Jenna Coleman cuts a stylish figure in a gold tweet coat as she wraps up for Chanel’s outdoor Metiers d’Art show
Jenna Coleman didn't let an outdoor runway get in the way of her style on Thursday as she pulled out all the fashion stops for Chanel's Metiers d'Art show.
With a huge catwalk built across Thomas Street and High Street in Manchester, a host of stars stood out in the cold for a few chilly hours to see the fashion giant's latest collection, designed by creative director Virginie Viard.
Jenna, 37, looked effortlessly chic in a gold tweed coat from the designer. It hugged the actress with a belt at the waist and had black lapels.
The actress complemented the look with black strappy heels and earrings.
Luckily for Jenna, she sat next to an outdoor heater before the models took to the catwalk.
