Actress Lucy Liu will open the world-famous new year (05) sale at exclusive London department store Harrods.

The Charlie's Angels beauty will jet into the British capital in time for the opening ceremony at 9am on 3 January (05), where she will wear $3.6 million (GBP2 million) worth of jewellery loaned to her by store owner MOHAMMED AL FAYED.

The 37-year-old enthuses, "I am so thrilled to be invited to open the world-famous Harrods sale. It is such a wonderful tradition and I am truly honoured to be a part of it. Like many others I hope to pick up a few bargains while I am there."

CONOR NOLAN, a spokesperson for Harrods, adds, "We are once again absolutely delighted to have such a great star as Lucy Liu to open the sale. Mr Fayed is really looking forward to welcoming Lucy to London after Christmas."

Celebrities including Christina Aguilera, Goldie Hawn and Victoria Beckham have opened the sale in past years.
