He may be just eight years old but Romeo Beckham is already following in his father's footsteps when it comes to style. The England star's middle son figures in a list of Britain's best-dressed.
Other debutants on GQ magazine's best-dressed list include Prince William and Prince Harry while Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson, 20, topped the countdown, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Romeo, who is on 26th number, is described by experts as 'the celebrity of the future'. Beckhams' second son last year signed a deal for his own fashion label.
David Walker-Smith, menswear director at Selfridges, told GQ: "He's experimental, quirky and fun, and his style has nothing mini-me about it. It's me-me!"
Prince Harry, another new entry in the style rankings, beats his older brother by coming fifth, with experts crediting the fact he "looks good because he really doesn't care".
Prince William is also a new entry at 27, with US rapper Pharrell Williams endorsing the future king's style: "I like it when Prince William goes dandy. He's got all the proper wardrobe when they do the hunting thing. They kill that!"
Others in the best-dressed list are Matt Smith of Doctor Who (12th rank), with Little Britain star David Walliams at 11, David Beckham at 16 and Prime Minister David Cameron at 20.
Best-dressed winner Aaron Johnson, who last year fathered a baby girl with 43-year-old fiancee Sam Taylor-Wood, scooped the first place from last year's winner, Twilight heart-throb Robert Pattinson.
Elsewhere in the coveted annual list, X Factor host Dermot O'Leary, a new entry at 40, beats his boss Simon Cowell, who ranks at 43.
The top 50 also includes racing driver Jenson Button (9), British rapper Tinie Tempah (15), Sir Elton John (21), Ray Winstone (28), Jude Law (29), music producer Mark Ronson (34), Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch at 41 and artist David Hockney at 47.
GQ said: "Our list goes right down to a frighteningly tuned-in (and well-connected) eight-year-old, taking in anyone from actors, aristocrats and hip-hop artists to fashion designers and Formula One drivers along the way."
