As much as we like to think we travel in style, we’re not convinced that our families look this chic before boarding a trans-Atlantic flight. Whether or not you believe that Victoria Beckham changes into trackie bottoms once she settles into her seat, these guys look outrageous cute en-famille. Watch out, Brangelina!
Firstly, there are the children. We’ve seen Harper’s wee ensembles a-plenty over the past few months, and she doesn’t disappoint in this little grey polka dot number with matching hairband. And then there are the boys. Romeo donned miniature versions of a trench coat, chukka boots and trilby, totally channelling an off-duty Brad Pitt, but tiny. And look at Cruz. The ill-buttoned trench, check shirt and high-tops all scream a (even tinier) version of Justin Bieber. Actually, Cruz is way more chic; the Beebs would have ruined it with a leather jacket. And finally, the eldest Beckham offspring, Brooklyn, stayed low key in a simple shirt, jeans, boots and backpack. After much debate here at Grazia HQ we’ve decided his doppelganger is Finn from Glee. Phew, that took us ages to figure out.
Now let’s move on to the Beckham parental unit. David looks dreamy. The side parting is so suave, the glasses are so fragrance advert, and the jumper is so cashmere. Dapper doesn’t even cover it. As a master of airport dressing, Victoria doesn’t disappoint in a wool kilt coat from her Autumn / Winter 2011 collection. Fancy getting your hands on it? Well, it's a mammoth £2,700. Gulp, that might be a bit steep pre-Christmas. She’s also carrying a beautiful soft Victoria tote, also from her own label, and obviously entirely insensible travelling shoes, the ultra-high Christian Louboutin Daffodil pumps.
Oh Beckham family, we don’t want to curse it but you really can’t do any wrong these days.
