FOLLOWING in the footsteps of Katherine Jenkins and Kim Cattrall, actress and former Vogue cover girl Mischa Barton will this weekend open the Harrods summer sale.
“It’s really exciting and it should be really fun,” Barton, who also has her own handbag line, told VOGUE.COM ahead of the renowned shopping event. “Harrods is iconic and a great buy during a blowout sale is a girl’s dream come true. That said, not only is it an honour to be asked to open its annual sale, but something I’m truly looking forward to.”
And what about sale-shopping tips?
“Look for staples,” advises the actress – noting a Topshop leather jacket to be one of her own best sale buys.
Arriving in horse-drawn carriage, Barton will be welcomed by Mohamed Al Fayed before taking the all-important tour of the store.
“I love London style – it’s nice and eclectic. I see, in my future, spending a lot of time in the UK,” added Barton.
