Victoria was on fashionable form for the event, choosing one of her world-famous minimalist all-black ensembles. The former pop star showed off her style credentials in a sleek black sleeveless gown with a halterneck, which she teamed with a pair of her beloved black stilettos.

Her beauty look was equally as striking, with Victoria opting for smokey eye make-up and wearing her brunette tresses up in a slightly dishevelled chignon for ultimate laidback chic.

Before taking to the stage to accept her award, the fashion designer was spotted catching up with fellow British beauty Naomi Campbell, who turned heads herself in an elegant white dress.

Although husband David Beckham is often in the audience at Victoria's speeches to support his wife, on this occasion he was absent as he stayed in London to attend the Pride of Britain awards on Monday night.

Victoria has been quite the jet-setter in recent weeks, travelling between New York and London. Just two weeks ago she unveiled her latest collection during New York Fashion Week, before heading back to London where she and David hosted a star-studded bash at her Dover Street store, with guests including Ellie Goulding and Noel Gallagher.

However, just a few days ago Victoria was back in the Big Apple, as part of her work at the UN. The star attended the Social Good Summit on Sunday, joining a line-up including Queen Rania of Jordan, where she gave a powerful speech about the fight against HIV and AIDS.
