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.

Watch out, Britney, you’re not the only girl in Hollywood flaunting the crotch shot. “Boardwalk Empire”‘s Paz de la Huerta shows us ladies how it’s done (thigh highs, garter, matching bra and panties) in this new sexy new ad for Agent Provocateur. Paparazzi aren’t just slimeballs — they’re also very lucky! [NYmag.com] Keep reading »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
