Model Pixie Geldof is clearly taking the severe UK weather warnings very seriously.

On Monday in Britain the temperature struggled to reach above freezing.

Pixie stepped out in a huge oversized turquoise furry great coat, which had the unfortunate effect of making her look like Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street.

Whilst celebs are jumping on the (faux) fur trend Pixie has found a less controversial way to keep warm.

It seems she loves fluffy coats. In the past she has kept warm in a grey Mulberry coat, and a striped House of Holland coat.

Although the coat dwarfs her tiny frame, she cleary has the right idea.
