She recently said her foray into fashion was her way of “following her dreams,” and Victoria Beckham‘s dreams seemed to come true Monday night as she earned the designer brand award at the British Fashion Awards in London. Receiving her statuette from pal Marc Jacobs, the fashionista teared up while thanking the British Fashion Council.

“I was really trying to keep it together in the speech without bursting out crying,” she said apologetically, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail. After acknowledging business partner Simon Fuller and her talented team, she got personal, thanking “my parents, my kids and my husband. Without David I wouldn’t have had the courage to do what I am doing,” she shared.

Though her husband wasn’t at the awards — he’s currently traveling with the L.A. Galaxy soccer team — he later took to his Facebook page, writing, “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. It’s amazing what she has achieved tonight, very special.”

Additional winners included Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton (the Duchess of Cambridge‘s wedding gown designer), who nabbed the top award, designer of the year. Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane and Kim Jones also took home various statuettes, and for the second year in a row, Alexa Chung won the British style award, which is voted on by the public. Olivia Palermo, Kate Moss, Kate Hudson, Colin Firth and wife Livia Giuggioli (a proponent of eco-friendly fashion) also attended.

She is actually a very sweet person. I saw her reality show and changed my mind about her. She is charming, sweet and a devoted wife and mother.
That says a lot to me.

Nina, I would have suggested “overcome with tears.”
