Pop star Christina Aguilera opened the summer sale at the famous Harrods store in London today.
The singer sparked a huge scrum as hundreds of fans and shoppers jostled to catch a glimpse of the blonde as she wandered around the exclusive store on the first day of the summer sale.
The 23-year-old followed in the footsteps of Victoria Beckham and Pierce Brosnan, who have previously cut the ribbon at the Knightsbridge shop.
Wearing a white Marilyn Monroe style Carlos Miele strapless dress and black patent-leather heels by Giuseppe Zanotti, the American stopped to try on a £37,600 (€56,000) Piaget 18-carat white gold necklace set with diamonds, reduced to £18,000 (€27,000), and then walked around the store with it on.
She also tried on a diamond-set 18-carat white gold Audemars Piguet watch reduced from £308,100 (€462,522) to £124,000 (€186,000).
Harrods’ boss Mohamed Al Fayed walked hand-in-hand with the star, whose last album Stripped sold 10 million copies worldwide, on the traditional walkabout, after she arrived in a open-topped horse-drawn carriage.
The star, whose hits include Dirrty, Beautiful and Genie in a Bottle, was reportedly paid £200,000 (€300,000) to open the store and was also flown in on a private jet from her home in California.
Tonight she is staying in Al Fayed’s penthouse near to the store and this morning she had a VIP breakfast with the Harrods executive.
