sun in a teeny string bikini. The Real Housewives of New York City alum knows she looks equally fabulous scantily clad in a swimsuit — and she’s not afraid to flaunt it in a sizzling Instagram snap.
Haters gonna hate, but Luann won’t let a nasty troll bring her down. In April, when one follower told the 58-year-old she was “way too old” to pose in a bikini, Luann fired back with the best response.
“I’m proud of the fact that I can still rock a bikini at this age!” Luann, who will star with Sonja Morgan in Luann and Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake (premiering July 9 at 9/8c), said in a video response. “Women should be able to wear whatever they want at any age, as long as they feel good.”
Luann then put the cherry on her response by restating one of her most iconic lines: “So be cool, don’t be like… all uncool!”
In honor of that, we’re celebrating the Countess by bringing you her best bikini and swimsuit photos of all time. Her scorching swim style consists of solid-color swimsuits in classic silhouettes (she’s partial to a triangle-top string bikini), which she accessorizes with chic hats, oversized sunglasses, and (of course) statement necklaces.
Here are Luann’s hottest swimwear photos:
Luann’s Backless One-Piece in St. Barts
Luann took to Instagram on May 31 to show off a black one-piece swimsuit, which had a completely open and low-cut back. She paired the swimsuit with a straw hat with a long black tie around the brim and wide-rim sunglasses. In the background, the turquoise water seemed to stretch for miles, making way for a lush island in the distance.
Luann’s Gingham Bikini at Chateau Marmont
A weekend stay at the Chateau Marmont — the iconic luxury hotel located in West Hollywood — provided the perfect opportunity for a bikini photo shoot, whether or not there was water nearby. In a series of April 21 snaps, Luann posed in a red and white gingham two-piece with a bustier-style top and string bottoms. In the first photo, she topped her swimsuit with a white jean jacket and posed in the dining room. In the second, she struck a sexy pose while leaning on the oven in the kitchen.
Luann’s Yellow String Bikini from a Mexico Trip
A sexy slow-motion video? For Luann, it’s no sweat. The Cabaret star shared just that in a March 18 Instagram post, in which a yellow bikini-clad Lu emerged from a pool in Mexico. Along with her string-tie suit, Luann donned dark sunglasses, two pendant necklaces, and gold bangles.
Luann’s White Bikini aboard a Yacht in Miami
A smoldering March 13 snap depicted the Countess enjoying the sights from aboard a yacht. Her boat-day attire included a tiny white two-piece with string ties, a matching white wide-brim hat, black cat-eye sunglasses, and a long beaded necklace that dangled past her belly button. In the caption, Luann quipped she was “diving into Monday” during her Miami trip.
Luann and Victoria de Lesseps' Bikinis in Tulum
In a January 15 pic, Luann posed oceanside in Tulum with her daughter, Victoria de Lesseps, while the duo donned coordinated stringy swimsuits. Luann’s was white and paired with a fringed crossbody bag, white Panama hat, and sunglasses. Victoria, for her part, stunned in an olive green two-piece, a blue baseball cap, and a collection of beaded necklaces.
“Beach with my peach,” the mom captioned the sweet snap.
Luann’s Blue Embellished Bikini
On January 13, the “Money Can’t Buy You Class” singer struck a sultry pose while wearing a cobalt two-piece swimsuit with gold chain embellishments and gold beads. Her beachy waves were tossed to one side, while she showed off her black sunglasses and long necklaces in one Instagram photo. In another, she donned a wide-brim black hat. Behind her, the ocean was a bright turquoise in the distance.
“Hola,” she wrote alongside the pic.
Luann’s “Pre-Show” Black Bikini in California
The Cabaret performer showed her Instagram fans exactly what her pre-show routine looks like in a December 2022 photo, taken in Beverly Hills. She stunned in a solid black bikini with double straps that were affixed with gold hardware while she posed on a balcony overlooking a pool. Her ensemble also included statement hoop earrings and a cuff bracelet.
Luann Black and Gold Bikini in an Outdoor Shower
Luann put her impressive six pack on display while going for a spray in an outdoor shower. The January 2021 Instagram video depicted the songstress splashing around in an ultra tiny black swimsuit and oversized round sunglasses.
“Taking a splash,” she wrote.
Luann Channeled J.Lo in a White Bikini
After Jennifer Lopez shared a jaw-dropping bikini photo in February 2020, Luann felt inspired to do the same. Nine days later she posed a side-by-side photo of J.Lo and herself each looking incredible in a similar white triangle-top bikini.
“50 is the new 40,” Luann noted, tagging Lopez (who was 50 at the time). We can’t argue with that!
Luann’s Black Monikini in Miami
A solid black one-piece with a large side cutout suited Luann while she strolled down the Florida coastline, as captured in a February 2019 Instagram video. She accessorized the swim look with large black cats-eye sunglasses and a straw hat with a black ribbon.
“Soaking up some sun,” she wrote. “Loving Miami.”
Luann’s Black and White Bikini
It was another day, another boat slay for Luann in this August 2018 Instagram post. The mom’s mismatched bikini look included a black bustier-style top with a dainty white floral design and teeny white bottoms with string ties. She picked a matching black and white hat to top off the look, also adding a dangling necklace and large round sunglasses.
“I love and do a great job navigating the sea,” Luann captioned the series of photos, which also showed her taking the wheel. “If any boat in Cartagena is hiring a captain, please let me know!”
