The 47-year-old singer talked about the incident during an interview on Live With Kelly and Ryan on January 18 and revealed that she unintentionally wore a provocative garment on the special occasion.

I was like, “Oh, sorry!” [to William] because I didn’t realise the medal actually goes here on your chest, and Victoria [Beckham] made my dress — me and my mom’s outfit — for the occasion and she put a large slit [across the bodice].
The British national laughed, “I suppose she knew. She really wrecked me.
The Dancing With the Stars veteran looked stunning for the occasion at Buckingham Palace in a vivid red midi dress that accentuated her body. An opening below the neckline and capped sleeves completed the design. She wore shiny Christian Louboutin shoes with the dress.

Brown spoke about her healing process shortly after the MBE ceremony and considered the accomplishment.
She posted a video of herself with her MBE on social media with the caption, “This is me grinning to myself looking at my MBE, but what you don’t see in this post is the huge army of women that are holding me up, giving me strength to keep going because my story is their story and their story is mine.” “Remember that this MBE is YOURS… and OURS. Together, we did this to bring hope back into our lives and to show that what happened to us was a crime. Please don’t give up. Our goal was not merely to draw attention to this epidemic.
