Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson step out in NYC for the TrevorLIVE Gala

Monday night in New York City, The Trevor Project hosted its annual TrevorLIVE Gala bringing out a slew of stars to support LGBTQ youth in crisis.

Cara Delevingne was honored with the 2019 Hero Award for her work in the LGBTQ community and using her platform to speak out about mental health issues. The 26-year-old supermodel stunned in a white Balmain cape blazer mini dress with black high boots. While she and girlfriend, Ashley Benson, did not walk the carpet together, Cara confirmed their relationship during her speech.

"I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who helped me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought."
