I’d like to thank my team. They are my family (team Alexander McQueen, respectively).

The Monday evening, quite stunning if not aforementioned – actress Kate Hudson reminisced how she began her foray into the world of camera, flash, and spotlight.

Hudson remembered not only her first McCartney original she ever wore at the 2001 Oscars®, “I felt like the coolest, hippest girl in the world.  And I remember Stella hand-sewing the hem,” she pinned herself switching on the TV hung over, with next day epiphany, “I’d made every worst-dressed list known to mankind. Later I called Stella — and we laughed our asses off.”

Award for best Designer Brand – to the beautiful and emotionally brimming Victoria Beckham.: Beckham brand put design pedal to the metal this season: it trumped Stella McCartney, Tom Ford and Burberry for the win.

“I’m sorry, I’m so rubbish,” she blushed unbeknownst.  She then turned on waterworks with thanks to her team, kids, and family.

“Without David, I would never have had the courage to do what I did.”
