One of the charities she is involved with is Horatio's Garden, a UK organisation, which has just announced a new Summer Art Auction to raise vital funds for the NHS.

The coat has a wide lapel and a distinctively retro vibe. A sellout item, it is sadly no longer available but we've shopped some similar numbers for you to get inspired by.

The Summer Art Auction has a line up of 50 artists who have donated original artwork for the cause, including paintings, sculpture, ceramics and photography, with prices ranging from £300 up to £30,000.
