Gemma Arterton, Mohammed Al Fayed
Not only did London's world-famous sale begin on Saturday morning, but InStyle favourite Gemma Arterton was on hand to officially open it.
The Bafta-nominated actress was the star attraction at Harrods, wearing a wow-worthy black and silver show-stopping sequin dress by Balmain and black suede peep-toe lace boots, also by Balmain (the whole outfit is in the sale!)
Queues stretched right around the front of the Knightsbridge store as Arterton began the official countdown with shoppers gearing up to make a dash for their favourite designer pieces.
The sale includes 50% markdowns on such designers as Chloé, Yves Saint Laurent, Erdem and Julien Macdonald, and runs until Sunday 10 July - grab your bargain before it's gone!
