Romeo Beckham banned from British Vogue
David and Victoria Beckham's son Romeo, who appears in the new Burberry ad, will not feature in British Vogue magazine, as the 10-year-old does not meet its health-initiative criteria, it has been revealed.
Romeo's modelling debut won many column inches in the newspapers on Tuesday, but it has, apparently, failed to impress the editor of Vogue, Alexandra Shulman, the Telegraph reported.
She declares that her magazine will refuse to write about the 10-year-old son of David and Victoria Beckham.
"Romeo Beckham doesn't meet Vogue model health-initiative criteria of over-16s only," Shulman said.
"Under-16 model ban is in pages of our magazine," she said.
Her remarks are questioned by the model Edie Campbell, who appears in the Burberry advertisement alongside Romeo.
The 22-year-old Campbell questions why Shulman published an interview, and ran photographs, with Chloe Moretz, the 15-year-old American actress.
"What about features on, for example, Chloe Moretz?" Campbell asked.
Shulman responds that the interview with Moretz appeared before Vogue introduced its ban on under-16s.
"But child actors are probably in a different category," she said.
