David Beckham Turns Up the Wet Shirtless Sex Appeal as Elle UK's First Male Cover Model: PHOTOS


Photographer Doug Inglish channeled Daniel Craig's famous Bond beach photoshoot for David Beckham's debut as Elle UK's first male cover model.

Said ELLE Editor in Chief Lorraine Candy: "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. 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?"


An alternative cover, and the Beckham shot, unblemished by text, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Handsome guy but isn't the eyebrow thing he does a bit much?

  3. What do David Beckham and the Tanning Mom have in common? They both hated the white skin they were born with apparently.

    Nothing says "sexy" like lizard arms. Yuch.

  4. Meh.

    To each, his own.

    I'll take Ben Cohen.

  5. Those tattoos are SO unfortunate.

  6. Ha! @Terry this guy is covered in tatoos as if he's been in prison for the last 20 years and you ask if his eyebrows are a bit much? Sorry, that just struck me as very funny.

  7. Simply no appeal to me. Weird.

  8. Water appears to have been really cold...

  10. All the tattoos. Yuck.

  11. I do wish Towleroad would stop posting pics of Beckham (and others with tattoos). It seems to bring out all the haters ... so much for inclusiveness in our community. "To each his own" as long as it's something I like. :-)

  12. Zero interest. And just as an aside, his H&M underwear is crappy. (no pun intended)

  13. Yea, not seeing the appeal here. I think he looks kind trailer trash skanky, but then I suppose some people like that look. Not me.

  14. Yep agree with ANON on Ben Cohen. Now there's a man! And if you get a moment google Danny Care. Yummmmmmmmmmo.

  15. hmmmm...eyebrows are ok, tats not so much, Ben gives me a hardon, I will google Danny and swimming does that to all of us, at least David starts with more than the average guy. :) Happy Holiday!

  16. Wow, the tattoos seem like a creepy skin disease that is spreading towards his chest. But as long as his ass is clear, I would do him.

  17. You can bend it like Beckham, but for my money it is Cristiano Ronaldo all the way.

  18. He's a relic with those tattoos. He's yesterday's news. Let's get some new beef on the cover,

    Posted by: Jason | May 28, 2012 4:57:11 PM

  19. He was really fine a few years back, now he's looking a bit anorexic.

    Posted by: RobWest | May 28, 2012 5:32:16 PM

  20. Once upon a time he was a good looking guy but marriage to that fame whore must have drained him- he looks scary and freaky- now Mr Ben Cohen that is one solid piece of prime male beauty

  21. Part of the tattoo hate comes from people who got tattoos years ago and who have spent a lot of money trying to get them removed.

  23. He is sexy - but that is really photoshopped

    Posted by: Marky | May 28, 2012 9:02:16 PM

  24. Definitively still got it and I would give him a couple of thrusts for the old times, but he's not aging well. Blonds never do; too delicate thin skin. The tattoos, oh my gosh! those marks never age well either.

  25. Eeesh -- looks like some scary guy hanging out by the dumpster that parents warn their kids to stay the hell away from.
