    brisk chill

    Bond Girl Gemma showed her British grit as she braved the brisk chill and drizzly weather in the flesh-baring ensemble, which came complete with fishnet panels.

    (1) Does British grit refer to Brittons don't fear about cold weather? Is it true in the real?

    (2) brisk chill = very chill?

    I think grit is

    4.
    Informal Indomitable spirit; pluck.
    here. It might be ironical, I'm not sure.

    As for the chill, it's a noun here so I don't think it can be modified with 'very'. Brisk means 'envigorating'.

    Oh, I am not a teacher; I forgot to add. But it's visible I guess

    It means being determined not to let something stop you. Is it true? We complain endlessly about the weather.

    That's the idea, though as mmasny says, you can't use very here because it's a noun.
