This year’s Oscars were widely panned as a snoozy wokefest, but it seems the most entertaining award-worthy drama was happening during a private soiree.
Particularly when openly pansexual model Cara Delevingne, 28, was seen leaving an Oscars afterparty and piling into a car with singer Paris Jackson, once again sparking rumors of a romance between the duo. Page Six exclusively reported that the pair were smiling while Jackson attempted to cover her face.
The pair have been linked on and off since 2017, when they were spotted leaving a nightclub hand in hand. Delevingne began squiring the younger model around town, attending a Burberry party together and spied smooching at a dinner with Jackson’s godfather Macaulay Culkin and his girlfriend Brenda Song.
If they are indeed dating, Jackson — who does not label her sexuality — would be just the latest of a string of stunning ladies on Delevingne’s arm.
The “Paper Towns” actress has carved out a niche in Hollywood normally reserved for male Lotharios like Leo DiCaprio and, before him, Warren Beatty. For nearly a decade, Delevingne has been unapologetically enjoying public relationships and sometimes just titillating flirtations with a bevy of high profile, beautiful women.
“I think she just has this allure, because she’s both feminine and masculine,” a modeling world source told The Post of Delevingne. “She’s powerful, connected and successful. If you are a lesbian or sexually fluid, you definitely have a crush on her. She is so f – – king cool and just magnetic.”
Born in London to an aristocratic family (her grandmother was a lady-in-waiting to Princess Margaret), Delevingne has always been plugged into high society. Her father Charles is a property developer and mother Pandora is pals with Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. Her godmother is “Dynasty” actress Joan Collins.
In 2009, she was signed to Storm Management by founder Sarah Doukas, who also discovered a then-14-year-old Kate Moss at JFK while she was on vacation. But unlike the working-class Moss, Delevingne wasn’t a random stranger to Doukas.
“I’ve been best friends with Genevieve Garner, daughter of Sarah Doukas, since I was 5,” Delevingne explained to the UK’s Telegraph.
She left school to pursue a career and, by 2012, had become the most sought-after face in modeling, shaking up the industry with her trademark caterpillar eyebrows, androgynous energy and rebellious streak.
Former fashion executive and host of “Leave Your Mark” podcast Aliza Licht recalled working with Delevingne in 2014, when the catwalker had a collection with DKNY. During the launch event, they asked her to stand atop the Bloomingdale’s marquee.
“Everyone was pretty nervous about having her stand up in the air like that, so we had an ‘X’ marked to show her where she could safely stand,” Licht told The Post.
“She completely ignored it. She went right to the edge and had the best time engaging with the hundreds of fans who showed up for the launch. She is a renegade, for sure.”
When she first burst onto the style scene, she was linked to Harry Styles.
But just as she shook up the fashion world, she helped change the conversation around sexual orientation — sometimes against counsel.
In an interview with Porter magazine, Delevingne revealed that disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein advised her to stay in the closet, telling her, ” ‘You will never make it in this industry as a gay woman — get a beard.’ ”
She not only rejected that advice, she did so brazenly.
In early 2014, Delevingne was photographed at a Knicks game canoodling with “The Fast and the Furious” actress Michelle Rodriguez.
But by July, the pair had split and in March 2015, Delevingne moved on with singer Annie Clark, a k a St. Vincent. About a month into the relationship, she tweeted, “I am very much in love,” capped with a heart emoji.
That same month, she was on the cover of Vogue and opened up about her relationship and fluid sexuality.
“I think that being in love with my girlfriend is a big part of why I’m feeling so happy with who I am these days….
