HIT THE BRAKES: Agent Provocateur literally stopped traffic with a Sunday night party at their Madison Avenue boutique. Taxis slowed to a crawl as they drove past, all the better for drivers to ogle the several lingerie-clad dancers shaking their moneymakers in the store’s windows. “We had a group of policemen watching outside and pounding their fists against the glass!” Sarah Shotton, the creative director of the brand said with a laugh. The party marked the brand’s recent collaboration with Joséphine de la Baume, who Shotton described as “sexy and intelligent.…she’s even a little bit naughty! Perfect for us.” Dancers in lingerie, pasties and cowboy hats “shot” partygoers with bananas or twirled on poles near guests who included Fern Mallis, Andrew Andrew, Cory Kennedy and Mark “The Cobrasnake” Hunter. “There’s something really rock ’n’ roll about Agent Provocateur,” said a grinning de la Baume. “Also, in the video we shot they use my music! So yeah, rock ’n’ roll. Perfect.”
