Luxury Sailor style lingerie by What Katie Did

What katie did sailor

With What Katie Did and Agent Provocateur they seem both to love their Sailor suits as  below shows.  While some burlesque and pin-up style underwear can be a little over the top and therefore it becomes impossible to wear, What Katie Did who are masters of treading the line between retro kitsch and practicality – deliver.

Agent Provocateur’s new lingerie campaign sees women enslave men to attend their every whim…oh yes please!

According to the Daily Mail recently they wrote the following – Women take over the world (WE ALREADY OWN IT!!) – or at least the woods – in Agent Provocateur’s latest lingerie and swimwear campaign, The Call of the Sirens…

Starring flame-haired supermodel Karen Elson as queen of the sirens along with her blonde and brunette ‘sirenettes’, the campaign, staged in an mist-wreathed forest – depicts ‘a decadent world where women are bold, fearless and liberated and men enslaved to attend their every whim’, say Agent Provocateur.

In one frame, Karen Elson, wearing a tartan and broderie anglaise lingerie set and ribbed white suspenders, subdues a knight who lies prostrate on the floor; in another, the model pins a hapless male model to the floor with her stilettos while she’s crowned with a thorn wreath. Even more fittingly, one of the enslaved male models has the surname Slave. How Dickensian.

With recent news reports suggesting lingerie sales are bucking trends related to the economic downturn, this lavish campaign marks the beginning of another successful season for Agent Provocateur.

The firm last week reported that it was ‘going from strength to strength’ as British couples keep recession at bay in the bedroom.  The company’s total sales have grown by 8 per cent since the end of March last year, despite the increasing pressure on retailers elsewhere.

Chief executive Garry Hogarth said: ‘Agent Provocateur is going from strength to strength. Despite the challenges of the global economic environment, we continue to trade strongly.’

Britain’s Got talent is back and so is Amanda Holden spilling the beans

Amanda has apparently said the following “Why Simon Cowell drinks green slime. Why Kelly Brook had to go. And what she really thinks of the co-star who exposed her affair.”

Tease: Amanda Holden revels in a spot of banter

Agent Provacateur – Marine Body – £395

Seductive silk cashmere body suit in a playful sailor style. This flattering knitted body suit features eye-catching contrast white stripe and frill detail on the collar, cuffs and legs, and is completed with a white cashmere tie for pure pin-up glamour. A clever mock button-down flap at the centre front disguises a popper fastening at the bottom front.

Amanda Holden love her or hate her she is back on our television sets on Saturday night besides Mr. Cowell and Mr. Morgan with two big mouthed and self opinionated judges Amanda fits right in!  Piers Morgan espeically that frankly gets on my T*** – a man so inflated with self-importance he could practically float – has met his match in her!

Amanda added by saying “Piers can be such a pompous pain in the a**e,’ she laments. ‘When it comes to giving his opinion on an act, he never stops talking. We just want a “yes” or “no”, and he’ll drone on, using up all the adjectives I’d thought of.”

I don’t know how he was ever a newspaper editor. He needs editing himself. He’ll start talking about the “youth of today” when no one gives a damn and it’s all going to get cut anyway. Simon will say, “You’re so dull and boring”, and then they’ll have a big row about who has the best car, who has the best ratings on what show, who has the best gig.

‘Even when they both appeared wearing suits for the show’s promotional shoot, they were needling each other. Simon said, “This is how you wear a suit, Piers.” Piers always wears a suit, even when we go out socially.

I’d like to see him lighten up and try a really good tailored jacket with a T-shirt. He’s only 43, but he seems so much older, as if he’s carrying the weight of the world on his many chins.’ (Oops! I think she means ‘shoulders’.)

Piers, she reflects, has had an indecent amount of good luck. Small wonder he’s smug: he’s reached mid-life without the crisis. ‘He’s got money, fantastic cars, a beautiful girlfriend – and I can’t believe he’s made it in the US. [He also sits on the judging panel of America’s Got Talent.]

I want that for myself. I do hate his jamminess – and yes, I bloody well would like to go over there!’ she shrieks in mock indignation. ‘I’ve dropped loads of hints to Simon. Piers has the best of both worlds: going off for a few weeks to the US, then flying back to London. I could do that. So how can I oust him? Kill him is the only way. I’ll hire a hit man, as I said I would ten years ago when he upset my whole life.’

But she and Piers do have a history. A decade ago, when her first marriage to comedian Les Dennis was in its death throes, Amanda had an affair with actor Neil Morrissey. Piers, who was then editor of the Daily Mirror – a post from which he was sacked in 2004 – set his paparazzi on the illicit lovers and splashed their hitherto secret liaison all over his paper.


The expose caused hurt to Dennis and besmirched actress Amanda’s golden girl image. Much water has passed under the bridge since then: both are now happily ensconced with new partners and children. Amanda married music producer Chris Hughes last December with their three-year old daughter, Lexi, acting as a flower girl. And her ex-husband is engaged with an 11- month-old daughter.

Christina Aguilera shows off her curves in leopard-print leotard

Christina Aguilera has never shied away from jazzing up her performance with a show-stopping outfit and this one from Agent Provocateur is no exception.  Last week she headed to a gig in a leopard-print leotard, fishnets and knee-high boots. Very sexy!

She wore the revealing ensemble to sing at the 31st birthday party of celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.

Figure-hugging: Christina Aguilera looked trim and toned in a leopard-print leotard and fishnets as she headed to the Viper Room in West Hollywood.   With a bevy of bare-chested male dancers sharing the stage, she made sure her attire was suitably eye-catching.

