ELLE UK is one of the most highly recognizable fashion magazines in both the UK and the US. They've had celebrities, models, athletes and everyone in between appear on their cover. But until now, only women have graced that front spot.
Well, David Beckham is ELLE UK's first cover boy and he's made the issue one of the most talked about in years!
The cover features a very cool picture of the 37-year-old soccer stud showing off his fully tattooed arms and well-coiffed hair while wearing a simple short sleeved grey sweatshirt by Louis Vuitton.
The inside photograph may cause a few more waves, as a topless David emerges from a pool, much like the famed image of Daniel Craig on the beach as James Bond in Casino Royale. Wearing nothing but a soaked pair of Dior Homme jeans and a rippling pack of abs, the image is sure to be a fan favorite.
Inside the magazine, David spoke about fame:
I never thought about the money, the fame. It never interested me, and it doesn't interest me now. None of that has ever excited me. . . .
He also spoke on fatherhood with his new baby girl Harper:
It's great. I love to bite her legs, or shoulders. It's how a baby should be. She's so beautiful.
And when it comes to his beautiful wife Victoria, David said:
She comes home and shows me what she's been doing all day and what exciting dresses and bags she's got coming through. And then I say something boring like 'I got kicked today.'
We can't wait to read the entire article and see the rest of the pictures from the spread when the magazine is released on May 30th. In the meantime, you can check out the pictures in our gallery!
