The fashion designer, who was supported at the British Fashion Awards 2014 by her husband David, 39, couldn't contain her emotions and thanked her other half, business partner Simon Fuller and her fellow former Spice Girls after pursuing her fashion dream following the band's split, reported Daily Mirror.

As she went to pick up her award for her fashion empire, she told guests, "We've come a long way since the Spice Girl dressing room days." She also confessed that she could be a "right pain in the butt" and didn't understand how Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton could be so supportive.

The crowd cheered when it was announced that she won and she thanked the British public as she said they had supported her and this was where she had built her brand. The event was also attended by Rihanna, supermodel Cara Delevingne, pop star Ellie Goulding and singer Nicole Scherzinger.
