When you have a seriously chic fashion party to attend but temperatures are way down in the minuses, your little black dress just won’t do, so what do you wear? Well, if you’re a stylish fashionista during New York Fashion Week, then the most important piece in your arsenal is a really, really great coat.

The Fendi flagship store opening took place last night and, as you can expect, was filled with more fashionistas than you could ever dream. Anna Wintour, Coco Rocha and Hailey Baldwin joined Rihanna, SJP, Olivia Palermo and Jourdan Dunn to celebrate the fabulous brand’s new home and to show off their ah-mazing coat collections.

So, with temperatures still super chilly, here is a handy guide and the ultimate in coat inspiration from fashion’s finest.

Rihanna’s pale-pink, long fluffy number was the perfect addition to her slinky, sequinned gown and strappy heels. Party underneath but a contrast of totally warm and practical on the top? Tick!

One of our fave fashionistas comes in the form of Olivia Palermo who kept her stylish self warm in a bright green brocade coat – adding the perfect pop of colour to a chilly New York night. Matching her dress to her coat and adding a bright blue fluffy accessory, there was no missing this little lady.


And the ultimate contender for coat queen had to be Jourdan Dunn who donned not one, but two blue mohair coats in just one evening. Taking first to Toni Garrn’s charity flea market event (can you get more fabulous than a supermodel clothes swap?), she then worked a similar coat to the Fendi party. For the double dose of style, we think she has to be crowned our winner, so have picked out a high street alternative for you to shop, just click on the link below. This bright blue number from Damsel In A Dress is just the ticket to getting Jourdan’s effortlessly chic style.

So there you have it, how to look fabulous and keep seriously toasty at the same time just like your fave stylish celebs!
