David Beckham Covers ELLE UK July 2012

What a nice way to kick start the week, right? David Beckham covers the July 2012 issue of ELLE UK, in preparation for the London Olympics. Becks is the first man to cover the magazine, so this is just another fashion achievement he can add to his growing list.

ELLE UK’s editor, Lorraine Candy, revealed, “Ever since we announced we were featuring David Beckham in our July issue — the first man ever to appear on the Elle cover in its 27-year history — I’ve been bombarded, accosted and courted by women from all areas of my life.”

The issue hits newsstands on Wednesday, and there’s a teaser trailer online now, if you simply can’t wait. The subscribers cover hasn’t appeared yet, but I believe it’s a topless shot.

Do you like David Beckham’s ELLE UK cover? Will you buy the July issue? And would you like to see more male stars cover ELLE?

UPDATE: The topless subscriber cover has also been released. See it after the jump…
