Luann de Lesseps Shows What She Looked Like 19 Years Ago

Luann shared an incredible throwback photo from her pre-Real Housewives days.

Luann De Lesseps Throwback

Before she was headlining her own cabaret show titled "Countess and Friends" and taking the Big Apple by storm on The Real Housewives of New York City, Luann de Lesseps led a different life.

How to Watch

In Luann's past life, the singer worked as a registered nurse and a model, and held the title of Countess. For those who have been living under a rock, Luann was previously married to married French entrepreneur and aristocrat Count Alexandre de Lesseps, who she shares two children with, Victoria and Noel. Recently, Luann blessed us with a blast from the past from her earlier days as Countess — and it is a treasure.

On Sunday, March 1, Luann shared a throwback pic from 19 years ago. The black and white family portrait featured herself, Alexandre, Victoria, and Noel. "2001 before the housewives. #rhony #blackandwhite," she captioned the photo.

The retro pic led us to several discoveries about Luann: 1) The cabaret singer hasn't aged a day in almost 20 years. 2) She's clearly always had fab taste in style — just look at that classic knit turtleneck. (Of course, today her wardrobe probably includes a lot more feather boas and sequin cabaret dresses.) 3) She was born to rock a short layered lob.

We weren't the only ones taken aback by Luann's old photo. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi commented, "Wow! Stunning.

Fellow NYC 'Wife Sonja Morgan added, "You haven’t changed."

This post also comes just days after Luann shared photo proof that her abs are just as rock solid as Jennifer Lopez's in a teeny white bikini.
