I never thought the day would come where I would be jealous of a ten year old boy’s career, but that fateful day arrived yesterday when I saw Romeo Beckham’s new Burberry campaign! Modelling alongside Charlie France and Edie Campbell for the ss13 campaign, and shot by none other than Mario Testino, Romeo poses very professionally, Burberry trench and happy go lucky smile in tow. This got me thinking about how crazy it must be for the Beckham children having Victoria and David Beckham as their parents- two of the most globally recognised fashion icons for both men and women. Are the Beckhams fashion’s favourite family?
She’s a hailed fashion designer, a 6 times Vogue cover girl and a style icon to millions. Victoria Beckham reeks of fashion! Impressing the fashion world is no easy task but she achieved impressive critiques with her modern minimalistic designs which range from the feminine to the androgynous, always simple and timeless. Her dresses have been seen on absolutely everybody, from Jessica Ennis at the Sports Personality Awards this week, to Miranda Kerr, Cheryl Cole and bestie Eve Longoria. Her dresses aim to flatter the female form and create curves in all the right places- every girl’s dream. And she’s done a photoshoot with Karl Lagerfeld at Coco Chanel’s home- so bloody jealous!
David is on par with his beautiful wife. Alongside his perfume collaboration with Victoria, he has campaigned for Armani and has his own range at H&M where fans were delighted to discover it was underwear he would be modelling! His fashion icon status has advanced from hairstyle trend-setter from his earlier football days to full-blown style icon for men everywhere. His simple yet effective style matches Victoria’s. Think beanies, knitwear and chunky boots for basketball games with the boys and terrifically tailored, stupidly expensive suits for evening events.
And now it seems all this has rubbed off on the Beckham children. Stepping out as a family, they always look impeccably dressed. And baby Harper already seems to have her mother’s pout perfected and a designer wardrobe to make any baby jealous- if babies knew how to be jealous that is…
So I think I can confirm that the Beckhams are most definitely fashion’s favourite family right now! I look forward to seeing many more fashion campaigns from them.
