One of the reasons we all love Cara Delevingne so much (aside from her being a *stunning* and talented model/actress) is because of how real she is – how genuine, candid, and hilarious she seems to be on social media and during interviews. Cara is never one to pull punches or hide parts of herself from the public. Of course, as with all high-profile celebs, it’s important to remember that we, the public, aren’t entitled to every single detail about their lives, sexuality, or relationships – which is why it completely made sense for Cara to keep her relationship with musician Annie Clark (aka, St. Vincent) private for as long as she did. But now, Cara is opening up about that relationship – and we love her outpouring of love for her long-term GF.

In a recent cover interview with Vogue UK for its September issue, Cara addresses her relationship with St. Vincent (which she had confirmed back in 2015), gushing about how happy she is with her lady love.

“I’m completely in love… Before, I didn’t know what love was — real love […] I didn’t understand the depth of it. I always used to think it was you against the world. Now I know the meaning of life is love. Whether that’s for yourself or for the world or your partner.”

Oh my gosh. Swooning.

Cara has such a mature and deep understanding of love, and hearing her express this to the world is absolutely beautiful. It certainly takes a depth of maturity to acknowledge that, in past relationships, you may not have really known what love was. I think many of us can recognize this realization about true love that we all come to in our first, serious relationship.

The 23-year-old has been open about her bisexuality for a while now, having not-at-all-secret relationships with Michelle Rodriguez and her BFF Taylor Swift’s ex Harry Styles, but it wasn’t always such an easy road for her. Back in 2015 she told Vogue that she initially was confused by her sexuality as a child, and that the idea of being gay frightened her: “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.”

Now that she’s all-in on her relationship with St. Vincent, she’s ~completely~ at ease with herself and her identity – something we can all admire and aspire to.

“I’m obviously in love, so if people want to say I’m gay, that’s great. But we’re all liquid—we change, we grow,” Cara said in her recent interview.

YES, girl. 100% YES. Keep on being your fabulous, confident self, Cara, and don’t ever change. And congrats to the beautiful couple on their amazing, loving relationship!
