Up until now, Cressida Bonas has been best known as the on-again, off-again – currently off-again – girlfriend of Prince Harry.

The 26-year-old's new foray into the fashion world was unveiled in LA over the weekend ahead of the Golden Globes.

'I think it was just about being free and happy, and having fun,' Cressida told Yahoo Style of the film.
