  • From easy festival dressing to red carpet wins - here's just a few reasons we're loving Cressida Bonas' style...

    Cressida Bonas has stormed onto the fashion scene over the past few years, and it’s not too hard to see why.

    The 27-year-old actress and former flame of Prince Harry has impressed in a number of spectacular looks, winning a place on many best dressed lists and firmly cementing her status as a super-sassy and ultra-stylish celeb to watch.

    Cressida first caught our eye for her impressive sartorial skills during the summer festival season back in 2013, sporting some distressed dungarees, worn with a fuss-free tee, retro-style Reebok high tops, a messy top knot and lime green sunnies, and pulled it off with ease. So far, so very cool.

    Lately, it’s an altogether different vibe for the blonde beauty.

    Whether it’s a black lace midi dress worn FROWside at the star-studded Topshop Unique show or a white swing hem dress worn with sock-boot-style heels for a Dior show in Paris – Cressida has it truly nailed.

    Alongside all those fashion appearances Cressida is a regular on the party scene, popping up at some of the most exclusive events in something seriously chic. We’re talking about those sleek black jumpsuits, that yellow pinafore mini styled so artfully over a basic tee with platform heels, and not forgetting Cressida’s penchant for all thing maxi.

    Yes, it’s fair to say this Brit beauty has an eye for style, and is one of our favourite new celebs to watch.
