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 so incredibly shallow.

Some women would give anything to have a supportive husband…including myself. I’m happy for her.

Great assessment Tara, especially since you know Victoria Beckham personally.

Unlike other “celebrity designers,” I think that she truly knows fashion and has a great sense of style. The award was well deserved.

Shouldn’t the headlines say Victoria Beckham OVERCOME by tears?

She never smiles and believe me she’s in it for the money, she seems to be all about the money.
