"It's pretty new," a source told the gossip magazine. In recent years, Ashley has devoted her career to building up the clothing lines she started with twin sister Mary-Kate, The Row and Elizabeth & James, into major players in the luxury retail world. So it makes sense that she would connect with a fellow industry insider. (Hey, maybe they bonded over their respective lines of sunglasses. How romantic would that be?)
The 27-year-old star doesn't generally flaunt her relationships, so we doubt she'll be confirming or denying this one anytime soon. Her three-year relationship with actor Justin Bartha did manage to make its fair share of tabloid headlines, though. Mary-Kate, on the other hand, has attracted a lot of attention since she started dating 44-year-old Olivier Sarkozy. Somehow we don't see Ashley going quite that public with the PDA...
For now, we're assuming that both sisters are a little preoccupied with New York Fashion Week and market appointments for The Row to bother with all the chatter. Stay tuned!
