I’m having a couple of weeks from hell when it comes to getting every done I need to get done. And that has caused me to miss a few things I would normally showcase on Leo Sigh as I think they’re lovely — things like this. An incredibly sweet video of Victoria Beckham being awarded the Brand of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards 2014 on December 1st.
Victoria was up for the award along with Alexander McQueen and Stella McCartney, but it was Beckham who was victorious this year.
Not surprising really when you think what an amazing year she has had — named the most successful British entrepreneur of the year, given the Philanthropy Award at the Global Gift Gala for all the charity work she does and, of course, the accolades she received for opening her new store in London’s Mayfair district.
During her thank you speech, Beckham thanked her husband David, her kids, the British fashion industry for their support, her team, and her parents. It was when she mentioned her parents she broke down in tears.
Watch Victoria Beckham’s speech below. I have to say it’s nice to see her showing a little bit more emotion than usual. Quite sweet really. And that’s why I’m sharing it. After all, if I missed it, you might have missed it too. And that would be a pity.
