The Drudge Report took a break for slamming Newt Gingrich to attacking First Lady Michelle Obama for allegedly spending $50,000 (£31,794) at luxury lingerie store Agent Provocateur in one shopping spree.
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.
Gary Hogarth, Agent Provocateur’s chief executive, refused to be drawn on the store’s closely kept “secret client list”. But he admitted the brand had attracted a high number of “unexpected famous names” – especially in the US, where sales have overtaken the UK.
On the back of this growth, Agent Provocateur, which is owned by listed private equity firm 3i, is launching an aggressive expansion strategy with more than 20 new shops opening globally in 2012. Source: UK Telegraph
Has anyone questioned how much money Ann Romney spends when she goes shopping? Or even past first ladies such as Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush?
