Cressida Bonas Just May Be the Anti Kate Middleton

Apr 4 2014 - 8:47am

Prince Harry's never been a traditional royal, so it should come as no surprise that his girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, strays far from convention. Unlike Kate Middleton — who's seemingly been in training, wearing suits and fascinators, since back in her St Andrews University days — Cressida opts for boho overalls and floral wreaths.

With rumors of a proposal heating up [1], we've got Cressida's style on our minds more than ever. Her free-spirited take ranges from festival gear to wedding [2] wear, which means we have much to look forward to if she joins the royal ranks. And now that Cressida's romance with Harry heating up [3], Queen Elizabeth may be in the presence of many a flouncy romper!

For her latest red carpet turn, Cressida had us looking down at her sparkly sequined sneakers.

Now that we've established that Cressida looks lovely in headwear, we can't wait to see her in an actual crown (rather than a floral one!).

Rather than the fascinators preferred by Kate Middleton and the royal family, Cressida kept it sweet with blossoms in her hair. Also notable: her boho pairing of sequins and tie-dye.

Before Olivia Palermo did it [6], Cressida perfected the street style trick of layering shorts over tights.

It doesn't get more effortlessly cool than a printed one-piece, and Cressida set a precedent for laid-back red carpet style while wearing one in London.
