Cressida Bonas has added a stunning retro cover shoot for Jalouse magazine to her impressive fashion portfolio. Channeling British fashion icon Twiggy, Prince Harry’s former flame smoulders in the editorial spread, the showpiece of the French publication's October issue.
Modeling key pieces inspired by the 1960s (think colorful berets, chunky heels and tweed mini skirts), the English beauty proves to be a natural in front of the camera posing for a variety of fun and flirty shots. The feature comes on the heels of Cressida’s appearances at London and Paris fashion weeks, where she mixed and mingled with industry heavyweights like Anna Wintour and Alexa Chung.
The 26-year-old stunner is also enjoying a blossoming acting career. After wrapping production earlier this year on her first feature film, Tulip Fever, Cressida landed a role in Julian Fellowes’ (Downton Abbey) new series, Doctor Thorne. She is also set to head to Cleveland later this year to start work on the movie The Bye Bye Man alongside Toronto native Douglas Smith (Big Love).
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. Even though she looks right at home on stage and on screen, she has admitted to being painfully shy in real life. “I don’t understand it,” she told Miss Vogue magazine, adding, “But when I’m performing, it’s totally different. I’m free.”
