Cara Delevingne played multiple roles at the Billboard Music Awards last night. Supermodel, red carpet stylist, and most of all, Megan Thee Stallion superfan.

While on the red carpet, Delevingne stood behind the superstar rapper advising her on how to pose to show off her custom gown until she eventually jumped into the shot to do it for her. The 29-year-old model lifted up Stallion’s brown and black train that draped behind her.

For the occasion, Delevingne went for a more understated look. She slipped into a black cropped long sleeve shirt with two thin straps that tied across her ribcage as well as a thick belt with silver detailing at the sides. She also wore a pair of black suit trousers with pleated detail at the belt line.

On her feet, she wore a pair of combat boots. The model accessorized with multiple thick gold necklaces layered over each other. She also wore a pair of orange aviator-styled sunglasses with a plastic frame.
