For her fifth British Vogue cover, Cara Delevingne is opening up about her first "real" love.

Though she has been notoriously tight-lipped about her relationship with musician St. Vincent, the 23-year-old got very candid about her love life during her interview for the fashion magazine's coveted September issue.

"I'm completely in love… Before, I didn't know what love was—real love," she gushed about her relationship with the 33-year-old. "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."

And if her relationship with a woman means people want to attach a label to her, she's OK with that.

"As a child, I used gay as a bad word, as in, 'that's so gay,'" she admits. "All my friends did," she continued. "I'm obviously in love, so if people want to say I'm gay, that's great."

Still, she hints at the fact that her sexuality is fluid.

"But we're all liquid—we change, we grow," says the cover model, whose Instagram tagline reads "STOP LABELLING, START LIVING."

The Brit babe has definitely grown professionally, adding actress to her resume on top of her incredibly successful modeling career. Though she has an upcoming role in the highly anticipated "Suicide Squad," she reveals certain worries plague her when it comes to her acting career.

"My greatest fear is always that I have just been hired because of my number of followers," says Delevingne, who counts more than 31 million followers on Instagram.

But don't think her insecurities will lead her to settle for less than she feels she's worth.

"I'm still learning," she says." I act for love. I give it my all. I would probably still do it even if I wasn't paid at all. But in terms of equal pay I need to be paid the same as the guy who has equal billing with me. Otherwise I won't do it. Because if you accept less, you're just letting everyone else down and continuing the cycle."
