The 26-year-old supermodel was seen cosying up with the 28-year-old Pretty Little Liars star at Heathrow Airport after supposedly landing in the UK together. The pair appeared infatuated with one another as they waited for a taxi outside the terminal, with one snap appearing to show Delevingne with her arm around Benson. Others snaps showed the pair kissing and laughing together. Benson could be seen sporting a gold ‘C’ pendant around her neck, which could be a subtle nod to the model. Her casual look was complete with a white t-shirt, blue denim jacket and black sunglasses. Meanwhile Delevingne wore her hair in long braids with tracksuit bottoms and a camel-coloured suede jacket.
Paper Towns actress Delevingne has previously stood up for LGBTQI+ rights after boycotting Coachella after the owner was accused of homophobia. However, she was then faced with backlash after praising Beyonce’s performance. Posting a picture of the Destiny’s Child, Delevingne’s Instagram post read: “I am speechless. That performance made me burst into tears and sent shivers down my spine. “Especially the Destiny’s child reunion. ICONIC is an understatement. Thank you for inspiring so many and for lifting each other up. #GirlPower @michellewilliams @beyonce @kellyrowland.” However, critics were quick to accuse the 26-year-old of “double standards”.
One wrote: “ooh I understand it now lol #nochella but why would you support an artist who supports Coachella? Surely Beyonce is adding to the problem and not the solution along with other artists. How can people support anyone who is anti LGBT and pro-gun. “Is that not defeating the purpose of not supporting Coachella and actually adding your 2p to it, especially when these celebs have had their fair share of discrimination, they support hate so why would you support anything negative at all that impacts millions of folk.”
