Run by “a group of British women including Gynaecological Cancer Fund founder Chloe Delevingne,” their mission is to “empower women everywhere to talk openly — without shyness or shame.”
Cara is seen rocking some TopShop sweatshirts and joggers that are benefitting GCF in the video and says:
“Everyone is beautiful and everyone deserves to be confident in themselves. And I love my lady garden. I’m going to be wearing my Lady Garden sweatshirt naked — because that’s how we should all be. In my birthday suit doing the gardening. My nickname for my lady garden is Randy Jackson.”

But all that pales in comparison when she comes across an ancient evil, which will put her and everyone she loves in danger. Mina is 23, funny, warm, ambitious, but stuck in a boring job that doesn’t challenge her, and not particularly enjoying her current relationship either. Openly and proudly bisexual, she’s happy in her own skin, but has no idea that her housemate Lucy is secretly in love with her. Fiercely loyal, Mina would go through hell to help her friends and family and she’s about to. Because she’s on a collision course with an ancient vampire: Count Dracula…
