Christopher Bailey has praised Romeo Beckham's ''impeccable'' taste.

Burberry's chief creative officer was extremely impressed with the 10-year-old star when he made his modelling debut for the British brand's spring/summer 2013 ad campaign, and couldn't believe how professional the budding fashion model was.

He enthused: ''Romeo loves fashion, completely loves it. He had a real opinion; he was so involved in what he was wearing.

''And he was so well-mannered and humble - he would never say, 'I don't like this', but he would say, 'Hmm, maybe something else'. He has impeccable taste.''

It was a risk using such a young model on the shoot - which also starred British beauties Cara Delevingne and Edie Campbell - but Christopher believes Romeo is a credit to his parents David and Victoria Beckham's and made the experience a ''dream''.

The fashion mogul added in an interview with The Sunday Times newspaper: ''He was an absolute dream to work with. Honestly, he is the sweetest - genuinely, so well brought up.

''I've known Victoria and those guys for quite a long time; they are just lovely, grounded, gentle, well-mannered little kids.''

Christopher also shared some kind words about It-girl of the moment, Cara.

He added: ''Cara is uber professional. She enjoys it. She has no airs and graces at all, and she is very kind.''
