Cressida Bonas, the young British actress, dancer and model has certainly been blessed with the right provenance.
The youngest daughter of Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon and entrepreneur Jeffery Bonas, and a granddaughter of Edward Curzon, the sixth Earl Howe, she’s rarely out of the news. An ex-girlfriend of the rumbustious Prince Harry, she can claim to have all the ‘It’ girl resources which she uses to great advantage.
Her wardrobe, which consisted of all tattered jeans, has now turned its owner into a glamorous puss who ditched the common trouser to show a sultry look in the French magazine, L’Officiel: Wearing as little as possible to establish herself as the new Must model who, at the of 26 after splitting up with the Prince last year, is now fancy free with the world at her feet.
Her career has gone from strength to strength, with the success of her lead role in An Evening with Lucien Freud on stage in London, and a contract to front Burberry’s 2015 campaign. We shall see more of her when Harvey Weinstein’s film Tulip Fever is released in the New Year.
Her future, it seems, is reassured. She has the looks, the connections and hopefully the talent to entertain and allure us for many years to come. Prince Harry, I am sure, will bite his nails for her loss.
