Countess LuAnn hosts the 2(x)ist 2012 Spring Fashion Show in New York

In what looked like a scene from one of her famous music videos, The Real Housewives of New York City‘s LuAnn de Lesseps got really friendly with some really hunky and really almost nude dudes while hosting the 2(x)ist Spring 2012 Runway Show held at the Hiro Ballroom in New York City Wednesday night. “Chic C’est La Vie” when you are The Countess!

2(x)ist is an American fashion label famous for its line of designer underwear and they partnered with ZERO, the project to end prostate cancer, to put on the elaborate and intentionally a bit campy production featuring looks from their Sport, Military, Brite, Primal, Touch, and Plaid & Tartan collections. The finale was a preview of 2(x)ist’s latest venture, their 2012 swimwear line.

In addition to playing the part of an emerald green “material girl,” Countess LuAnn emceed the event with her usual flair. Here’s a video clip of the beginning of the show recorded from the audience:

There was no sign of LuAnn’s new beau Jacques Azoulay. Perhaps he wanted to avoid all the Jacques strap and Assyoulay jokes? Either way, it appears as though The Countess had a great time as did her handlers in what, by numerous online accounts, was a huge success for the fashion label.

Here are a couple more photos of The Countess and her court:
