The Beckham family have a new fashion star among them.

Romeo Beckham, the second eldest son of David and Victoria Beckham, is the centre of Burberry's Christmas campaign which was unveiled at a star-studded launch event in London last night.

Titled 'From London with Love', the Hollywood musical-inspired short film, which is over four minutes long, sees the 12-year-old displaying his modelling skills and dancing cartwheels alongside 50 other dancers.

He plays a young a boy delivering the gift of love captured in a gold box to a young couple, played by model and dancers Hannah Dodds and Anders Hayward.

It is the second time Romeo has modelled for Burberry since he was named a face of the fashion house in December 2012, having starred in two campaigns for spring/summer 2013 with models Charlie France and Edie Campbell.

David Beckham has said Romeo is "the fashion one" amongst his children. "We used to try to dress them up, but now they want to wear their own things...so [Romeo will] go for skinny jeans and a vintage T-shirt and funny hats. One Christmas he asked for a pair of Spats shoes," said ex-footballer two years ago.

Meanwhile, older brother Brooklyn is the face of edgier fashion. The 15-year-old followed his modelling debut in biannual men's magazine Man About Town with a seaside-inspired fashion shoot in The New York TimesT magazine this week.

It's no surprise the Beckham children are dipping into the fashion world, where mother Victoria, 40, runs her successful eponymous fashion label and David, 39, has modelled in numerous fashion campaigns himself. Last month, Victoria was named UK's most successful entrepreneur having transformed her image from ex-Spice Girl to respected fashion designer. Her fashion brand's turnover has increased by 2,900% - from £1million to £30million in five years - and her staff has increased from just three to over 100.
