Cressida Bonas put her dance degree to good use in a new fashion video for Mulberry – and we’re thoroughly impressed! The British beauty took centre stage in the fun film, dancing her way to one of the brand’s iconic bags, as part of Mulberry’s latest project, ‘From England With Love.’
Wearing Mulberry’s new Buttercup Dress from the Spring Summer 2015 capsule, the 26-year-old, who used to date Prince Harry, is seen showing off her moves as she dances through a stunning country house.
The short video also sees a cameo from actor Freddie Fox.
Talking about her experience, Cressida said: "It was great to be approached for the project and develop ideas with Mulberry.
“I loved the story and the attitude they wanted to convey. Our team wanted the girl in the film to have energy and fun, with the curiosity to explore which draws her up the stairs and into the mirrored room.
“And once she’s there and feels that no-one’s watching – then she just wants to dance for the joy of it. The setting makes her feel free, and using dance to convey this feeling works so well for the story, and it adds signature Mulberry charm and wit.”
Cressida worked with choreographer Martin Joyce and director Ivana Bobic, who said that Cresida “is a free-spirited Mulberry Girl, but with an inner strength that really comes through”.
The blonde beauty recently revealed that performing brings out a difference side to her personality.
“I don’t really understand it; in real life I’m often so shy – paralysingly so,” she confided to Miss Vogue magazine.
“But when I’m performing, it’s totally different. I feel free.”
Performance has long been a passion of Cressida’s; she graduated from Leeds University with a degree in Dance, before deciding to continue her training at The Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich.
