Victoria Beckham In Victoria Beckham – 2011 British Fashion Awards

A tearful Victoria Beckham collected her award for Designer Brand of the Year at the 2011 British Fashion Awards from designer BFF Marc Jacobs last night.

With her parents in the audience you can see it meant a lot to her. I found myself welling up too hearing her acceptance speech in which she thanked David for giving her the courage to become a designer.

Between sobs she apologized for ‘being rubbish’ as she struggled to hold back the tears.

The designer opted to wear a black halter backless dress with a pleated skirt from her Fall 2011 collection.

The pictures aren’t doing her much justice because she looked sensational in real life.

She opted for a pop of colour via her burgundy nail colour, black Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodil’ pumps and a bouffant with a low bun.

You’ll be surprised to learn that she’s very animated and not as stiff and cold as the press love to make her out to be.

She spent a lot of time with her team who she thanked in her acceptance speech saying, “I couldn’t do it without you”.

    I really admire Victoria Beckham. I think she is a strong role model for young women today. She holds her position in the spotlight with grace and dignity. I think she proves herself again and again at being an impeccable mother, wife and designer and i’m delighted fashion world is acknowledging that!

    VB has a new #superfan

    The yellow dress is divine! I wish VB wore that instead, or a brighter color. The black works well for her but it’s a littl bland.

  6. Nadine November 29, 2011 at 12:02 #

    Agreed. She looks sensational in that video, although I don’t like the dress.

  7. hauteness November 29, 2011 at 12:28 #

    She’s hands down my style favorite! both for her personal style and her chic & timeless collections. Love my Poshy!

    She looks lovely. I prefer it full length as she is wearing it. The black is a tad severe. Midnight navy would have softened this a bit.

      Agree that it would have looked great in dark blue or even in a warm brown. But she looks great.

    she relli does look sensational….

  10. robbie November 29, 2011 at 12:53 #

    zzzzzzzzzzzzz boring.

    I’m so happy for her! You’re right about the pics not doing her justice. When you see her walk on stage to accept the award in her video she looks so graceful and statuesque.

  12. Elaine2 November 29, 2011 at 13:11 #

    Awesome!

  13. Giuseppi Giraffe November 29, 2011 at 13:46 #

    This is so beautiful. She looks very classy- I’m actually glad she didn’t do the yellow dress. I’ve really grown to love her.

    I respect this woman so much – and that’s something one often says about celebrities nowadays. Her line is so incredibly well-crafted and she carries herself with such sophistication. Love!

  15. Jerusa November 29, 2011 at 15:12 #

    Im so glad she won! Well deserved. She’s become a role model. FC when do we get to see what were YOU wearing? ;)

    • Fashion Critic November 29, 2011 at 15:17 #

      I didn’t take my camera. It didn’t fit into my clutch :(

      • Linda November 29, 2011 at 15:34 #

        Oh no! That’s too bad, I was looking forward to that. I’m sure you looked impeccable. Thanks for all the amazing coverage and the videos.

  16. Jerusa November 29, 2011 at 15:24 #

    Awww that’s too bad :( hmmm they should make smaller camaras, for cases like this jeje

    • Fashion Critic November 29, 2011 at 15:33 #

      I agree

  17. Linda November 29, 2011 at 15:35 #

    She does look wonderful, even though I do not always like her looks, this is perfect.

  18. maria November 29, 2011 at 15:45 #

    i love her dress and updo. Find the makeup around the eyes a bit too strong. Otherwise a stunning look.

    She is phenomenal and looked it, just beautiful!! I am so glad she won!!

  20. Hannah November 29, 2011 at 18:05 #

    For some reason she reminds me so much of Daphne guines sin the top photo, probably the hair and the pose.
    She seems like a very sweet person and I have never agreed with the press’s despiction of her.

    FC I have a question. For the 2011 designer awards, are the designers nominated for their spring 2011 and fall 2011 collections this year? Or what they showed at their runway shows which is a season ahead.

    • Fashion Critic November 30, 2011 at 08:20 #

      Spring and fall 2011

  22. Mariha November 30, 2011 at 04:57 #

    Hi FC, thanks for all the great coverage. I’ve been following your website for a while now and it has easily become one of my favourites!

    I was wondering if you’ve ever gotten a chance to talk to VB?

    • Fashion Critic November 30, 2011 at 08:18 #

      Unfortunately no. She was with her team and I didn’t want to disturb her

  23. Joy November 30, 2011 at 06:11 #

    Vicky B is my all time fav fashionista so I’m just sooo happy for her. I truly believe this is what she has wanted to do all along. Everything else was just a stepping stone to lead to her dream of being a “real” designer. Then to get reputable praise is just wonderful. Oh, and don’t believe for a second she is cold. I think she is just guarded and driven. Do we remember the way the popzs and fans have treated her? You go girl!!!!

  24. gurlygurl November 30, 2011 at 06:29 #

    I want to love this look but I can’t get passed how extremely thin she looks. I know she’s petite and has been very thin for some time but I’ve loved her looks since the birth of baby as she’s looked the healthiest she has in a while. This unnerves me somewhat. I think the dress is nice and her hair and make up look lovely but it doesn’t feel quite right. I’ve seen her in interviews before and was aware there was more to her than her red carpet persona and i think she’s a wonderful designer.

  25. Rory November 30, 2011 at 17:39 #

    FC did you ask her about her top? Remember you said you would find out somehow

    • Fashion Critic November 30, 2011 at 17:43 #

      She was wearing a Prada dress

  26. Do November 30, 2011 at 20:41 #

    Great look but I don’t get all these “she’s a great role model! She’s my idol” comments. She’s another celebrity these days more famous for being famous than for having talent.

  27. Seth December 1, 2011 at 07:41 #

    I’m glad she won, well deserved and she looked amazing! as much as the saffron colour would have been a delight, it would have been too much for the event, so i love this!
