Her X Factor performance may have been slated by the press (and the off-topic reply when talking to Dermot after set the alarm bells ringing) but there's no denying Britney Spears is looking better now than she has in a long time.

It's the first time in a long time that CQ's felt the need to emulate Brit. Get your own duffel coat from Gant for £299 (stockists: 020 7201 2900).
