Victoria Beckham thanks David, kids for British fashion honor
Victoria Beckham's eponymous clothing and accessories line has transformed from pet project to fashion force: The former Spice Girl and footballer's wife took Brand of the Year at Monday night's British Fashion Awards.
Beckham, who was presented the award by designer Marc Jacobs, attributed her success to husband and soccer star David Beckham, and their four kids.
"Without David I wouldn’t have had the courage to do what I am doing," she told the Daily Mail backstage.
David echoed her sentiments on his Facebook page saying, "the boys and I are incredibly proud of Victoria after winning a prestigious British Fashion Award tonight. She has worked so hard and deserves all the recognition."
Beckham's signature cocktail looks, always a tight fit and feminine with hardware detail including exposed zippers, are red carpet favorites among ladies such as Eva Longoria and Heidi Klum.
Other big winners at the British Fashion Awards included Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, who made the little-seen wedding dress of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and Stella McCartney.
