Agent Provocateur Promotes Female Voyeurism

We don’t know about you, but we think this new Agent Provocateur commercial starring model Kristy Hume as a lady voyeur who isn’t afraid to videotape what she wants is pretty darn steamy. Confusing also! It seems the girl known as Betty Sue likes to watch more than she likes to make love,…

Would You Pay Thousands For Lingerie?

The other day, I was reading the Red Sole Bride blog, which always has the most amazing wedding and bridal items. She asked her readers: “Brides, have you thought of wearing something special for your husband-to-be on your wedding night (other than your wedding gown)?” Rather than something strictly bridal for the bedroom, she wondered…

Lingerie doesn’t take much material to make, yet for some reason it costs a pretty penny. Take Agent Provocateur’s Heloise Corset. This halter neck corset is made from ribbed duchess satin and lined in black leather, with hand-embellished biker studs and two-inch metal spikes. “Wear it with jeans for an evening out, or for a…

Agent Provocateur Makes Halloween Easy

Halloween is right around the corner, and I’ll readily admit that my costume has yet to be decided. Agent Provocateur must be counting on the fact that girls all over will not only wait until the last minute to decide their alter ego for the night, but also on the idea that Halloween is a…

Agent Provocateur Dresses Comic Book Characters To Sell Lingerie

The women in comic books have a tendency to be scantily clad, buxom babes (i.e., Barbarella). Lingerie brand Agent Provocateur is capitalizing on this rule of thumb by creating its own graphic novel with characters that wear the label’s skimpy bedroom clothes while saving the world from extinction. (According to the plot line, the ladie…

What Kind Of Makeup To Wear If You’re Going To Get Laid

Yesterday eve we went backstage at Agent Provocateur’s show–our favorite purveyors of classy yet kinky underthings and beyond–to see how the hair and makeup team were going to be able to make a strong statement against all that studded leather and French lace dusted with Swarovski crystals. The answer? They stayed true to the sex…

Kate Moss is the face of Agent Provocateur’s bridal line, and the company has been releasing “artsy” video shorts over the past few days to go along with the print ads.
