The two join in an intimate embrace for the black-and-white photo.

The picture is just the latest in a series of shots that shows the girls’ friendship. Delevingne was caught with her arms around her friend at the British Fashion Awards a day before they were in Austria, Us Weekly wrote. A different picture shows the British beauty, 22, resting her chin on Jenner’s shoulder.
They were both reportedly offered to walk at the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which took place in London this year, but instead, the models opted to sashay down the catwalk at the Chanel Metiers d'Art Collection 2014/2015 show in Austria on Tuesday. Delevingne and Jenner held hands at one point during the event.

Jenner dated “One Direction” star Harry Styles in the past and never publicly talked about her sexuality. When asked about sexual identity, Delevingne, who has also been tied to Harry Styles, told the Telegraph that she was just having a good time after she was rumored to be dating Michelle Rodriguez.
“I'm young, I'm having fun, I don't want to pretend to be something I'm not,” she told the Telegraph. “So I don't really care on that matter. People can say what they want, but I'm having a good time. I know what people are doing who are my age; I just think it would be a lie to pretend that I'm not having a good time.” She added that she feels more at ease around women because men are “shallow” and just want sex.
