Now we're not normally ones for fascinating facts, but we have to admit we were mightily impressed with Westfield London's vital stats:
-Place the 96 escalators end to end and they could take you to the top of Ben Nevis and back down again. All the better for transporting you round the 265 shops that have opened there today.
-Look above your head in The Village (that's the fabulous designer part) and you'll see that 7,000 crystals will make up the four cascading chandeliers. Oh, and you'll also find stores such as Louis Vuitton, Mulberry, Dior and Twenty8Twelve in there too.
-There are all sorts of whizzy architectural bits to look at - from the fabulous roof to staircases that appear to float, a sculpture of laser-cut acrylic stilettos suspended in space, and a floor made from recycled trainers.
-New label alert! There are 15 brands new to the UK you won't have seen before - including Abercrombie & Fitch's sister chain Hollister, Aussie accessory line Mimco and luxury brand Desa.
-Topshop will be hosting live bands and DJ sets throughout the weekend (Ebony Bones, Little Boots, Lou Hayter). Spend over £50 and you'll receive a special limited-edition key ring designed by Christopher Kane.
-It's heaving with ribbon-cutting and Champagne cork-popping today - with Leona Lewis, Dannii Minogue, Paul Sculfor (Cameron Diaz's boyf), Yasmin Le Bon, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Twiggy and er, Boris ‘Bojo' Johnson all turning up to join the party.
