Kristen Stewart and St Vincent stepped out together this week, make their red carpet debut.
The pair arrived together at the Vogue party in LA on Wednesday night, going public with their romance for the first time.
Vincent and Stewart are rumoured to have been dating for the last few weeks and have been spotted out and about together on a number of occasions.
But the Hollywood fashion event marked the first time that they had attended a public event together, putting the rumours to rest.
St. Vincent split from her model ex Cara Delevingne this past summer after a year of dating. The singer was first spotted with Stewart in early October when they attended the New York Film Festival together.
Stewart previously dated producer Alicia Cargile. She talked with ET earlier this week about being more open about her personal life recently.
I think it takes a minute to sort of acclimate to communicating with so many people at one time, with like, ‘the masses,’ you know. I think it’s only beneficial, like… for me to have so many pathways open — it ends up kind of not allowing people to misconstrue you.”
However, while the interview carried a positive message overall, it contained the line:
Her parents seem to think girls are just a phase for Cara, and they may be correct.”
In response, an online petition was set up, calling for the magazine to apologise. The petition received than 20,000 signatures.
Cara as now also weighed in on the comments.
Speaking to the New York Times, Cara– who is currently dating musician St Vincent – said:
My sexuality is not a phase. I am who I am.”
However, she also added that while she was flattered by the show of support online, she was sure the article was “nothing malicious”.
On learning to block out her life’s distractions, she said:
Being in love helps, you know? If you’re in love with someone, you can be with them like no one else is in the room. Acting is like that. It’s like taking that feeling and turning it on so nothing else matters when you’re looking in another actor’s face.”
Delevingne recently called out Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott for opposing same-sex marriage – at the Australian première of Paper Towns.
Tony Abbott, you better listen to the rest of the world and carry on. Go with it.”
Cara Delevingne has been talking in Australia about how happy she is that it’s becoming more accepted across the world to speak about sexuality.
The bisexual model-turned-actress – who is in a relationship with singer St Vincent – told Daily Mail Australia that she was pleased to see that strides that were being made in terms of equality.
Speaking at the Sydney premiere for her new film Paper Towns, she said:
I think everyone has a right to be whoever they want to be, so I’m just very happy. I think it’s wonderful that you know, it’s being accepted more and more… I’ve been pretty open about myself from the beginning.”
Ireland recently voted yes in a same-sex marriage referendum and the US introduced same-sex marriage too, but Cara encouraged Australia’s prime minister to follow suit.
Talking to the Mail at the Australian première of her latest film Paper Towns, Cara Delevingne, has called out the politician.
Tony Abbott, you better listen to the rest of the world and carry on. Go with it. I’ve been pretty open about myself from the beginning. I think it’s wonderful that you know, it’s being accepted more and more. And I think everyone has a right to be whoever they want to be. So I’m just very happy.”
Australian Prime Minster Tony Abbott is a staunch opponent of equal marriage, but is facing pressure to allow his MPs a free vote on a cross-party marriage bill, following progress in Ireland and the United States.
Delevingne, who is in a same-sex relationship with musician St Vincent, spoke about her new relationship and sexual preference in a recent interview with Vogue.
It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it. 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. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
As a bisexual woman myself, I’ve experienced hurtful comments like this many times. People are quick to assume queer women’s identities are a ‘phase’ and to refuse to recognise the important relationships in their lives — an attitude which can cause depression, result in families rejecting their daughters and even put young women at risk of suicide.
Vogue should have taken this opportunity to combat negative stereotypes, not reinforce them. We should be applauding Cara for coming out as queer, and being open about her relationships with men and women.”
Delevingne is considered the ‘it’ girl of our time. She appears in ad campaigns, music videos, and movies. The tabloid’s love her, we love her and fans love her. And the fact that she’s in a relationship with a woman and proud is great.
Cara Delevingne is the ‘it’ girl of our time. She appears in ad campaigns, music videos, and movies. The tabloid’s love her, we love her and fans love her. And the fact that she’s in a relationship with a woman and proud of it has been the least focused-on part of her career thus far.
In the July issue of Vogue, the 22-year-old speaks candidly about her sexuality and how she’s in lover with her girlfriend St Vincent (aka Annie Clark).
