According to the press release from MJM International, it was the company's board of directors who, after seeing Mrs Mone pose for an exclusive shoot with Hello! magazine, ditched the idea of hiring an expensive celebrity and persuaded her to front the new advertising campaign.
According to the company's most recent accounts, the board of directors consists of just four people Ms Mone, her husband, Michael Mone, the company's finance director, Catherine MacRae and Scott Kilday. Asked if, in fact, this was actually her own idea, a spokeswoman said: "No, no... not at all. Michelle has been very reticent."
Since the beginning of the year, Ms Mone, who has lost six stone and is marketing a new herbal supplement, TrimSecrets, as the cause of her weight loss, has been claiming that she planned to strip off and model her own underwear.
The Ultimo Couture, however, is a range of evening dresses which will be sold exclusively at Debenhams.
Ms Mone, 38, said: "I love getting glammed up for special occasions, but I was tired of spending a small fortune on dresses and wanted to bring affordable eveningwear to the high street.
"Being best known for lingerie, I also wanted to offer dresses that incorporate our bra expertise – so each of these designs feature unique inner support, which I know women will really appreciate.
The dress was provocative as it seemed to be made out of lace just like one of those honeymoon evening dresses up on sale. It was however an illusion dress as Venus would describe it, making it seem see-through when worn.
in part to what Supervisor of Student Services Lib Sells called the “Hannah Montana trend” in leggings — basically tights without feet — the county school system has amended its elementary, middle and high school dress codes.
Sells said she wants to be sure to get the word out about the changes before parents and students shop for clothes for the 2010-11 school year starting in August.
The elementary dress code was amended by adding the following language: “In grades 3, 4 and 5, short shorts, halter tops, midriff-baring shirts and strapless dresses/tops or spaghetti straps are not allowed. Leggings must be worn under another garment which meets dress code requirements.”
The Sullivan County Board of Education unanimously approved the changes at its May 10 meeting, where Sells mentioned the Hannah Montana wardrobe effect. That is the name of a character Cyrus plays on a Disney Channel show.
Sells said Cyrus and her character have made leggings popular with female students.
As if the near-death experience wasn't enough, Spirit was upstaged early on by its twin, Opportunity, which landed in a geologic gold mine and was the first to determine that the frigid, dusty planet possessed a wetter past.
Bad luck has fallen again on Spirit. As the workhorse rover marked its sixth year on the red planet yesterday, it finds itself stuck in a sand trap, perhaps forever. The six-wheel robot geologist has been in jams before, but this is the worst predicament yet.
With Martian winter arriving in several months, Spirit may not have enough power to keep going unless scientists can point the solar-powered rover toward the sun.
Spirit "has always been our drama queen," chief scientist Steve Squyres of Cornell University said.
NASA was dealt a major setback recently when another wheel appeared to have stopped moving, leaving Spirit with only four working wheels to plot its great escape.
"With only four driving wheels, it doesn't look good," project manager John Callas of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory said.
The latest misfortune occurred in April when Spirit, driving backward because of a lame wheel, broke through the crusty ground like a person falling through a frozen pond and became bogged in fluffy sand. Little progress has been made to free Spirit since.
