Like most 24-year-olds, she’s been known to rock denim overalls, leather shorts, daytime sequins and even 90s grunge shirts. But Cressida Bonas just so happens to be the girl most likely to tame royal wild-child Prince Harry.
The girlfriend of the wayward Prince has been on the scene for more than a year, although notably absent from the 29-year-old’s infamous, nude, Vegas romp.
But things really heated up this February when the couple made a public display of affection on the slopes of Verbier, Switzerland, sending the media – starved from nine months of Kate’s boring maternity wear – into a fashion watch frenzy. Since then, they’ve been spotted at a James Blunt concert and the stage show “The Book of Mormon”.
Although she’s up on charges for singlehandedly attempting to reinstate the “scrunchie” as a fashionable item, Bonas has received kudos for her irreverent Glastonbury get-up: denim overalls, white singlet, white leather high-tops and a pair of fluoro green sunnies; and her on trend flowing, floral dresses teamed with cute, sequin blazers; her body-con evening wear; and her youthful minis and crop tops.
Harry has allegedly met Cressida’s family and she spent the weekend at the Queen’s estate in Sandringham with Camilla and Charles. She’s even reportedly given up dreams of a career as a dancer on the West End for fear of embarrassing the Palace.
Alexander McQueen’s office is waiting for the call.
What do you think of Cressida's style? Will she be a challenge to Kate's status as the number one royal fashion icon?
