It’s true: David Beckham is the first male to appear solo on the magazine’s cover in its illustrious, 26-year history. Since its creation, Elle has been famous for its roster of fabulous female celebrities and models, as well as for the occasional male/female pairing (like this one, for instance); but never once has it had a man—and ONLY a man—grace its cover.

Until now. To celebrate the arrival of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Elle UK decided to break with tradition. “David Beckham is a national hero,” the magazine’s Editor in Chief, Lorraine Candy, said. “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.” The saying really is true: Women want him, men want to be him.

“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?,” Lorraine continued. And she is absolutely right! This is why we’d like to help you get your Wednesday off to a terrific start by presenting you with these lovely images of this lovely man.

Happy Wednesday!
