Eighteen-year-old Romeo Beckham usually keeps himself out of the limelight as much as possible. But the young man just got all eyes to turn towards him with his latest feat. The handsome second child of Posh Spice and Britain’s football sensation has just made it to the cover of the universal fashion Bible – the Italian Vogue magazine. The teen icon’s debut on L’Uomo Vogue has drawn praise and compliments from several celebrities. However, no one is more proud of this feat than his parents, Victoria and David Beckham – both of whom have made it to the prestigious cover more than once.
Romeo is dressed from head to toe in Prada and looks the spitting image of his dad at eighteen. Except he sports a mop of blonde hair, just like his mum currently does. He is seen wearing a bright blue crop top and white vest. The entire shoot was conceptualized and done by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Former footballer David Beckham added his son’s photo from the shoot onto his own social media account along with the words: “So proud of you. What an incredible first cover.” The ever appreciative father had earlier put up an adorable montage admitting his son has now outgrown him in height.
The handsome teenager’s mother, former Spice Girl Victoria too posted the photo along with several others from the photo shoot on Instagram with the words: : “Proud of you @RomeoBeckham.” She also put up the video of her son modeling for his debut Vogue cover photoshoot.
Romeo himself put the photo up with the words: “Excited to share my first cover shoot for @luomovogue.”
Romeo’s older brother, Brooklyn, had made it big as a photographer at about the same age as Romeo. Currently at 21, Brooklyn is said to be considering a career in fashion as well. The Beckham boys are much sought after faces not only because of their famous parents but also because of their photogenic looks. However Romeo clearly packs the best of his parents chiseled featured as is highlighted by the photos for the shoot. He faces the camera with a smoldering look that is set to light several hearts on fire.
While Romeo’s latest feat has his parents beaming with pride, his older brother has reportedly already signed up Robert Ferrel as his manager. Ferrell has managed the careers of several high profile models including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer.
The fashion industry is anticipating some big work in the future by Brooklyn. He has the leading names building him up so he is likely to bag lucrative deals, feels inside sources. The industry believes it is only a matter of time before the young photographer makes a name for himself in front of the camera as well.
Apart from Brooklyn and Romeo, Victoria and David are also parents to 15-year-old Cruz and 7-year-old Harper. Will the younger two follow the footsteps of the older siblings? There is a fair chance yes.
