Romeo Beckham 'so stylish'

Romeo Beckham loves fashionable clothes and has developed a strong sense of style.

The fashion conscious youngster is the son of designer Victoria Beckham and her soccer star husband David.

The ten-year-old became the face of British brand Burberry last year and chief creative officer Christopher Bailey has explained how the youngster's involvement came about.

“[It was] one of those things," Christopher revealed to UK newspaper The Times. “I was having breakfast or something with Victoria a few years ago, and we talked about Romeo loving fashion and that we should do something together. He was an absolute dream to work with. Honestly, he is the sweetest. Genuinely. So well brought up. I’ve known Victoria and those guys for quite a long time; they are just lovely, grounded, gentle, well-mannered little kids. Romeo loves fashion, completely loves it."

Romeo's stylish parents have clearly influenced his fashion tastes. As well as his sporting success, David has made a lucrative career as a model.

Romeo has developed strong ideas about what garments he does and doesn't like already.

"He had a real opinion; he was so involved in what he was wearing," the designer continued. "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.”

Romeo will always have a firm place inside Christopher's "Burberry family". The fashion house frontman named model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne as another famous young face he's championing.

“Cara is über professional," he gushed. "She enjoys it. She has no airs and graces at all. She is very kind. No matter how high her star is in the sky, if she comes in here she is exactly the same with everyone she has always worked with. I feel very protective over her.”
