David Beckham to Grace Cover of UK Elle

David Beckham is a sexy soccer superstar, so it makes sense that the British Elle is putting him on its Olympics issue, due out May 30. According to the Daily Mail, the cover marks the first time a man has appeared on the front of British Elle by himself, and Beckham’s first appearance on a women’s magazine.

Lorraine Candy, Editor-in-Chief of the title, said Beckham was a perfect choice. “He is an icon and Elle is known for featuring icons on its cover,” Candy told the Daily Mail. “This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike. Anyway, 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.”

Calling it a collector’s issue is a bit of a stretch. Hasn’t everyone seen Beckham half naked by now? We’ll tell you what would make it a keepsake: If Beckham finally dished on what he really thinks about “Spice World.”
