Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Romeo Beckham appear in Burberry?s new Christmas campaign, which celebrates the 15th anniversary of Billy Elliott, and 28-year-old Rosie recalls how sweet 13-year-old Romeo was when he met her.
?Romeo came up to me and tapped me on the shoulder, and he goes, ?Are you the Burberry model???
Fellow Burberry co-star and supermodel Naomi Campbell giggled as RoRo continued: ?I think it was just after he did his first campaign, he stood and asked me loads of questions. They?re really polite kids,? reported Now Magazine.
Rosie first met the mini-Beckham on a plane journey and said that ?they were all impeccably mannered and really really sweet.?
Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1, it seems that Romeo didn?t pass up the opportunity of speaking to a supermodel and get a few tips and trick of the trade: ?He was asking me all these questions and getting my tips on modeling. I felt very important!?
Rosie?s tips obviously paid off as thirteen-year-old Romeo is yet again one of the main stars of the iconic British brand?s three-minute festive film, and he celebrated his achievement with his mum, Victoria Beckham, and ten-year-old brother, Cruz, at a swanky party at the flagship Regent Street store last night, according to a report by Yahoo.
According to Express, speaking about her chance meeting with Romeo, Rosie also told BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw that she was left feeling “very important” afterwards.
She said, “He was asking me all these questions and getting my tips on modelling, and then Brooklyn wanted a photograph with me.
“I felt very important! They’re lovely kids and David and Victoria too,” she went on, before joking that his demands were “out of control.”
