The Burberry Spring/Summer 2013 Campaign Starring Romeo Beckham

From the previous post!



OH Romeo...

Romeo Beckham Is The Star Of Burberry's Spring 2013 Campaign: WATCH The Video

Don't you think he's cute hey? Well...He is the son of David and Victoria Beckham.   I honestly want to steal this little cutie pie and HIS dad David Beckham. Just recently Romeo Beckham was announced as the face of the kids' selection for Burberry for the Spring Summer 2013 collection and Romeo is only 10 years old! Not too bad for a 10 year old. With his adorable smile and his glee, who wouldn't fall for him. This calls for a Burberry store in South Africa soon.

I honestly fell in love with Ms Shirley here and her amazing blog. I feel so utterly inspired. This is just one of her looks that I immediately added to one of my favorite looks right now.... I'm madly in love with colors such as beige, black and any other monochromatic hue that is romantic yet so sophisticated. AND the cheetah print boots are such a killer on its own... with a touch of red lipstick adds so much of allure.
