Westfield Stratford City opened its doors to an extremely eager public this morning (we've still got the bruises to prove it), and the Shoewawa crew dropped in on the press reception to see Mayor Boris Johnson and a team of big retail players officially open the mall. It's now the biggest in the UK and in the whole of Europe, so shopaholics should think carefully before crossing the threshold.

Presiding over the ceremony were Pixie Geldof and Nick Grimshaw, the former wearing a cute polka-dot dress and a particularly eye-catching pair of YSL heels. We're not sure she could pick the shoes up at Westfield itself, but shoppers will be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking up footwear at the mega mall where all our favourite high street brands are represented.

Aldo, Barratts, Clarks, Dune, Jones, Linzi Shoes, Schuh, Skechers, Vans and many more brands besides have a presence here, each with its own large and shiny new store. Drop in if you dare!
