The British superstar David Beckham did something no other man has ever done before. And no it isn’t being ridiculously good looking in a suit, soccer uniform or without much on, but he does do that so well.
The LA Galaxy midfielder graces the cover of ELLE magazine‘s July issue shirtless emerging from a pool in drenched jeans. But the history is not in the clothes he is or isn’t wearing or the pose, it’s in the man himself.
Becks is the first man to appear alone on the cover of the magazine.
“David Beckham is a national hero,” ELLE Editor in Chief Lorraine Candy said. “He is an icon and Elle is known for featuring icons on its cover. This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike.”
There are more photos a little more enticing inside the July issue, which hits news stands Wednesday May 30th.
We’ll let Candy sum up our thoughts on Beckham’s history making cover, “Who doesn’t want to see a picture of one of the world’s most handsome men on the front cover of a magazine? It will be a collector’s issue.”
