Lily Donaldson opens Harrods Summer Sale

Lily Donaldson officially opened the Harrods Summer Sale over the weekend. The British model wore a one-sleeved black and white Lanvin dress which featured a silver embellished trim. Like it? Well it's on sale at Harrods, of course.

"It's a big honour. I've been coming here since I was a kid for the toys," she said as people queued outside the department store ahead of the official opening at 9am. "It was such a fun experience which I enjoyed every minute of."

Donaldson posed for photographers in front of piles of gift wrapped presents and doorman dressed in the Harrods trademark green colours. Lily finished the day by choosing her favourite sale items and providing some of her top tips for shopping the sale exclusively for Harrods' many Twitter followers. She follows on from Florence Welch who opened the Harrods Winter Sale in December last year.

As for what Lily will be looking for in at the sale, she told the Telegraph: "I will have my eyes peeled today for a cashmere coat." She also discussed her future plans, saying: "I certainly want to continue to model and work with incredible photographers and designers, however I am also looking forward to doing more charity work."
