With a string quartet, legions of kilt-wearing bagpipers, and one Hollywood star, the annual summer sale at London super store Harrod’s opened in regal style. Sarah Michelle Gellar arrived by a horse-drawn carriage to the legendary store, showing off her Jasmine Di Milo satin romper. Once inside, the slasher-film star welcomed the bustling crowd of shop-a-holics into the store. “This is a dream come true. I don’t know about you, but I love shopping,” Gellar said to the crowd with Harrod’s Chairman, Mohammed Al Fayed by her side. Sarah Michelle led the charge of shoppers through the bargain-laden aisles before heading up to the Georgian Restaurant on the 4th floor. Gellar’s presence puts her among the star-studded list of glamorous store-openers including Eva Longoria, Christina Aguilera, and Victoria Beckham. But some people weren’t there for the sales; they just wanted to get a glimpse of their favorite vampire killer. “I’m a huge Buffy fan, I can care less about the store,” said Sienna Ali, 20, who ditched work at a real estate firm to get a glimpse of Gellar.
