Cara Delevinge is taking the October cover of Elle UK where she opens about her relationship.
The actress and model who is dating Ashley Benson spoke about being in love.
“I’m just better when I’m in love,” she said to the publication. “That doesn’t have to mean with someone. It can also mean with myself. It just feels incredible when you’re not alone, when you’re facing the world with someone else. I don’t want to be so secretive that people think I’m ashamed of anything. But I’ve never been in a relationship where things are so public, or where I posted pictures of someone else. This seemed different. We had gotten to the point where we had kept it a secret, or at least not wanted attention, and now I feel like I’m not going to not be proud.”
Delevinge started her career in the modelling world where she became a muse of the late Karl Lagerfeld.
“What made me really sad was, at the finale, I was looking for Karl to go, ‘What a great show!’ That’s when I realised: Oh no, he’s not here,” she said of his death back in Feb. 2019.
Her lengthy modelling career that started in 2009 included a Burberry campaign with Kate Moss– a moment the “Carnival Row” actress describes as the “scariest moment” of her career.
“One of the best and worst moments was shooting my first Burberry campaign with Kate [Moss]. It was terrifying! How do you get your photo taken next to her? It’s like shooting with a panther,” she recalled. “She’s the queen of the set but also she might eat me. I was in awe, but trying to get the shot. Every time I was on set, I’d be staring at her instead of looking at the camera.”
The October issue of Elle UK is on sale from Sept. 6 2019.
