She may be Bridgerton’s leading lady, but Simone Ashley’s latest look is more pinball wizard than Regency courtier.
The 27-year-old actress swapped delicate dresses and delicate slippers for a pair of chunky Prada boots reminiscent of Elton John’s costume in the 1975 psychedelic rock opera Tommy.
And while Miss Ashley’s aristocratic alter ego Kate Sharma is unlikely to wear the kings brushed leather and nylon boots, she can approve of the hefty £1,650 price tag.

With their two and a half inch heels, the Prada Monolith boots are a favorite of female fashionistas. Emma Watson and Rita Ora are among those wearing similar shoes.
Miss Ashley, who teamed her boots with a lime green dress and navy Versace coat, first gained recognition for her appearance in Netflix’s steamy comedy Sex Education.
Of Indian descent, she recently said she felt she had to work much harder to be successful than her white colleagues.
