It was at some point last summer that Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson were minding their own business and dating, uncovered in the usual way: the couple were spotted kissing and someone took their photo and shared it with the Internet. But they managed to keep to themselves, for the most part, until last month when Delevingne opened up about her GF.
During a speech at the TrevorLIVE Gala in June, Cara thanked Ashley for showing her “what real love is and how to accept it,” and told E! News about the reason behind their decision to finally go public with their relationship had a lot to do with Pride Month. “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?” Exactly. Why not?
Now it seems the couple may have taken their relationship even further. The two are vacationing in the South of France and were photographed in St Tropez, no longer hiding their feelings—or their ring fingers, the latter of which has sparked engagement rumours, thanks to the actual rings on them. Metro shared pics of both Cara and Ashley sporting matching bands; Delevingne’s a chunkier gold, Benson’s a thinner version. Neither woman has confirmed the news on their social media platforms, and they might never. But the Internet wants to believe what they want to believe, so much so that many have already sent them messages of joy and congratulations. But what if Cara and Ashley are actually more serious than anyone thought and their gold bands are actually wedding rings, not engagement rings, and they’ve already secretly tied the knot—which would be in keeping with their fairly private relationship? The masses might implode.

Cara and Ashley were first pictured holding hands in May 2018, and up until Cara’s confirmation of their relationship last month, it was this past May when things really got serious, thanks to that sex bench.
Delevingne was previously linked to musician Jake Bugg, Michelle Rodriguez and St. Vincent, while Benson counts musician Justin Thorne, Chord Overstreet and celebrity stylist Ryan Good among her exes.
