Michelle Obama Drops $50K on Luxury Drawers

First Lady Michelle Obama and her ME posse reportedly spent so much cash at the Madison Ave, NYC lady's lingerie purveyor, Agent Provocateur, that sales jumped more than 12% with Mickey O laying down $50,000 for underwear in one shopping spree.

The Telegraph is reporting:
The First Lady ... 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.
Agent Provocateur's chief executive, Gary Hogarth, declined to identify anyone on the "secret client list," admitting, however, the AP brand has attracted many "unexpected famous names," especially in the US. Lacking any hard evidence Mrs. Obama was actually at the knickers emporium, we can only trust that eyewitnesses are being truthful.

If they are, then one could further speculate in this election year Mickey O was shopping from the Campaign Collection again showing a natural callous disregard for the the plight of scores of millions Americans who are unemployed, under-employed, and the more than 45 million Americans on food stamps as a result of Barack Obama's stimulus package. Apparently, Michelle has a different kind of stimulus in mind for the president's package.

This is BS when you imply Michelle Obama drops $50K on lingerie. It was probably Queen of Qatar, Sheikha Mozah who did most of the spendig.

I didn't imply anything. The report plainly stated Michelle's share of the bill was $50,000. The other women paid for their own knickers. The total of all the women boosted the stores take by 12%.
