The fashion-forward First Lady denies splurging on luxury lingerie.

Looks like the West Wing isn't as wild as reports have suggested.

The White House is slamming rumors that First Lady Michelle Obama and the Queen of Qatar shut down part of New York City's Madison Avenue so that they could indulge in a $50,000 shopping spree at Agent Provocateur, the Daily Mail reports.

"This story is 100 percent false," the First Lady's Director of Communications, Kristina Schake, tells the paper following a report in the Telegraph that a visit from Mrs. Obama—which "risked the wrath of cash-strapped Americans"—had helped boost the lingerie brand's sales by 12.5 percent.

Agent Provocateur is also denying the claims.

"Recent claims regarding Michelle Obama and purchases made at an Agent Provocateur boutique are incorrect," a spokesman tells the Daily Mail.

"Agent Provocateur never discusses any of its clientele or their purchases."

Bet Nancy Reagan never had these problems!
