Grin and bare it: Kylie Minogue braves the cold weather and a make-up free face as she steps out in black and gold coat

Natural: Kylie kept things make-up free in London today

She may be a megastar but Kylie Minogue kept things understated when she stepped out in London today.

The pint-sized pop star, 43, drove herself to a West London gym.

While it is unusual to see her in such a casual outfit, Kylie looked simple and stylish.

She decided to go au naturel and free of make-up as she strolled down the street after parking her car.

But her bare face didn't stop the star from smiling at the awaiting photographers.

She picked a black coat with gold piping to keep her warm in the cool British weather.

The Australian kept the rest of the outfit equally simple in skinny black trousers, which she accessorised with black heeled pumps and a black patent handbag.

And Kylie is not the only one to favour the double-breasted coat, which falls mid-thigh and ties at the waist.

Pippa Middleton, who is fast becoming a style icon just like her sister, has also been spotted sporting it.

Kylie finished her worldwide tour Aphrodite last month and is currently promoting a 3-D version of the concert.

She is also voices an animatronic pig in the musical Betty Blue Eyes at London's Novello Theatre.

The singer was earlier this month seen visiting the pig, which she has voiced since the musical's opening in April.
