In light of shooting Burberry's latest campaign, we take a look back at the 17-year-old's many achievements...
Brooklyn Beckham, the eldest son of Victoria and David Beckham, is just seventeen – but he’s already done more with his life than we could hope to at double his age.
He’s tried his hand at football, worked it as a fashion model and recently shot Burberry’s latest campaign – all while still at school. In honour of Brooklyn’s burgeoning career in, well, everything, let’s take a look at some of his most recent ventures.
Brooklyn has just shot a series of photos for Burberry’s ‘This Is Brit’ fragrance in London, with Christopher Bailey himself saying: ‘Brooklyn has a really great eye for image and Instagram works brilliantly for him as a platform to showcase his work. His style and attitude were exactly what we wanted to capture in the spirit of this new Brit fragrance campaign and I am loving the shots of Saturday’s live shoot which looks incredible.’
These are a couple of the photos Brooklyn has shared on his Instagram page – and we have to say, they’re pretty good. Want to take home some of his work for yourself? You can pick up your favourite campaign picture from a selection of 36 posters from Burberry stores and fragrance counters.
Just like his dad, Brooklyn has a talent for football, and briefly played in Arsenal’s youth team. There have also been whispers of the oldest Beckham being signed up by David’s old club, Manchester United.
His younger brothers Romeo and Cruz are also talented footballers, and are both signed up to Arsenal’s Hale End academy.
Brooklyn’s mum started her career as an all-singing, all-dancing star – and her oldest son might be following in her footsteps. A good friend of British boyband The Vamps, Brooklyn starred in the video for their single Wake Up, showing off his parkour skills (jumping off the roof of a house, no less), as well as some serious acting abilities.
Mini Becks landed his first fashion campaign at just 15, as the really really ridiculously good looking face of Polish label Reserved, and has starred in plenty of modelling shoots thereafter, posing for a range of magazines. He’s also signed a modelling contract with a top agency, and reportedly wants to get into a Hollywood acting career in the future.
Now, we’re not sure if Brooklyn’s intentions are to become a full-time skateboarding pro, but from the amount of awesome boarding videos he puts on his Instagram, it’s clear he loves the hobby. Although this is Brooklyn – so we wouldn’t be surprised to see him as the face of an official skateboarding championship any moment now.
The Beckhams may be rich and famous, but they worked hard to get there – and they want to teach their son the same lesson. Last year, Brooklyn worked shifts at his neighbourhood coffee shop, earning £2.68 an hour. Imagine being served your morning latte by mini Becks?
