David Beckham: First Man on ELLE Cover
David Beckham is to become the first man to grace the cover of ‘ELLE’ magazine solo. One small step for man, one giant leap to the newsstands to pick this baby up.

The soccer star is to be on the face of the July issue of the magazine, which will be dedicated to the London Olympic games. David said he was “honored” with the privilege.

"ELLE is a prestigious magazine with international recognition,” David said. “I'm honored to be asked to be the first ever solo male fashion cover."

Sure, other dudes have been on ‘ELLE’s front page before, but only in the company of other women. For example, Liam Gallagher posed with wife Nicole Appleton in the January 2001 edition, and Kate Moss posed with Paul Weller back in February 1997.

Men, if this seems sexist, take solace in the fact that you guys still make more money than us.

Editor-in-Chief Lorraine Candy said: "David Beckham is a national hero, so we saw an opportunity to shoot a celebratory cover to support an historical and patriotic year.”

Uh huh. So is he going to be in his underwear, or what?

"He is an icon and ELLE is known for featuring icons on its cover,” Candy continued. “This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike.”

She goes on to call Beckham “one of the world’s most handsome men.” “It will be a collector’s issue," Candy said.
