Michelle Obama Did Not Spend $50,000 on Agent Provocateur Lingerie

Fairchild Archive

Earlier today, the Telegraph reported that Michelle Obama closed down high-end lingerie store Agent Provocateur in NYC, then spent $50,000 on their luxury pieces (lacy nighties, see-through bras).

Now the White House is denying the claims, telling the Daily Mail that the story is "100 percent false." But that's some tricky wording, because while they're asserting that Mrs. Obama neither spent $50,000 nor closed down the whole store, they're not saying she was never there.

We can totally imagine Mrs. Obama shopping at Agent Provocateur; $490 bondage-style playsuits aside, they have some really pretty, refined lingerie. Like this delicate Chantilly lace bra or this polka dot printed pair of undies. So we couldn't blame the First Lady for going on a major, major shopping spree there. (Just maybe not $50,000-worth of major, because really, the woman's got to save some money for her brooches and one-shoulder tops.)
