Rose McGowan and her partner, the non-binary model Rain Dove, made an appearance together at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London on Wednesday night.
The actress, of 45 years, and the model, of 27, seemed loved when they posed together in the red carpet and during the event, hardly hours after Asia Argento returned to Twitter after a parenthesis of six weeks to attack Dove.
Dove wore a dark suit with the event and at one point posed with his hands on McGowan's waist for a couple of shots.

McGowan took to Twitter before the evening to explain why he had decided to wear the raincoat instead of a dress.
& # 39; Breaking News: I've decided what to wear for the Man of the Year awards @BritishGQ tonight & # 39; wrote in a long thread.
"The dress code says that women should wear cocktail dresses or evening dresses," she said, "mainly because that type of dress gives me the Hollywood PTSD that is peculiar to someone like me."
She added: & # 39; A survivor of the old Hollywood sex symbols machine. Very few, if any, survive with a mind completely intact, it is not surprising that Garbo withdrew from the general public. It is a peculiar beast, our kind of world, and unknowable to the majority. "
McGowan added that she wore a blue dress with gold sleeves from Topshop, which she received for $ 19, under the raincoat, and that her shoes were a vegan model of Stella McCartney.
In her thread, the actress, who turned 45 on Wednesday and used the hashtag #birthdaymusing, gave Dove a thank-you message.
"I will be with my love @raindovemodel, someone who has brought the energy of water to my fire," he wrote. I've been allowed the space [to] Heal and explore by showing my softest side to the outside world. Remember to always be what I say I am.
Enamored: The couple posed for a series of couple photos, including one that saw Dove resting his hand on McGowan's shoulder while tenderly watching the actress
Thought process: McGowan explained on Twitter before the event that she chose to use the trench after being thrown by the dress code, which required women to wear cocktail dresses.

Earlier on Wednesday, Argento attacked Dove in a series of tweets.
The actress, who had been absent from social media for the past six weeks, returned to Twitter after the model criticized Argento's lawyer for refusing to acknowledge that he had a sexual relationship with actor Jimmy Bennett when the child was younger than age.
I will help you 100% throughout this process with the resources you have that can help the healing needed, but you must be honest. I can not help a dishonest being, "wrote Dove.
Argento responded by returning the fire: "Very funny coming from a sickly pathological liar like you, who made money selling text messages selected to portray me for something I am not".
His return to social networks came at the same time that X Factor Italia formally announced that Argento would appear only in the first half of the new season of the show, and will be replaced by the live episodes when they go on the air this year.
The Italian star, 42, also used her return to Twitter to attack Dove for the information they conveyed about the death of Anthony Bourdain.
Minor: Dove, 27, criticized Argento and his lawyer for recent statements, including his recent claim that the actress was sexually assaulted by Jimmy Bennett in 2014 (previous couple at that 2014 meeting in California)
Shots fired: "Very funny coming from a sickly pathological liar like you, who made me money selling selected text messages," Argento tweeted (up in a Twitter exchange since Wednesday)
It was the texts of Dove with Argento that confirmed that the actress had sex with Bennett in a hotel room in California in 2014, more than a decade after the actress worked with the child at age 6 in his film adaptation of The Heart of JT Leroy. It is deceptive about all things.
Argento, who was one of the first women to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, initially lied about her meeting with Bennett after a New York Times report that revealed that the young man had received a payment of $ 380,000 from the partner of the actress Anthony Bourdain when he threatened to file a lawsuit of $ 7.5 million.
Just hours after denying having sex with Bennett, TMZ published a text exchange between Dove and Argento, confirming most of the Times report.
Argento and her lawyer now claim that she was the victim, and Bennett sexually abused her that day at the hotel.
Dove expressed his opinion on this latest version of Argento's events by writing in a tweet: "NO Jimmy Bennet did not rape Asia, we must keep all beings to the truth here." It is not necessary for you to know the whole story, but what we know It must be true.
Argento pointed to Dove for making statements about Bourdain's death.
She posted a handful of cryptic text messages that she had with the model that seem to suggest that they both believe that the famous chef did not take his own life.
Why did you tell me you knew the truth about my partner's death and pretended to be a kind of 007? You wrote me hundreds of lies for more than a month. I have all the text messages. Now is the time for YOU to tell the truth, if you can. Your ex calls you a pathological liar, "Argento wrote.
She continued saying, "Then tell me why you invented that blunt, huge and rude lie about you and your RED knowing" the truth "about Anthony's death?
Conspiracy: months before, Bourdain had agreed to finance Argento's $ 380,000 payment to Bennett, who was threatening to sue the actress for $ 7.5 million (tweets from the previous Wednesday)
Allegations: Dove told Argento that he had divulged information about Bourdain's death in texts published by the actress on Wednesday (above)
Dove, who was engaged to Argento during his attack, replied: "That was not a lie. We did a great job including, that you saw yourself, the toxicology report that the French authorities simplified before the media. And then, he wrote and said "yes, there was alcohol". And I'm not 007. I'm just part of a common research team. "
Argento then posted a text conversation he had with Dove about documents related to the death of Bourdain that he hoped to get for a journalist for an investigative article about the Emmy winner.
In another exchange shared by Argento, Dove writes about a & # 39; network & # 39; involved in Bourdain's death and about the dangerous & # 39; that was to investigate the matter.
