David Beckham is the first solo male to grace the cover of Elle U.K.’s for the July’s issue of the publication, in anticipation of the 2012 Olympic games. The cover features a shirtless and wet Beckham shot by Doug Inglish. Here’s what ELLE Editor in Chief Lorraine Candy had to say about the cover, ‘David Beckham is a national hero… 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.’
How do you feel about it?
