An Instagram comment is worth a thousand words.
Cara Delevingne jumped into the comments on her girlfriend Ashley Benson’s latest ‘grams, showing the world how to be a supportive partner on social media.
Benson posted a triptych of sultry near-nude pics to her Instagram this week, all shot by Nicholas Maggio. In one, her back is to the camera, with her derrière partially obscured by a drape. “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star Rachel Brosnahan was the first to land a comment, going with the classic “😵,” to which Delevingne, 27, responded, “tell me about it.”
For a couple as low-key as Benson and Delevingne, this counts as a grand gesture, and Benson, 29, responded appropriately with a heart emoji and a simple “I love you.”
The pair’s romance dates back to the spring of 2018 when they met on the set of Alex Ross Perry’s “Her Smell.” By August, Benson was seen sporting a necklace with “C” and “A” on it, and by September, Benson was referring to Cara as “mine” on — what else — Instagram.
They’ve been joined at the hip since then, hitting Paris Fashion Week, posting some Pride-related PDA, and getting matching tattoos. Delevingne gave an interview to Marie Claire in September in which she said that in the beginning, they “weren’t looking” for a relationship. “It was really just very authentic and natural.”
