I may not be as up to speed on the queer celebrity Instagram as I used to be, but even I felt the earth’s molten core shudder with excitement when your cool gay pal with the eyebrows Cara Delevingne posted a video of herself and rumored paramour Ashley Benson engaged in a passionate open-mouthed kiss.
Is this a clip from Her Smell? I wouldn’t know because I didn’t see it (but I did just learn that Cara’s character is named Crassie Cassie and Ashley’s is named Roxie Rotten! What a world!). What I do know is that Cara Delevingne is extremely queer, and so is everything she touches, so even though we already saw these two adorably collaborating on dragging a large, unwieldy piece of sexual furniture into their (shared) home, this video apparently counts as official confirmation that the two are an item.
As an added bonus, Cara spoke about the post with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala. When asked why she felt the need to post something so “official,” she responded, “I don’t know…. because it is Pride, it’s been 50 years since Stonewall happened and I don’t know – It’s been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?” She also acknowledged that she didn’t particularly like the idea of making her relationship publicly “official,” but here we are.
Delevingne was at the gala to receive a Hero Award, acknowledging her work with the Trevor Project. During her acceptance speech, she shouted out her girlfriend – “I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are. She’s one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought… I love you, Sprinkles.”
When Cara Delevingne calls you “Sprinkles” in public, you know it’s real.
