Christopher Bailey: Romeo Beckham Has Impeccable Taste
Cristopher Bailey has nothing but praise for one of his newest and youngest - Burberry campaign stars, Romeo Beckham. The British brand's chief creative officer revealed that the 10-year old has inherited his mother's love of fashion, and really cared about what he wore during the shoot.
"Romeo loves fashion, completely loves it", Bailey said. "He had a real opinion; he was so involved in what he was wearing. And he was so well mannered and humble - he would never say, 'I don't like this', but he would say, 'Hmm, maybe something else'. He has impeccable taste." The designer's idea to cast the youngster in his shoot came about following a breakfast with Victoria - a decision which he describes as just "one of those things". Bailey's relationship with the Beckham family is a strong one that goes back many years.
"He was an absolute dream to work with. Honestly, is the sweetest - genuinely, so well brought up," he said. "I've known Victoria and those guys for quite a long time; they are just lovely, grounded, gentle-well-mannered little kids."
Romeo stars in the fashion house's spring/summer 2013 campaign - alongside one the designer's other models favourites; Cara Delevingne. The 20-year-old has starred in numerous adverts for the brand - and appeared in countless catwalk shows - and is currently the face of the Burberry Body fragrance.
