The genetically perfect offspring of David and Victoria Beckham is fast becoming a tiny fashion icon. (Nooo!) First he modeled for a freaking Burberry campaign, and now he is coming for Karl Lagerfeld of all people, because it’s important to aim high.
In an image Posh tweeted earlier today (the origin of which is currently unknown), 10-year-old Romeo Beckham appears outfitted with the signature hair, glasses, outfit, and maniacal grin of the famed Chanel designer. It is ominously captioned “ROMEO WHO?” as if the child in question is in fact the freaky love child of Victoria and the Kaiser. “I can’t stop laughing right now, genius! x” Posh said of it, an interesting choice, seeing as it implies she cheated on her husband with a 77-year-old fashionista whose primary sexual interest is his cat. Which, come to think of it, is actually pretty funny.
But if I’m still not laughing, it’s most likely because I consider this an accurate snapshot of what the future holds for young Romeo. Will he, as the photo suggests, murder Karl Lagerfeld and steal his clothing, accessories, crazyface, and ultimately, his job? What lengths will Karl go to to defend his turf? And perhaps most importantly, will Victoria Beckham succeed in running Chanel as a puppet empire or will the boy-king wrest control from her like a more stylish version of Joffrey Baratheon? All signs thus far point to “probably.”
