Victoria Beckham gets teary after winning British Fashion Award
Victoria Beckham has long said that she has left music behind her and that she wants to focus on fashion and it seems that her hard work has finally paid off.
Those of you fashionistas with a Vogue magazine subscription will no doubt already be well aware of the outcome of the British Fashion Awards held at The Savoy last night, but for those of you who don’t – Posh won the British Fashion Award for Designer Brand.
When accepting her award, Victoria got a little bit choked up and was holding back tears. Speaking to reporters backstage, she said: 'It really does mean so much, that's why I got so emotional when I was up there. I can't thank my team enough. Without them I wouldn't be in this position. I always dreamed this would happen one day, so it really is a dream come true. This is such a big deal for me. I'm just really overwhelmed, and trying to keep it together and speak, and then I just came bursting out crying.'
The Designer of the Year award went to head designer at Alexander McQueen, Sarah Burton. It’s unsurprising, since one of her creations was the most viewed (and talked about) dresses of the year – Kate Middleton’s wedding dress.
The full list of winners were: Designer of the Year – Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen Emerging Talent Award - Ready-to-Wear - Mary Katrantzou Emerging Talent Award – Accessories - Tabitha Simmons Emerging Talent – Menswear - Christopher Raeburn Model Award - Stella Tennant British Style Award - Alexa Chung (second year running) Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator - Sam Gainsbury Red Carpet Award - Stella McCartney New Establishment Award - Christopher Kane Accessory Designer Award - Charlotte Olympia Outstanding Achievement Award 2011 - Sir Paul Smith Menswear Award - Kim Jones
