With parents like his, it was only a matter of time before Romeo Beckham found himself the star of an advertising campaign.
The 10-year-old son of footballer David Beckham and his wife Victoria, the former Spice Girls singer turned fashion designer, was revealed on Tuesday as the star of the latest campaign from luxury British brand Burberry.
In the campaign for spring/summer 2013, shot by renowned photographer Mario Testino, Romeo wears the brand’s signature trench coat, a shirt and tie and brandishes an umbrella.
Burberry’s chief creative officer, Christopher Bailey, said Romeo was “a joy to work with, and really stole the show”.
“We had such fun shooting the campaign and I think that comes through in the images which really reflect the upbeat spirit of the collection,” he said.
The Beckhams have three boys, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and a one-year-old daughter, Harper.
