David Beckham’s mini-me Romeo Beckham features in the holiday campaign for British luxury brand Burberry. The teen was a splitting image of his famous dad in the new festive campaign of the brand, a little too early for Christmas. David and Victoria Beckham’s 13-year-old son leads an all-British cast of actors, musicians and models in the quintessentially British festive ad campaign.
The line-up includes Michelle Dockery, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Naomi Campbell, Sir Elton John, James Corden, Julie Walters, Naomi Campbell, James Bay, George Ezra and Toby Huntington-Whiteley. Romeo kicked off his modeling career with a summer campaign for Burberry in 2013. He is now lending his star power to the luxury British brand’s Christmas campaign.

This is the second consecutive year that Romeo has starred in the Burberry Christmas campaign. The chief creative and executive officer of Burberry Christopher Bailey and his team paid a tribute to the classic film “Billy Elliot.” It has been built on last year’s dance-filled “From London with Love” holiday film.
Burberry is celebrating its 15 years through the cult film “Billy Elliot” through their ad campaign. “It was also a huge privilege to work with such amazing and iconic British talent—the cast are quite simply some of the biggest names in film, music and fashion and it was so much fun working with them all to make this special film,” Bailey said via press release.
The Burberry campaign includes both print elements and a proper campaign video. It premiered at the brand’s global flagship store in London, during an event hosted by Bailey and Elton John Tuesday.
At the premiere, Romeo looked dapper in a Burberry scarf and a suit and trouser combo, which he paired with a black tie. He was accompanied by his stylish mom Victoria and younger brother Cruz.

Elton John has penned the lyrics for “Billy Elliot the Musical.” He appears center stage in the ads wrapped in a festive red plaid scarf with his name written on it. The campaign images have been shot by none other than famous fashion photographer Mario Testino.
Meanwhile, Romeo was pictured outside the Los Angeles airport with his younger brother Cruz (10) and mom Victoria. The teen wore the much-coveted and now sold-out Yeezy duck boots, Vogue reported. His outfit consisted of a black leather biker jacket, white oversize T-shirt, motocross-inspired trousers and navy fedora hat.