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. And for those words to come out of my mouth is actually a miracle.”
We couldn’t be happier for her, especially considering the long road, which led to this moment in her life.
When first coming to terms with her sexuality, she revealed:
It took me a long time to accept the idea, until I first fell in love with a girl at 20 and recognized that I had to accept it. But I have erotic dreams only about men. I had one two nights ago where I went up to a guy in the back of a VW minivan, with a bunch of his friends around him, and pretty much jumped him … The thing is, if I ever found a guy I could fall in love with, I’d want to marry him and have his children. And that scares me to death because I think I’m a whole bunch of crazy, and I always worry that a guy will walk away once he really, truly knows me.”
Cara doesn’t just open up about her love life though, as she also confesses about issues with partying, modelling, and struggle with depression.
On the difference between modeling and acting:
The thrill of acting is making a character real. Modeling is the opposite of real. It’s being fake in front of the camera.”
On wanting to leave the modeling world:
I’m not sure I understand what fashion is anymore. I admit I was terrified to leave. I mean, the bubble gives you a kind of dysfunctional family. When you’re in it, you get it. And the second you’re out of it, you’re like, What the hell just happened?”
On her mom’s struggle with heroine addiction:
It shapes the childhood of every kid whose parent has an addiction. You grow up too quickly because you’re parenting your parents. My mother’s an amazingly strong person with a huge heart, and I adore her. But it’s not something you get better from, I don’t think. I know there are people who have stopped and are fine now, but not in my circumstance. She’s still struggling.”
On suffering from depression as a teen:
This is something I haven’t been open about, but it’s a huge part of who I am. All of a sudden I was hit with a massive wave of depression and anxiety and self-hatred, where the feelings were so painful that I would slam my head against a tree to try to knock myself out. I never cut, but I’d scratch myself to the point of bleeding. I just wanted to dematerialize and have someone sweep me away.”
And she continued, sharing:
I smoked a lot of pot as a teenager, but I was completely mental with or without drugs. I thought that if I wanted to act, I’d need to finish school, but I got so I couldn’t wake up in the morning. The worst thing was that I knew I was a lucky girl, and the fact that you would rather be dead . . . you just feel so guilty for those feelings, and it’s this vicious circle. Like, how dare I feel that way? So you just attack yourself some more.”
Which lead to her low point. Cara explained:
Full-on bubble. I was packing my bags, and suddenly I just wanted to end it. I had a way, and it was right there in front of me. And I was like, I need to decide whether I love myself as much as I love the idea of death.” And then a song started playing on her laptop, Outkast’s SpottieOttieDopaliscious, which had been played at the funeral of a friend who had recently died of a heroin overdose. “It felt like a warning from him. And it made me so furious with myself.”
No one can ever say she’s had it easy. She’s gone through so much, but at least has the support of so many good friends.
In June, they appeared side-by-side in a Vogue bridal spread, with Jenny Shimizu wearing a hot white tux and Michelle Harper rocking a white and black polka dot ball gown.
Now they have finally tied the knot, days after Shimizu ex-lover Angelina Jolie married Brad Pitt.
Shimizu, a former Calvin Klein model, and brand consultant Harper met at a 2012 party.
Shimizu told the New York Times of meeting Harper…
“I didn’t believe it myself until I saw it. It’s like so many things about her. There are these misconceptions and generalizations that don’t fit this person who is full of spirit and down-to-earthiness.”
Photos of big day were released on Wednesday which saw Shimizu sporting black sunglasses and what appears to be a dark suit.
Model and actress Jenny Shimizu and her fiancé, brand consultant Michelle Harper, will feature this month in Vogue. The couple often make a strike state through their fashion look, and have no trouble turning heads when they enter a room.
They are a fashion force to be reckoned with, and it doesn’t matter where they are or what they’re doing – these two look good. However, in Vogue’s new bridal spread they reach new heights. The feature showcases over 30 bridal looks – see the full spread here.
Sarah Jessica Parker invites a Vogue reporter into her home, and answers to 73 questions in five minutes – revealing everything from her distaste for parsley, love of Greece, and bias of globes that glow.
