British designer and entrepreneur Victoria Beckham wore one of her own designs at the Global Gift Gala in London over the weekend, where she was also given a philanthropy award for all her charity work.



Beckham was at the Four Seasons Hotel in London to also support close friend Eva Longoria who, with singer Ricky Martin, co-hosted the star-studded evening.

The Global Gift Gala in London was part of a nine-city network of charitable events that are put on to thank those who work with those charities that empower women and support children’s issues. The London evening was one of the most highly-attended.

Victoria Beckham was awarded the Global Gift Philanthropreneur Award for her work with the United Nations AIDS Foundation, an organization she works closely with, traveling to Africa to work with AIDS clinics on that continent as a Goodwill Ambassador.

Beckham has also been a supporter of the Elton John AIDS Foundation for more than a decade.

Watch Victoria Beckham talk about her work with the UN AIDS Foundation below, and why visiting Africa and seeing how big a problem AIDS is there changed her.
