Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was the hostess with the mostest last night at the Real Housewives of New York City Season 3 premiere party in NYC. The countess — who stunned in a mod take on a flapper mini dress by Malan Breton — mingled with guests, family, friends and of course her fellow housewives at hot spot La Pomme.

"I'm really excited to have my family here and to have all my friends, and all the housewives are here... except for a couple that couldn't make it," she said.

LuAnn's mom Rolande Nadeau and new boyfriend Jacques Azoulay were also at the event.

The countess and her new man danced the night away!

"He's so lovely," she said of the new leading man in her life. "He reads poetry, plays piano, speaks French. He's a dreamboat. We were in Paris for Valentine's Day. I feel really lucky. You can date, but to actually meet someone that you really like and want to spend time with is not easy."

LuAnn couldn't divulge whether Jacques will be on the season, but the couple is official off screen!

While veteran housewives Bethenny Frankel and Alex McCord were not in attendance, two new housewives — Sonja Morgan and Jennifer Gilbert — worked the crowd at the event.

"I'm having a really good season, and I'm having a lot fun," Kelly said. "I'm standing up for myself. Last season I didn't really have a lot of time to film, and I didn't want to film as much to be honest with you. I didn't know everybody. I was so intimidated by everybody, and I didn't want to play games."

"As a result people judged me in a certain way," Kelly continued. "Now they are going to see me. And I hope they like me and appreciate the life I'm so proud of."

Be sure to watch Real Housewives of New York Thursday nights on Bravo.
