Even fashionistas get teary when the style love becomes overwhelming, and that’s just what Victoria Beckham experienced at the British Fashion Awards on 28 November 2011. The designer fought back tears as she won one of the night's top prizes, and thanked the people who made her success special.
The former Spice Girls star beat Tom Ford and Burberry to land the Designer Brand award at the ceremony in London. Her designer pal Marc Jacobs handed her the honour.
Taking to the stage, Beckham covered her face as she told the crowd, "I am so nervous," before thanking her soccer star husband David."Without him I wouldn't have had the courage to do what I am doing," she said.
VB posted on her Twitter page after the ceremony, "We won!! Thank u so much to my amazing VB team!!!! Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion awards!"
Other winners included Sir Paul McCartney's daughter Stella, who beat out Beckham for the Red Carpet prize for her designs, and Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton, who was handed the Designer of the Year trophy from British Prime Minster David Cameron's wife Samantha.
TV presenter Alexa Chung was also a big winner - she landed the Ambassador for British Style honour, as voted for by the public.
