The New SM Aura Premier+Sarah Jessica Parker!
I was privileged to attend the May 16 VIP opening of the newest mall on this side of Taguig, SM Aura Premier. It is dubbed as SM's upscale shopping destination to date. In this post, I shall take you on a mini tour around SMAP! :)
It is also the 3rd largest mall of the SM group of companies.
The highlight of the event was of course, meeting no other than Sarah Jessica Parker, Hollywood actress slash style maven who became ultra famous for her Carrie Bradshaw character in the hit series Sex and The City. SJP is currently the face of SM Department Store.
EHRMEHGERD. It's Sarah Jessica Parker!!! Here she is, having fun as she showers coins around the newly- launched SM Store.
I was expecting that she'd arrive in an ala- Carrie Bradshaw get-up in the Sex in The City movies-take note-but she just came in a sleek long black dress with a cut-out at the back part. Very simple, yet very chic--she's just proven again that more than the fashionable clothing and whatnots, the aura, projection, and confidence of a person still counts! :D
I was THIS close to madame SJP. Managed to marvel at her face for a while, and the most recognizable thing about her facial feature would be her striking light blue eyes!
Meeting a Hollywood star plus seeing Henry Sy pass by right in front of me was altogether a marvelous experience. May 16, 2013 is definitely one of the days that I'll remember. :)
Now click READ MORE and let's go around SM Aura Premier!
I only managed to mosey around the beauty section of the SM store because the whole area was jam packed. Here are some of the classic beauty brands to see in here:
And some of the newest beauty brands in the country have put up their own mini counters too!
NYX! Whoa! Gone are the days where we would wait for our NYX pre-orders to arrive. :)
Make Up Factory
So let's now leave The SM Store, shall we? Let's go around the mall and check out the various fashion, beauty, and lifestyle brands in here:
Forever 21. I believe this is the largest Forever 21 branch to date: 2 floors, and overall size is 6 stores combined!
YAY! My favorite Estee Lauder brands are finally in Taguig! Now I don't see the need to leave The Fort anymore! :D
AAAAHHHHHH!!!!! I was literally screaming in delight from within when I learned that Pylones is finally in town! Now I can grab their super cute umbrellas sans the ridiculous shipping and customs fees!
OTHER BRANDS: Yosi Samra, Laneige, L'Arte Shoes, Regatta, Watson's, Stradivarius, Promod, Suiteblanco, Rolex, Piquadro
And the tour ends here. This is just a mini preview of the many things to see and experience inside SM Aura. I'll just leave it to you to discover. Besides, I was in heels that time so you'll understand why I wasn't able to go around that much! :D
At least there's a new mall in The Fort for variety's sake, although I wish they'd do something about the people traffic in the area, which in turn causes major vehicular traffic at one of the main access roads to northbound and southbound C5. I think barricading the street- level pedestrian lane and building a footbridge instead would be a good solution.
