Beckham Brood for Burberry

Romeo Beckham, the 10-year-old son of former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and soccer star David Beckham, is now the new face of Burberry.  (Guess that coordinates with today’s “Look-of-the-Day,” too!)  The ad, shot by Mario Testino, features the Beckhams’ boy looking pretty sophisticated for a fifth-grader, donning a classic Burberry trench coat and matching plaid umbrella.  Famed chief creative officer Christopher Bailey said Romeo was “a joy to work with and really stole the show.”  Although he’s young, it’s no surprise he’s already headed towards a fashion career… As the son of England’s 2nd most famous couple, his mother, Victoria, segued her pop career into high-end style by creating her own label, when all odds were against her; both parents modeled underwear for Giorgio Armani, and Victoria was the face of Spring 2008 for Marc Jacobs, as well.  Romeo’s debut can be seen here: Romeo Beckham in Burberry Spring/Summer 2013.