The leotard is part of the Agent Provocateur ‘Season of the witch’ range and was first seen on Daisy Lowe.


Daisy, who models for the collection along with Peaches Geldof, wore the daring garment on the catwalk during the Fashion for Relief charity event which Naomi Campbell organised for London Fashion Week.

Christina Aguilera goes shopping at Agent Provocateur – and maybe getting a few sexy pieces.

She may have just had a baby a mere 14 months ago and now the proud mother of a bouncing baby, but Christina being Christina  won’t be ditching her sexy persona any time soon.   Christina  is determined not to let motherhood affect her sex life with her husband of three years, Jordan Bratman.   Christina was spotted looking at some of the Agent Provocateur ranges and you can see her here checking out the swimwear in West Hollywood yesterday afternoon.

Christians was dressed casually in a pair of light blue jeans, stripy t-shirt and baggy white shirt, Christina left baby son Max in the care of his father while she enjoyed a girlie afternoon shopping with a blonde female pal.    After enjoying lunch at Italian eaterie La Scala in Beverly Hills, the two women visited trendy Hollywood store Fred Segal, before moving on to Agent Provocateur.   Christina peruses a selection of babydoll nighties and bras at the store, including a red and black polka dot swimwear bra top which appeared to be inspired by Minnie Mouse.

Cara Short Slip

Cara Slip fro £145

The pop star has been a fan of Agent Provocateur for several years and has been spotted buying lingerie from the chain of boutiques in New York, LA and London.   On Saturday, she stepped out in a leopard-print body by the label at gossip blogger Perez Hilton’s birthday party.

Christina has apparently openly spoken about her sex life with husband Jordan and admits she likes to dress up for him – saucy minx!!!!   She told Maxim magazine two years ago: ‘I like to play doctor. I got Jordan a doctor’s outfit with a doctor’s bag full of sex toys. I wore the naughty nurse’s costume, of course.’   Since the arrival of Max in January last year, Christina and Jordan have worked extra hard to ensure they find time for themselves.

She told Glamour magazine: ‘We make sure we have mommy and daddy nights out. Our child comes first, obviously, but there are certain things you can do.   ‘Once we know he’s in good hands, we go out late at night and have a few drinks. Then we’ll come home, dim the lights and do our thing… and I’m not going into any more detail than that.’  Christina is currently recording her fourth studio album, a follow-up to her 2006 hit Back To Basics. She has described the disc as ‘short, sweet and completely different’ after the retro sound of her Back To Basis album.

Lily Allen Flashing once again – Camera and smile it will make the news

Cheeky Lily Allen goes for a revealing blue outfit for G-A-Y performance

As far as outfits go Lily Allen usually grabs the headlines. But her latest must take the biscuit for the most shocking.   The Smile singer bared her backside in a electric blue Little-Bo-Peep costume and stockings. The outfit consisted of a frilly top, lacy knickers and matching blue stockings, coupled with a pair of towering beige platform heels.

Braving the cold, Lily certainly attracted attention


Cheeky Girl

The sharp colours continued with the star donning bright pink lips and nails, contrasted by her dark long hair.  The cheeky number was in aid of her performance at G-A-Y but it didn’t stop the 23-year-old wearing it out for a night of celebrating at nightspot Bungalow 8.  Lily, who has played at G-A-Y once before, performed classics from Alright, Still as well as tracks from her new album, It’s Not Me, It’s You.  And she lived up to her feisty reputation by returning to the stage for an encore dressed as Britney Spears to perform a cover of Womaniser.  The gesture was a dig at Britney who failed to perform live at G-A-Y in December. Her performance at G-A-Y comes in the wake of an interview with the Gay Times in which she said she once kissed identical lesbian twins.

Do you reckon she has a Brazilian
This is not the first time I have shown this outfit on my blog as Peaches as in Geldof wore the very same outfit with white hold ups and red/pink knickers in the Agent Provocateur catwalk.

Maggie Gyllenhaal – back in 2007 was the new face of Agent Provocateur

The London-based firm Agent Provocateur way back 2007 chose Maggie Gyllenhaal as their new face. Following Kate Moss, Kylie Minogue and Dita Von Teese, Maggie represented their then new line of Agent Provocateur.

Maggie  isn’t your regular model as we all know.   Serena Rees, co-founder of Agent Provocateur apparently said, “Maggie is not an obvious sex-symbol. She is interesting looking, confident and beautiful in a way that is non-threatening, which makes her appealing to men and women alike”.  Hence the reason why she adorned their adverstising campaign, since that time their has been a long list of ladies that have stripped off as some as my blog entries will testify…


Of course there will always be one camp that thinks ort thought that themphotos were great and yet another camp who slate them.  Saying that they are rubbish!!!! Or words along that line.  One commentor wrote, “I don’t think it is a bad thing that a non-model can become the covermodel. I just don’t find the picture to be that great. Maggie has a sexy and radiant look on the red carpet, but on these pictures she looks creepy”.

In the pictures shot for the campaign, Maggie poses in sexy lingerie, while lying in a bath or chained to a chair. The pictures are clearly inspired on Maggie’s daring role in the movie ‘The Secretary’, in which she playes a timid secretary who starts a S&M-relationship with her boss.

Although not everyone will agree with Maggie beeing the right choice for the campaign,
we found her to be a breathe of fresh air. Showing off here great body in quite revealing outfits, she nevertheless leaves plenty to the imagination. Sexy, chique and bold with a twist of naughtiness. That is simply the best way tot describe the classy images of Maggie, as well as the lingerie.
