I recorded moments of emotion at the British Fashion Awards last night

Then John Galliano surprised us all and made an appearance at the awards for Anna

Swarovski baubles sparkled on the tables

Fashion is always imagined as bitch central.

John Galliano bravely appeared at the British Fashion Awards to present an award to Anna Wintour

And what more likely place to diss and hiss than at the British Fashion Awards?

Kylie Minogue, Giancarlo Giammetti and American actress Anna Kendrick

But although I heard a few catty comments and mutterings, the general mood was of sweet emotion.

I shall never forget the pride and joy on the faces of Terry and Tricia Jones, who discovered Edward Enninful and made him stylist at i-D at the age of 18. Now 42, he has grown into being a super stylist for W magazine.

Victoria Beckham won the Brand of the Year award

I witnessed the tears of emotion backstage from Sarah Burton, the sweetest and most sensitive designer for Alexander McQueen; Kate and Naomi stepped in to support her.

I loved seeing Kylie flopping on a chair backstage – and then dancing down the podium.

Catwalking photographer Chris Moore won the Special Recognition award of the night, and I was honoured to present it to him

David Beckham’s pride in Victoria’s award was almost as wide and open as the plunging back of her sweater.

A wonderful moment was when I presented the Special Recognition award for my dear friend, catwalk photographer Chris Moore, whom I have worked with for 25 years.

Kate Moss has her hair tended to backstage

So many different emotions – but nothing to compare with John Galliano, first hesitant, then increasingly relaxed as he thanked Anna Wintour for being there for him in good times and bad when he presented her with her Outstanding Achievement award.

You could have heard a Swarovski crystal drop (and there were plenty of those on the tables) as Galliano was welcomed back into the fashion fold.