They also claim to have seen documents and exchanges between unknown parties, which caused Argento to tweet: Go and tell @CNN. What you did (if you did it, I very much doubt it) is criminal. "
Dove replied: "Very good, love. But you are only diverting. I will have my own path, it will clearly be a fun week. But you still have to own urs. 100% You had a sexual dynamic with Jimmy Bennett. Whether he felt used or extorted or that his "friend" was rude, the commitment still happened. and he did not rape you.
Argento did not question Dove's claims in that tweet, and instead accused the model of deviating, before adding, "Do not call me love." All that remains of your answers is betrayal and deceit.
He later closed his attack by writing, "You can not help it, but he's still lying, right? He never sent me or showed me any documents. And remember, there was a witness."
Dove was disconnected at the same time, but not before publishing some concluding remarks.
"Ok, through the gates of Hell, I walk with you voluntarily, even if only for the truth to see the light of the fire," the model told Argento in a publication.
Dove then said in a final tweet: "It's just that U gets angry- U are trapped and want to take everything away with U. I'm not afraid of what's coming. But the truth still remains. You slept with Jimmy Bennett. You lied when you demand that others accused of sexual assault be honest. This hurts the voices of the victims everywhere. "
The model is a new acquaintance of Argento, whom he met through McGowan.
Dove began dating the actress earlier this year in the wake of McGowan's raging farce to a transgender woman in a New York City book signing for her Brave memoirs that many found transphobic.
Following that incident, Dove offered to help the actress repair her image.
Dove said that she published the texts with the blessing of McGowan, and also sent her exchanges with the actress to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
RAIN PIGEON IN ASIA ARGENTO UNDER THE SEXUAL SCANDAL
"Before I begin, I would like to point out to everyone that I am only making a statement to clarify the details in order to avoid further tensions or damage from rumors or accusations against / against innocent parties." It is important not to exaggerate or glorify the actions of any individual who present evidence in a case of sexual assault because it is the basics that one should do.
"I can confirm that the text messages are between Asia Argento and I. When I told the police, I remained in social silence because I did not want to be part of the narrative or distract myself from the path to justice. The situation is short and dry: a person admitted to a sexual commitment with a minor (according to the age established by California) that is an illegal act that could qualify as a legal violation. continued without informing / blocking the account / rejection / action in writing When the individual made it clear that they were not going to be honest about their commitment, I delivered materials that can contribute to an honest investigation.
& # 39; All victims deserve justice. Justice can rarely exist without honesty. In a case of sexual assault, it is important to support and believe the victim, while allowing due process. I believe that all beings accused of a crime have the right to prove their innocence. For many victims of sexual assault, your justice may never appear in court due to lack of evidence or the passage of time. It is heartbreaking and cruel. However, I still fully believe in the concession and balance of both values. Support and create, allow due process. That is why when Asia Argento requested assistance during this case declaring total innocence, I systematically took them to the list of things they would need to clear their name. Proof that they did not pay this person, proof that they did not approve any payment if they had occurred, proof that they had indeed been harassed and rejected all sexual advances by sexual action or verbally, proof that they had not committed themselves sexually through an alibi, and some more.
"Occasionally, in the past people approached me knowing they were guilty, admitted guilt immediately, and my space in their lives has guided them through the process of rehabilitation with the community and changing their negative actions to proactive. They can return to being productive members of the community while justice also prevails.The key to the agreement to help is that they intend to do what is necessary to rectify a situation.Unfortunately, Asia did not have that intention.This is a person who represents a certain ideal and that has asked all those accused of sexual assault to be honest about their experiences in order to do justice to the victims, however, when the NYT statement came out, in which Asia denied any sexual commitment, It was then that it became clear that they were not going to follow their own ethics, I received the original statement from Asia before they went out into the world, they admitted their sexual commitment. In him they despised the victim, they minimized the integrity of the reporter Kim Severson using the power of culpability of the opinion of his deceased former partner Anthony Bourdain, and robbed all parties of his truth. It was painful to read. I had hoped that this narrative would change after our conversation, but unfortunately the piece went directly to the press.
"Before bringing this information to the police, I spoke with Rose McGowan, since she is the person who introduced me to Asia." I was certainly a little nervous because I knew that Asia was an important person in Rose's life. the knowledge that he was going to go to the police, Rose immediately agreed that it was the right action, not begging or negotiating, without anger, just in fact, I know that this is a painful loss of community in Rose's life and I am proud of Your dedication to the truth It is tempting for many to cover their loved ones in difficult times, but when a victim is involved on the other side we should think about them True justice has no prejudices.
"I would also like to address the allegations that Jimmy Bennet extorted Asia Argento simply saying, keep both actions separate, they are two different accusations and all the victims of a crime deserve justice, all the culprits must be honest. case between HW and Asia Argento is separate from the case of Jimmy Bennet and that Asia deserves the same respect in that case that Jimmy should receive in this case.Your choice to lie to the NYT does not mean that they lie about HW. be separate and impartial I believe that most beings have the power to change Asia has contributed a strong voice to the #MeToo movement and has encouraged many in their nation and around the world to present their truths. Although public opinion may exist over time, through honesty, dialogue and rehabilitation, this person can become a strong advocate to justice once more. Especially unique as a person who is experiencing both sides of the coin.
"We can not allow this unique case to crumble the power and momentum of a movement that has saved so many.The fact that a person is a celebrity or more visible does not make them THE VOICE or a more IMPORTANT voice than any other being. That has been part of #MeToo, they are all equal and their struggles are equally valid, we must remember that Until then, let the truth shine its light so we can see the way to a solution Keep the light on with patience.
