Katy Perry seems to be well up on our British traditions – she started wearing her poppy with pride yesterday as she was spotted leaving the Real Radio studios in Manchester, England before her Halloween concert at the MEN Arena.

For those who don’t know, the Royal British Legion encourages people to wear a poppy in the period leading up to Remembrance Day (November 11) as a mark of gratitude to British casualties of war. The proceeds from the poppies help support the families of the victims.

Katy wore a very chic Valentino cashmere coat from the Fall 2011 collection.

The double-breasted coat with studded details and double flat pockets was teamed with a shimmering pink scarf, to match her hair, black tights and black suede knee-high boots.

She comically wore a blue kitten face mask as a hair accessory.

You can buy Katy’s Valentino coat from Luisa via Roma.
