8-Year-Old Romeo Beckham To Design Sunglasses

We’re not sure how much of this we believe, but according to the UK’s Daily Mirror Romeo Beckham (he of David and Victoria Beckham gene possession) just inked a deal to design sunglasses. Says the Mirror’s “source”:

Romeo has a real eye for fashion. He has strong opinions on what works and what doesn’t, and has been badgering David and Victoria for months about designing his own sunglasses. It is no passing whim – Victoria said she’d only back the project if he was certain he wanted to do it. There is a gap in the market for designer kids’ shades that are 100% UV protected and trendy. The glasses are made especially for children and will have a cool ‘RB’ motif on one arm. The range was originally going to be called Bambino Beckham. Both Victoria and David are delighted.

What seems even more implausible is the fact that Suri Cruise and Heidi Klum‘s daughter Leni are rumored to be involved in “showcas[ing] the snazzy frames.”

We took it upon ourselves to gauge Romeo’s style, which you can see in our slideshow below. Though we found him rocking some ridiculous shades (Michael Jackson!), we have surmised that he prefers tees, sneakers and the occasional hat. So, he’s basically like every other 8-year-old boy we know.
