Winter Coats 2013: Hollywood Starlets Rocked Holiday Fashion (PHOTOS)


Winter is coming! (Yes, that was a "Game of Thrones" reference but it also literally applies to the colder season that is upon us.)

With teeth-clattering weather hovering ever so close, we realize that it's time to dig out our winter coats and layer up to stave off frostbite.

And who better to look for winter fashion inspiration than stylish ladies of yesteryear such as the late (and great) Elizabeth Taylor - who always knew how to show off her mean figure - and fashion goddess Sophia Loren, who looked glamorous even when bundled up in a big fur coat.

Just because it's cold outside, it doesn't mean you can't make a sartorial statement and the following women are proof that winter coats can look just as stylish as your fall finest thanks to some tailoring, creativity and a bit of drama, natch.
