Celebrities are not impervious to the cold, even if they manage to somehow look more glamorous dressing for it than we mere mortals.

Whether you're having a wild time at your favourite Sainsbury's Local or going on a walk around the country manor grounds with David Beckham (you too?

Only today were we reminded of the fact when 2020's official "queen of casual" Katie Holmes, stepped out onto the chilly sidewalks of NYC wearing a snuggly, puffy black cropped jacket. It's a style of basic padded outerwear that I've seen all over the streets of east London too—plain enough that you could snap one up from & Other Stories or Arket and it would equally expensive as an ultra-version from a designer brand.
Joining her in recent days comes a roll-call of equally influential names in every kind of puffer coat style possible: Emily Ratajkowski opted for something more statement-making, Rosie HW went some the ultra-ultra high-fashion option (what else?) and even Victoria Beckham, who is usually to be seen in very smart, fitted, classic attire, has given into the comfort of a little black puffer.
