Victoria Beckham glittered in a gold dress as she picked up the Luxury Brand of the Year Award at the Walpole British Luxury Awards 2015 held Monday. The fashion designer wore a gold dress from her own collection as she accepted the award.
The dress (Look 14) is from the designer’s upcoming Resort 2016 collection. Her new collection will be available from this month. Her ankle-length dress featured a blouson sleeve jumper, high neck, belted and flared skirt both in a thick knitted fabric.
Beckham accessorized with only a gold watch. Her long brunette tresses were styled in a chic low ponytail with a few strands of her hair framing her chiselled face. For make-up, the designer opted for some bronzer, brown tinted lipstick and smoky eyes.
The mother-of-four finished her look in a pair of black pointed toe pumps. She competed with other heavyweight brands like Alexander McQueen, Burberry and Roksanda to win the award, Mirror UK reported. “Thank you @walpole_uk. Such an honour to be named British Luxury Brand of the Year x vb,” she captioned a picture of herself posing with the prize on Instagram.
The former Spice Girl was visibly delighted as she shared more pictures with her 7.7 million followers.
Meanwhile, the designer who received worldwide critical acclaim for her designs has been nominated for coveted Womenswear Designer of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards (BFA). She has figured in the top three names in the industry in Britain. The BFA will take place at the London Coliseum Nov. 23.
It is a huge accolade for the star; the BFAs are frequently dubbed the Oscars of the fashion world, and the Womenswear Designer of the Year award is the most sought-after of the event. The 41-year-old has twice previously been awarded brand of the year, in 2011 and 2014. She is a three-time nominee for the same award, but this is her first shot at the main prize.
The wife of retired football captain David Beckham is pitted up against Scotland-born Christopher Kane and JW Anderson. The latter is a trailblazer in gender neutral fashion who subsequently has also been named as a nominee in the Menswear Designer category.
