Is This How You Self-Quarantine?
Plus many other questions we have about this photo of Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson, Kaia Gerber, and friends strolling around LA.
Despite the fact that many of us are now tucked away in our homes, protecting ourselves and others from contracting COVID-19, celebrities have still managed to hit us with that daily dose of FOMO. Case in point? Cara Delevingne, Ashley Benson, Kaia Gerber, Margaret Qualley, and Tommy Dorfman, all of whom seem to be riding out this coronavirus self-quarantine together — and having a whole lot of fun doing it.
We’ve already spent our days scrolling through their TikTok videos, watching this group (which, notably, is under 10 people, in accordance with the White House's latest guidelines!) act out scenes from Keeping Up With the Kardashians. However, it was their recent stroll down a Los Angeles street that sent us over the edge, making us spiral and over-analyze things, purely due to our own cabin fever.
First of all, how did everyone end up together? We realize many of them were already pretty tight (Gerber and Dorfman are known to be BFFs, and Benson and Delevingne are dating), and they also hung out together throughout Fashion Month. But, are they neighbors, too? Did they organize this via group text, and are now stuck having the world’s longest, most famous sleepover ever, full of top models and Hollywood starlets? Is Dorfman's husband chilling out somewhere else? We need details!
From a fashion perspective, we're also pretty curious about these outfits. What a range! While Gerber is wearing leggings and a $39 Matt Bernstein statement hoodie, Qualley has on jeans — aka the opposite of leggings — and Benson pulled together a full spring look, complete with denim cutoffs (which we'll surely refer back to once everyone is healthy again). Did they coordinate their Converse sneakers and tell everyone to let their socks show? Did Delevingne and Dorfman intentionally match those one-strap overalls? And, why did Delevingne suddenly switch the one she wanted to hook? It changes sides in these photos, and we definitely missed what inspired that choice.
Lastly, we can’t ignore that good ol' Pete Davidson connection. He dated both Qualley and Gerber, and now, the two women are locked up together for an undetermined amount of time — and they're hugging (we'll assume they've washed their hands).
With only so much Netflix to watch, and major premieres being pushed back, TikTok-creeping and theorizing has now become our preferred form of entertainment. Please, keep us updated, together-self-isolating crew. You're a welcomed distraction during this time of uncertainty.
