White House: Michelle Obama's Lavish Lingerie Shopping Spree 'False'

White House Calls First Lady’s Lingerie Story “100 percent false.”


According to a number of British newspapers, Michelle Obama recently spent some time crafting her own version of a stimulus plan.

The Telegraph, The Sun and The Daily Mail claim that first lady Michelle Obama spent $50,000 at a New York City lingerie boutique some time last year. The reports say that Michelle Obama closed off part of Agent Provocateur, located on Madison Avenue in the Manhattan section of New York, with Sheikaha Mozah, the Queen of Qatar.

After the report surfaced, Kristina Schake, Michelle Obama's director of communications, told multiple outlets the story is "100 percent false."

The Sun tried to get Agent Provocateur's CEO Gary Hogwarth to reveal the store's secret cilent list, but he would only say the brand has attracted a number of "unexpected famous names," especially in the U.S.

The store, which has attracted singers Beyonce Knowles and Christina Aguilera in months past, sells their items for anywhere from $150 to $2,000.

Hogwarth says the store plans to be aggressive in the upcoming year, opening 20 new stores across the world.
