The First Lady better known for shopping at more modestly-priced High Street stores along with the Queen of Qatar, Sheikha Mozah, closed off part of Madison Avenue to spend time in the luxury lingerie shop. Their purchases contributed to a market-spanking 12.5pc lift in sales.
Agent Provocateur, which is styled on vintage Hollywood glamour, sells handmade Calais lace corsets that sell for up to £900, which could ruffle the feathers of more than just President Barack Obama in an election year.

Doonan got the pleasure of meeting the first lady when he decorated the White House for the Obamas’ first District Christmas back in 2009. He retells that story in his new book “Gay Men Don’t Get Fat,” which he’s coming to D.C. to promote this week.
