Cara Delevingne has finally met her match in steamy relationship with wife Ashley Benson

WHEN Cara Delevingne stripped naked for a daring photoshoot this week, it wasn’t just her incredible figure that caught the eye – but also a rather significant tattoo.

The supermodel has an A inked on her ribcage as a tribute to Ashley Benson — the actress who recently became her wife.

Ashley, meanwhile, has CD inked on her chest — and “Squish”, a pet name for Cara, on her hip.

After a string of high-profile relationships, Cara, 27, seems to have finally met her perfect match — and the relationship is permanent enough to make it official in law, and in body art.

At a recent awards ceremony in New York Cara beamed as she praised Pretty Little Liars star Ashley, saying: “She’s one of the people who helped me love myself when I need it most and I really needed it.

“She showed me what real love is and showed me how to accept it, which was a lot harder than I thought. I love you, Sprinkles.”

The pair reportedly wed recently at the Little Chapel in Las Vegas, complete with an Elvis impersonator and guests including Charlize Theron, the Jonas brothers and Game Of Thrones actress Sophie Turner.

Both the brides wore black.

Chapel owner Michael Kelly said: “They were sure about what they are doing and they were sure about what they mean to each other.

“They were clearly devoted to each other and they had the biggest smiles on their faces.”

On paper, it wasn’t an obvious match. While Cara is a fixture of the international showbiz, known for her wild ways and rumoured flings with famous women, 29-year-old Ashley had previously dated only men.

But Cara, who says of their relationship that they “weren’t looking for it”, insists their courtship was “really just very authentic and natural”.

So what is it that drew them together?

The pair gave rather a big hint in May when they were snapped carrying a box containing a £360 Master Series Faux Leather Sex Bench with Adjustable Restraints into their £2million LA pad.

Cara, who identifies as queer, has also said she loves to give pleasure in bed and is a generous lover.

She told US TV personality RuPaul on his podcast, What’s The Tee?: “That whole courting process of power is very interesting, and it’s a difference with men and women.

“I’m always very submissive with men. Always. But with women, I’m the opposite. So it’s weird.

“Part of sex — that ­connection — is feral. You meet someone but when you go in the bedroom, it’s another animal.”

Right from the start, Cara’s relationship with Ashley has been physical.

They met on the set of punk rock movie Her Smell in May 2018, which saw them film a steamy kiss.

Cara put the clip on Instagram on their first anniversary in June, confirming they were officially together.

Ashley is said to be living with Cara at her Los Angeles mansion, which is kitted out with kinky touches.

In one room, the party queen has a gold stripper’s pole, a mirrored ceiling, a Playboy pinball machine and dozens of paintings of naked women adorning the walls.

Ashley, meanwhile, is unafraid of a life less conventional. Asked about her perfect partner, she said: “Making me laugh is number one, and being adventurous, because I love to just do things last-minute.”

Friends say they are made for each other, and Cara is over the moon to have finally found someone who can keep up with her.

After ten years on the showbiz scene she has nevertheless struggled to find lasting love in the spotlight.

Before Ashley, her longest relationship was with Annie Clark, better known as US musician St Vincent.

They dated for nearly two years before they split in 2016, with 36-year-old Annie later blaming the “craziness of celebrity life”.

Previously, in 2014, Cara dated Fast & Furious actress Michelle Rodriguez for nearly six months but the 41-year-old actress — 14 years older than Cara — reportedly dumped her because she couldn’t keep up with her constant partying.

A source said: “Michelle got tired of Cara constantly being pictured with other female celebs.

“Michelle isn’t as interested in being in the limelight. She thinks they have different priorities.”

Cara has also been linked to Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris and singers Jake Bugg and Harry Styles, and has also enjoyed close friendships with Amber Heard and Rita Ora — who called her “wifey”.

Just like Cara, Ashley has been linked with a number of famous faces, including Twilight actor Taylor Lautner, her Liars co-star Tyler Blackburn and Glee actor Chord Overstreet.

Her longest-known relationship was with Justin Bieber’s road manager Ryan Good — they were on and off from 2011 to 2016.

But Ashley and Cara seem to have found something in one another that their ex lovers didn’t come close to.

In fact, although they grew up on opposite sides of the Atlantic, they have rather a lot in common.

Both enjoyed privileged upbringings — Cara in affluent Belgravia, London, and Ashley in Orange County, California.

Most significantly, however, both have faced their share of demons.

Cara has spoken candidly about how in her teens she suffered a mental breakdown as she struggled to cope with her mother Pandora’s heroin addiction.

She said: “At 15 this terrible wave of depression hit me. I would slam my head against a tree to try to knock myself out.

“I never cut, but I’d scratch myself to the point of bleeding.”

Ashley can sympathise. For two years she was plagued by panic attacks brought on by extreme anxiety.

She recalled: “I could barely go to work. It would get so bad that I would have to leave the set, or I’d be driving and I would have a panic attack.”

Ashley hates the limelight, adding: “If I could work and not have anyone know who I am — I know it’s not possible — that would be my goal.

“Big crowds make me really anxious, so I usually find myself a corner and sit there.”

Her attitude contrasts to the more naturally vivacious Cara, who is passionate about using her position to speak openly about sex, mental health and LGBTQ issues.

While neither of them has officially confirmed their marriage, it seems that together the pair have struck the perfect balance.

Last week Ashley was seen wearing a gold band on her wedding finger and Cara uploaded a shot of a chocolate cake with a soppy message on it from Ashley.

It read: “I love you Cara. Luckiest girl in the world.”
