Last night, Glamour celebrated their 25th Women of the Year Awards, in which they honor women who have achieved great things and kick general booty in the world, shattering glass ceilings for women everywhere and basically being awesome in every sense of the word. The honorees run the gamut from ballerina Misty Copeland to newfound transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner, and others.

One of the honorees, Victoria Beckham, was presented an award by her son, Brooklyn Beckham, for her work in fashion and her philanthropic work as a UNAIDS Global Goodwill Ambassador. Before her speech, a video montage played in which her husband, David, and two other children, Harper and Romeo, spoke to their mom and wife:

“Victoria, congratulations on an incredible achievement… Have a great night. Enjoy yourself—I have a few people that want to say something to you.”

Romeo, 13: “You’re my mummy of the year: not just this year but every year!”

Cruz,10: “Congratulations, Mummy. You definitely deserve this award. Oh, one more thing: Can you please make kids’ clothes?”

Harper, 4: “I love you, Mummy!”

Brooklyn then took to the stage and said: “We’re all so proud of you, and I’m so excited to be with you tonight to present you with this award. I love you.”



If you’re not already melting on the floor, Victoria’s speech was flawless. She said:

I love what I do and I feel blessed to be given the chance to pursue and fulfill my career ambitions. It started with the Spice Girls and girl power and now I’m channeling that same message to women through my collections. I want to support, empower and really make women feel like the best version of themselves.

Running a business, my work with UNAIDS and most importantly, being a mum, wouldn’t be possible without David. Not only is he the most incredible father, but he’s supportive and someone who loves and inspires me every single day.

Me standing here tonight, accepting this award, proves that if you dream big, and you work hard, there are no limits to what you can achieve. If I can do it, anyone can do it. And that is my message to young girls and young women all around the world.

This is the message we all need — not just women and girls, but all of us, every day. Girl power!
