Twelve-year-old Romeo picks up the mantle from stylish father David and mum Victoria; becomes face of top British brand's Christmas collection
Twelve-year-old Romeo Beckham, who made his modelling debut for British fashion brand Burberry last year, launched the company’s Christmas collection at a glittering function in London on Monday.

It’s in the genes
Taking off from his fashion-conscious father and former England football captain David and pop-singer-turned-fashion designer mother Victoria, Romeo did exceedingly well in the campaign where he almost effortlessly posed for a series of still shots besides shooting for a short film on the brand too.
Proud parents: David & Victoria Beckham
In fact, it was Romeo’s successful launch last year that made the brand invite him once again for their new initiative. The brand reportedly earned a 12 percent profit in the product line launched by Romeo last year. Romeo, is David-Victoria’s second eldest son.
The brand’s creative director Christopher Bailey described Romeo as an “utter joy” to work with. “He has charm, style and great energy,” said Bailey.
Ironically, the little Beckham had invited a school friend for the function that saw around 500 VIP guests in attendance. And the two pals left the venue around 8 pm to be fresh for school the next day!
