In a post ceremony interview she said: ‘I was up against some really incredible women so I’m really grateful to my followers who took time out of their day to vote for me.
‘Thank you guys so much! I literally wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.’
The star shared masses of posts from the big day and couldn’t believe it when the likes of Kim Kardashian West, Kevin Heart and Robert Downey Jr made their appearance on stage.
Jadé stunned on the red carpet in a sparkling emerald green dress that featured an open back design.
The influencer soaked up the attention, but still kept her wit and charm in a series of cheeky Instagram videos.

‘I’ve been creating content since I was 14. If someone had told me back then where I’d be today, I just wouldn’t have believed them.’
With a following of more than 390,000 people, Jadé was praised for promoting body positivity and addressing tough topics like cyber bullying.
She runs two accounts – one to document beautifully-curated content and another with witty, honest uploads to bust the myth that all influencers’ lives are perfect.
