Beckham and Brook at Fashion Awards

Victoria Beckham, Kelly Brook and Naomi Campbell dazzled on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards.

Supermodel Naomi received a Special Recognition gong for 25 years in the industry.

Spice Girl turned fashion force Victoria was nominated for Designer Brand of the Year - but the award went to bag-maker Mulberry.

She told Sky News: "It's great for me to be nominated. I'm just here to celebrate ... that's a really big deal. It gives me a lot of hope for the future of my brand."

Award-winner Naomi, 40, said: "They always said modelling lasts for 11 years. I think the group of women that I came up with are such incredible women... It's great that we can still be working. We like what we do."

She sobbed throughout her speech, according to the Daily Mirror, and thanked partner Vladimir Doronin for putting up with "a wild, wild woman".

Samantha Cameron, the Prime Minister's wife, was the guest of honour at Tuesday night's ceremony, sharing the red carpet with Claudia Schiffer, Thandie Newton, Yasmin Le Bon and presenter Alexa Chung.

David Walliams' wife Lara Stone, the face of Calvin Klein, won the Model award and, according to the Mirror, joked: "I hope this will get me recognition. Usually when I walk down the street with my husband people ask if I'm Matt Lucas."

Alexa won the British Style gong, voted for by the public, and reportedly said she picked her Chanel gown as she liked "to look like a four-year-old".

Hosted by TV presenter Claudia Winkleman, the ceremony honoured the late Alexander McQueen with the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design award.
