  • Cressida Bonas stars in a new short film by Mulberry

    Following in the footsteps of Alexa Chung, Cara Delevingne and Lana Del Rey, Cressida Bonas has been named as Mulberry’s latest IT-girl collaborator.

    The 26 year-old has been cast in a mini-movie for the British designer brand, appearing alongside British actor Freddie Fox.

    ‘I think it was just about being free and happy, and having fun,’ Cressida told Yahoo Style of her Mulberry performance. ‘The idea was, ‘dance as if you’re dancing in your kitchen.’ It was more about a dance that was improvised, and not all about the steps. It was really just about having fun!’

    The film, which will be released in March, was shown to an exclusive handful of A-listers including Keira Knightley and Eddie Redmayne at an intimate LA screening over the weekend.

    Cressida, who first found fame when she dated Prince Harry two years ago, is a trained dancer and rising star actress – mega-director Harvey Weinstein recently hailed her as ‘fantastic’.

    ‘Cressida is great in Tulip Fever and people will see what a fantastic actress she is… it will be the first of many roles for her,’ Harvey told the Evening Standard of her first major film role. ‘She is not taking advantage if any media profile.’
