Meet: Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne, the celebrity relationship that will catapult the movie Her Smell into the cultural conscious. Both star in the movie as rockstar-adjacent blondes next to a deteriorating rockstar played by Elisabeth Moss (also blonde, incidentally). Benson and Delevingne are a tried-and-true summer relationship, having first appeared in late May. Now, as summer turns to fall, they appear to still be together.
