Cressida Bonas has long been a style star. In this pre-Harry look at the 2011 Ralph Lauren Wimbledon Party, the It girl stands out in a watercolor printed jumpsuit.
Bonas was reportedly introduced to Prince Harry in May of 2012, but by the looks of this edgy all-black ensemble later that year, the potential princess wasn’t changing for anyone.
Of course, the then-royal girlfriend could clean up, too. Bonas showed off her polished side (alongside friend Princess Eugenie of York) in 2013 in a floral maxi dress and seafoam green blazer at Rupert Finch and Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs’s wedding.
The actress and model offered a refreshing break from typical festival wear in blue and green sunglasses, roomy overalls, a pale blue scrunchie, and Nike Air Force Ones at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival.
Post-Harry, Bonas debuted a newfound love of blown-out hair—worn here with a black camisole, silk pants, and pointed pumps at a London charity event in June 2014.
Bonas showed her love of scrunchies again with a black version, Hooters t-shirt, cut-offs, and Hunter boots at Glastonbury in 2014. So much for a refreshing take on festival dressing.
As Bonas’s acting career has picked up, her off-duty style has become more pared down. Leaving the theater after a 2014 performance in “There’s a Monster in the Lake,” the beauty looked fresh-faced and clean in simple white overalls and Converse sneakers.
The It Brit invaded Hollywood at the 2015 BAFTA Los Angeles Tea Party in a white Mulberry dress and black leather sandals.
She shined at Dior’s Cruise 2016 show on the Riviera, wearing a sequin turtleneck dress and black pumps by the French house.
Most recently, celebrating her much-lauded performance in “An Evening with Lucian Freud,” Bonas let her talent do the talking in a plain white t-shirt, black pants, and blazer.
