It is an ideal match for sex-obsessed Cosmo.
Author Katie Heaney touts Delevingne as a lesbian function mannequin of kinds:
The final time Cara was within the information for a intercourse toy—sure, there was a final time—it was an all-caps Each day Mail headline saying her buy of a “SEX BENCH” with then-girlfriend Ashley Benson. The images of them carrying the SEX BENCH into their West Hollywood dwelling lit up queer ladies’s group texts in every single place, together with my very own. There was one thing so joyful in watching two well-known, lovely ladies giggle as they schlepped intercourse gear into their home.
What’s most fascinating on this smutty piece is how she needs to be celebrated as “pansexual and gender-fluid,” however she doesn’t actually need to be outlined as something, it’s simply so confining:
It’s that difficult situationship Well-known Individuals Who Are Position Fashions have with stated fame: Cara needs to be the aspirational illustration she wanted rising up, however that collides with desirous to be freed from the smothering downsides of being a public determine. Take, as an illustration, when Cara got here out as pansexual and gender-fluid slightly over a yr in the past.
