Victoria Beckham - Victoria Beckham Hailed At British Fashion Awards

Victoria Beckham fought back tears at the British Fashion Awards on Monday (28Nov11) as she was handed one of the night's top prizes.
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 dressed in a floor-length backless black gown, Beckham covered her face as she told the crowd, "I am so nervous," before thanking her soccer star husband David.
She said, "Without him I wouldn't have had the courage to do what I am doing".
Taking to Twitter.com after the ceremony she wrote, "We won!! Thank u so much to my amazing VB team!!!! Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion awards!"
Other winners at the prizegiving 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.
The high honour tops an amazing year for Burton, who created Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's royal wedding dress.
TV presenter Alexa Chung was also a big winner - she landed the Ambassador for British Style honour, as voted for by the public.
