Cressida Bonas proves she's not just a pretty face in a new video promoting the Mulberry Spring/Summer 2015 campaign in which she dances her heart out.
The video is entitled Cressida Bonas and the Buttercup Dress, and sees Cressie stepping onto grass-covered stairs in a courthouse in Clerkenwell, which, according to the Daily Telegraph, "explores the mood of carefree lightheartedness evoked by an English garden on a summer's day".
According to the Mirror, Cressida herself told Yahoo Style: "I think it was just about being free and happy, and having fun.
"The idea was, 'Dance as if you're dancing in your kitchen.' It was more about a dance that was improvised, and not all about the steps. It was really just about having fun!"
Cressida appears in the short film alongside actor Freddie Fox. Talent spotters at her final dance performance before her graduation from the University of Leeds were reportedly "charmed by her movement which inspired the concept".
She studied Dance at the university before moving onto the prestigious Trinity Laban Dance Conservatoire in London.
The Mulberry film was choreographed by Martin Joyce and directed by Ivana Bobic, and is the first of three.
According to Hello! magazine, 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."
She added that the 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, who dated Prince Harry for two years until April 2014, is also stars alongside Dame Judi Dench and Christoph Waltz in the upcoming film Tulip Fever.
She's definitely one to watch...
