Kristen Stewart's new romance is going so well with girlfriend St. Vincent that she's already bringing her to Hollywood galas.

The musician was by Stewart's side tonight when she was honored at Elle magazine's annual Women in Hollywood dinner at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills.

Stewart walked the red carpet solo, but joined St. Vincent (whose real name is Annie Clarke) inside the ballroom. They sat next to each other throughout the evening, but didn't show much PDA.

Dakota Fanning presented Stewart with her Elle award. Calling her friendship with her Twilight co-star "one of the most special bonds in my life," Fanning caused the room to erupt with laughter when she admitted, "She has held my hair back and talked me through heartbreak.

"She has always been there for me when I needed her most and most of all she has taught me the power of being 100 percent yourself 100 percent of the time," Fanning added.

Ben Affleck presented an award to his The Accountant co-star Anna Kendrick. He praised her for everything (talent, intelligence, looks, etc.), but also for being a New England Patriots fan.

"She's not one of those Patriots fans who just thinks Tom Brady is sexy like me--she's the real deal," Affleck said.

Kendrick cracked, "Ben, you look amazing tonight. Can we talk about how nice you look?...You look so great. You look like the guy in the stock photo in a psychology textbook in the chapter about a sociopath."

Honoree Aja Naomi King dedicated her award to her mother. "I felt very lucky growing up because I got to live in the same house with my hero," the How to Get Away With Murder and The Birth of a Nation star said. "I got to witness my hero up close on a daily basis and she would be generous and kind, fierce yet fair, dole out guidance and never back down."

The night included praise for Hillary Clinton and disdain for Donald Trump. Honoree Helen Mirren concluded her remarks with a "few tips to get through life" with the last piece of advice being to "ignore anyone who judges the way you look, especially if he or she is some anonymous miserable creep lurking on the internet or is a bloated small-headed dinosaury hand candidate for president."

The other honorees at the event, hosted by Anthony Anderson and co-sponsored by L'Oréal Paris and Hearts on Fire Diamonds, included Amy Adams, Kathy Bates, Felicity Jones and Lupita Nyong'o.

Presenters and guests included Jeremy Renner, Sharon Stone, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Regina King, Kelly Rowland, Lucy Hale, Vanessa Hudgens, Nikki Reed, Amber Valletta, January Jones, Tracee Ellis Ross, Vivica A. Fox, Juliette Lewis and Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke.
