Cara Delevingne is on the cover of ELLE’s September issue and inside, she shares why connecting with fans on a personal level is so important to her:

“I couldn’t just sit there and listen to these girls, and boys, too, but usually girls, say this stuff, about bullying, about their sexuality, depression, and guilt and suicidal thoughts and just all of it, without being like, ‘I have been through that, and it’s going to be okay.’ If I can help a teenager go through a better time than they should be, then I am going to fucking do that. I mean, fucking being a teenager suuuccccks. And I somehow came through the other end.”

Elena Delle Donne talked about acknowledging her relationship publicly for the first time with reporters at Rio: 

“It’s not a coming out article or anything. I’ve been with her for a very long time now, and people who are close to me know that, and that’s that. As the future keeps moving on, I don’t plan on having our relationship out in the public and all this media on it, but obviously there’s excitement right now because people see it for the first time. I decided I’m not at all going to hide anything.”


Such an awesome experience! #superbowl50
