Fierce FLOTUS
The First Lady does a mean push-up. Read More »

There’s a report going around that FLOTUS Michelle Obama spent $50,000 recently at high-end fancy lady lingerie shop Agent Provacateur. Annnnd that thanks to Mrs. Obama’s splurge, the store is enjoying increased sales all around. The shopping spree supposedly happened last year at the store’s Madison Avenue location, when the First Lady took the Queen of Qatar, Sheikha Mozah, on a shopping trip. 

But! Michelle Obama is better known for splurging at Target — not at luxury lingerie shops. She puts forth the image of being thrifty and down-to-earth, not egregiously spendy. And! Agent Provacateur doesn’t typically ever release their famous client list. So this seems overblown. It does , however, fit with our collective fantasy of the FLOTUS and POTUS having really sexy sex.

Paz De La Huerta Glamourizes The Crotch Shot

Paparazzi aren’t just slimeballs — they’re also very lucky! [NYmag.com] Keep reading »

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, which is something of an inversion of the whole female-as-object way of doing sexy things previously. Now as for that BVD-clad man bouncing on the bed? We’re not so sure that’d be worth replaying. [Copyranter] Keep reading »

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 about wearing something “slinky” and “cheeky” and pointed to the legendarily naughty Agent Provocateur’s new Soirée line, which AP proclaims the “pinnacle of luxury.” Among the eye-popping ensembles is this Fonda Playsuit & Pasties. The cost of white bondage straps, leather pasties, and crystal strands? A whopping $2,790. Hey, if you can afford it (and pull it off), why not go for it? [The Red Sole Bride] Keep reading »

Agent Provocateur’s Heloise Corset Might Drive Men Away (Or Impale Them)

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 more daring look wear it with our Nikita brief,” the company suggests. Wear this in public? You might brush up against someone at a bar and accidentally impale her. If the spikes don’t scare you off, the price might: $4,900. Thanks, but we’ll stick to less dangerous (and less expensive) lace lingerie options. [via Luxist] Keep reading »

One Dirty, Diiirrtttyyy Cardigan

Agent Provocateur is now selling a $500 penis cardigan. Yeah, you heard me right, a $500 penis cardigan. Just what your wardrobe needs, you say? I knew it. I must have psychic powers—call up Dionne Warwick at the the Psychic Friends Network! Oh, and if you’re more of a sweater set type of gal, there’s a matching $290 top, too. Pearl necklace, um, uh, not included. [Racked] Keep reading »

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 an excuse to dress as slutty as possible. The undies brand launched their newest superhero-inspired collection just in time for the holiday celebration. Sexy Tarantula? Check. Racy Reptile? Also there. Keep reading »

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 ladies have lived without men for centuries, but now they’re out of semen and on the brink of extinction.)

Do you think it’s clever when brands do more than buy ads in magazines to get people to buy their wares? Or is this catalog in the form of a comic book a total waste of Agent Provocateur’s money? [Agent Provocateur via View On Fashion] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Attack Of The Semi-Naked Models

To celebrate the launch of their “New World Order” line of lingerie, Agent Provocateur deposited a fleet of underwear models wearing leather, thigh-high boots in front of the department store Selfridges and managed to literally stop traffic. Wonder why? [9/16/09, London] Keep reading »

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 appeal that’s inherent in the label. MAC makeup artist Chantel Miller looked to recreate the kind of sultriness, with an expensive edge, you’d find in a ’70s-era Playboy (which is certainly my personal favorite decade for the mag, but no one’s asking, so …). Anyhoo. “Before I spoke to anyone regarding the makeup for the show, the word ‘sex’ came to mind,” Miller told us. Naturally. Pasquale (it’s just “Pasquale,” thanks), one of our favorite hairstylists, was there dousing girls’ hair in Davines hairspray and he totally concurred. We love the makeup Miller used: Hefty doses of Golden Lemon and Golden Olive Pigment (the turquoise effect was from the light) and a blend of Cherry liner, Crimson Lipmix and Burgundy Lipmix on the models’ kissers. But while we had her attention, our minds turned to more carnal — and realistic matters — so we also begged her to tell us what kind of makeup to wear when we’re pretty sure we’re gonna get laid and don’t want to look too shameful on the walk home. Her professional opinion, after the jump! Keep reading »
