    Emma Watson has rocked Burberry's ad campaigns with her impeccably chic Brit-girl look, and this season, Burberry has even recruited her baby bro, Alex, to co-star in the 2010 campaign.

    A fitting muse for Burberry's cutting-edge classic aesthetic, Watson has parlayed her status as an actor to become a power player in the fashion world as well.  Burberry Creative Director Christopher Bailey decided to hire both siblings for the next season's ad campaign after becoming enchanted with their brother-sister repertoire.  Alex Watson shares his sister's pretty face and brooding, sprightly features.

    Other illustrious Brit kids in the Mario Testino-shot spread include George Craig and Matt Gilmour, the son of Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, and Max Hurd, a grandson of Douglas Hurd, Britain’s foreign secretary under British Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher and John Major.
