Not many 15 year olds can say they’ve made it onto the cover of a high fashion magazine for their modelling debut, but then again not many 15 year olds have a pop star mother and a football legend as their father.
Brooklyn is the latest Beckham to get in front of the camera, and he definitely did not dissapoint, with his boy band good looks and an almost moody demeanour, which only the most experienced models manage to capture. But Brooklyn isn’t the first of the Beckham brothers to enter the world of modelling, it seems the handsome sons have got the modelling bug, after younger son Romeo landed himself as the face of Burberry’s 2012 campaign.
The pictures were shot by photographer and friend of the familiy Alasdair McLellan, who also worked with David back in 2011 for his Fantastic Man shoot. Brooklyn appears on the cover of biannual high end men’s magazine Man About Town, with a full feature inside picturing him in brands such as Ralph Lauren, Saint Laurent and Supreme. The shoot itself channels a modern East London boy look with undertones of 1950’s Hollywood cool, and Brooklyn is every bit his dad’s son, but that pout is undeniably his mothers.
Man About Town Editor-in-Chief Bean Reardon was more than pleased to have Brooklyn on board, giving him a impressive 20 page spread in the Spring/Summer edition of the magazine. The theme of the shoot is centred around the pivotal time in a young man’s life when fashion becomes a means of expression, the styling was carefully selected to convey a sense of a young man coming into his own.
Both David and Victoria have expressed their delight and admiration for their sons modelling debut, and are said to be very proud parents, with everyone set commenting on Brooklyn’s professionalism and involvement – Including the editor himself who when asked about working with Brooklyn said
“We could not have wished for a stronger subject than Brooklyn to bring this story to life. He was a diligent, relaxed cover star for his first ever fashion shoot.”
Brooklyn is clearly a multi talented boy, with trials for football clubs Chelsea and Manchester United in the pipeline as well as his latest modelling endeavour, which we’re sure will have designers everywhere scrambling to book him. So its appears we have another football superstar/top model in the Beckham family, we definitely hope so!
