The Countess of reality television is ready to take over the billboard charts once again, and she's taking along for the ride.

Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps came on the scene as the newest reality songstress last year with her debut song, Money Can't Buy You Class, and is following up that hit with her newest dance single Chic C'est La Vie, and got an exclusive backstage pass for the photo shoot with celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz.

And you'd expect nothing less than glamour as the Countess got professionally primped and channeled a little inspiration from iconic screen siren Sophia Loren while she playfully posed in front of the camera in four equally stunning gowns and sparkling jewels.

"Mike Ruiz is the perfect photographer because we wanted it to feel very glamorous, very '30s Hollywood movie star, very Sophia Loren, very sophisticated, elegant," the Countess told "I'm very excited to be feeling Sophia right now."

The Countess hopes to hit another musical high note with Chic C'est La Vie to be released this spring, which she says is "about traveling, sophistication, the jet set" but also exudes "confidence and cool."

She even shared a few lyrics: "Beauty class and elegance lies within the soul. Money, power and romance are waiting for us all."

The Countess also hinted at a jazz album in her future, and gave fans a sneak peek of who she'll be sharing the mic with this Housewives season.

"I got to work with an icon in the music industry this season which you will see, but I can't tell you who that is," she revealed. "I got to work with one of the most iconic women in music and she suggested to me because of my voice and my vocal qualities that I work more in jazz which is something I love. I love jazz and I love cabaret so I would like to maybe work on a jazzy cabaret album."
