Isn’t Agent Provacateur the term Orwell gave to socialist spies during the Spanish Civil War in his excellent book Homage to Catalonia?

If so, not surprising that the First Commie would be shopping there.

Imagine the backlash in the press had Laura Bush done this.

How do you spend $50,000 on underwear? They must charge by the yard.

Ditto. Michelle in lingerie conjures up images that I really didn't need this morning.

To paraphrase Agent K in “Men in black”, “that’s one of a million images that I don’t want.”

There's this article in the Daily Mail and this article in The Telegraph. Both UK newspapers. Where is the American press on this. Can anybody find any US press outlets reporting this?

The Wookie is disgusting. I realize it's her money to spend as she sees fit, but this is really in your face.

Never mind Laura Bush - remember how the media made such a big deal over Sarah Palin’s cloths when she was campaigning? Someone found out that the Republican Party had spent $15k for cloths for her and her family for the campaign and the media painted her as some kind of high-mainteneance deva, which she actually had nothing to do with it.

There goes what little remained of Agent Provocateurs brand as an exclusive line of lingerie. It's being ghettoised just like Burberry was by the chavs in England.

Notice how they stopped photographing Moochelle next to all the real queens, princesses, etc.

Here's the queen of Qatar. She's 52 but looks better and definitely has more style than the Mooch ever did.

I don’t mind fancy joints like Provacateuror La Perla or Fogal etc

if you can afford them...I can’t this year

but this stuff is usually either a woman’s or gay man’s idea of lingerie that looks good on a woman...all lacey and frilly

it’s ok but I prefer randier wear...there is another pricey joint that makes really ribald wear....appropriately named: after kiki de montparnasse

http://www.kikidm.com/shop/home.php

but in the end....cheap thigh highs look as good in lovemaking light as expensive ones...ditto corsets and garters etc

even simple clothes combined with nudity are invitng...the proverbial white men’s shirt...a tanktop...plaid short skirt.....see thru blouse...all men get this...it’s as natural to us as breathing

I cannot imagine spending 50k on any clothing spree

Just part of the campaign to win The Won back to a heterosexual lifestyle. Couldn’t possibly go wrong.

A Wookie in see-through lingerie? That must be stomach-turning! Fortunately, I am unable to visualize such an unnatural sight.

No one said she was buying it for herself. I doubt they carry her size anyway. Barky though will be ecstatic and tickled pink at his Valentine's Day gift.

It's not a cargo net, but I think you have nailed it!

Yes but, that is a lot of material for the First Clydesdale. Probably has to be made.
