Romeo, Romeo, what art thou wearing, Romeo?

GQ Magazine wrote a sycophantic little piece about the Beckham kids being style icons. In an unusual piece of fawning, The Independent picked it up and ran with it:

… prompting this:

Sirs,

So, eight year-old Romeo Beckham is stylish according to GQ magazine. How on Earth did they work that out? The poor kid has all the hallmarks of his father – someone dressed by Posh Spice, a woman notoriously bereft of any sense of class or style. The last stylish thing I saw David wearing was a pair of Calvin’s and nothing else. Everything before or since has made him look like a young girl’s dressing-up toy, including the photo in today’s edition. Sadly, this seems to have been passed down the generations now. Romeo Beckham deserves our sympathy, not our attention.
