You won’t believe it, but Mulberry’s new face for SS15 is none other than Cressida Bonas! Yep, the former girlfriend of Prince Harry will feature in a brand new video for the iconic British brand, set to be screened in March. Apparently, the vid features Cressida pulling some serious shapes in the first of a serious of cultural offerings as part of the SS15 campaign.
You may not know this, but Cressy (as she’s known to her friends) attended the Royal Ballet School for a few years before heading to Leeds University, where she studied dance. She then moved to Trinity Laban in London, the prestigious conservatoire of music and dance. That’s right, girl’s got moves. In fact, it was a video of her final performance at Leeds that inspired Mulbs to recruit Cressida, who clearly wasn’t fazed by the idea of performing for fashion’s power players.
There has already been a private screening over in LA, where Cressida mingled with the likes of make-up maestro Charlotte Tilbury, as well as our favourite Downton Abbey girls, Laura Carmichael and Joanne Froggatt. Looks like this year’s going to be pretty big for Miss. Bonas, then. We’d say watch this space…
