Luann de Lesseps cuts an elegant figure in a white tuxedo for the benefit of the Tom of Finland Foundation
She was told that she was drinking a vodka drink in the trailer earlier this week for the twelfth season of The Real Housewives Of New York.
But Luann de Lesseps looked somewhat muffled on Friday when she attended the Tom of Finland Foundations Art Benefit in Los Angeles.
The 54-year-old reality star was accompanied by her daughter Victoria de Lesseps when they celebrated the organization that wants to preserve and protect erotic art.

Luann looked sleek and elegant in a low-cut white tuxedo with black lapel.
She dressed her look with a pair of black sneakers and added some flair to her look with a pair of large gold earrings.
The cabaret singer supported her daughter Victoria de Lesseps, who set up a sultry display with a pure black shirt over a black bustier, which she combined with matching pants.
The artist, whose work contains many erotic components, wore her dark locks in messy curls and covered with a rippling pure green cloak.

Pioneer: Durk Dehner (standing) helped found the Tom of Finland Foundation, which evolved from preserving the work of the artist who was known for his homo-erotic drawings to preserving all erotic art
Interface: Luann hobnobbed with artists in favor
The Tom of Finland Foundation was founded by the artist of the same name, whose real name was Touko Laaksonen.
He was best known for gay erotic drawings of men with muscles, often in motorcyclists.
The organization originally preserved its own artworks, but its mission eventually extended to the preservation of all erotic artworks, and it mentions promoting “more tolerant views about sexuality” as one of the main goals.
Helping hand: the RHONY star supported her daughter Victoria, an artist
Risqué: her work often contains erotic components, a perfect fit for the base
Striking: Victoria gave a show with her green outfit for photographers
The event included live performances for attendees, along with a display of erotic art.
Victoria took the opportunity to set up a show as she wrapped her green cover, while her mother bumped with artists.
Luann returns to Bravo for season 12 of RHONY on April 2.
The new season misses long-term cast member Bethenny Frankel, who was there from the start, although she broadcast seasons four through six.
Fashion designer and married to Mob’s CEO, Leah McSweeney, will join the series instead.
Fascinating: the event contained live performance art, as well as erotic paintings that adorn the walls
