kimcattrall_opensharrods.jpgAs we casually mentioned last week, Kim Cattrall was invited to officially open the Harrods spring/summer sale yesterday.

The Sex and the City star brought a touch of Hollywood glitz to the event, arriving in a horse-drawn carriage with Harrods owner Mohamed Al Fayed. She was dressed in a soft apricot leather jacket by Dries Van Noten, cream Givenchy babydoll dress, and stunning Zanotti snakeskin shoes.

The 51-year-old actress, originally from Liverpool, greeted fans who had been queuing up since 6.30am.

"As a Brit I understand what this sale means, it's very near and dear to my heart," she said. "The first time I came to Harrods was the time I decided to get a credit card because I couldn't carry enough cash with me!"

Following the traditional countdown, Cattrall was taken on an exclusive shopping trip around Harrods, all while smooching up to two gorgeous Dachsund pups, Harley and Ruby.

"And as I always say, all's fair in shopping and love," she added.
