Okay, so my knowledge of fashion is limited mainly to soccer jerseys, soccer t-shirts, band t-shirts, and blue jeans, but even I know that Elle is Kind Of A Big Deal when it comes to fashion. And being a soccer writer, I definitely know that David Beckham is Kind Of A Big Deal when it comes to, well, just about everything. 

With the European Championships and the London Olympics dominating event calendars this summer, the already sport-obsessed UK (seriously, they televise darts over there) has gone into sporting overdrive. Elle is jumping on that by securing Britain’s most iconic sportsman (sorry, Steve Redgrave and C.B. Fry) for its July Cover. According to Elle UK’s Editor-in-Chief Lorraine Candy:

“David Beckham is a national hero, so we saw an opportunity to shoot a celebratory cover to support a historical and patriotic year. 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.”
