First off, we will not rest until we are on the cover of FANTASTIC MAN. We want our picture, with the words FANTASTIC MAN floating above us, with the “A” in MAN crossed out and an “E” scrawled above it. It’s a life goal now. Everything we do from this point on will be to work toward that goal of being on the cover of FANTASTIC MAN.
Now, about the current FANTASTIC MAN…
We’ll say this: he doesn’t really “do it” for us in a pants-moving kind of way, but he’s an extremely good-looking and stylish man who wears clothes really, really well. So well, that we can’t recall an outfit ever looking bad on him. What’s somewhat surprising is how flat and uninvolved he seems to be as a model. Now, you could argue “Oh, he’s a straight man and a footballer and blahblahblah.” Zip it. He’s a classic dandy one of the most stylish men in the world and he’s married to one of the most stylish women in the world. In fact, the Beckhams wouldn’t be so world famous if they were just a footballer and former pop star. It’s their style that makes them international stars. And it’s funny, because Vicki Beckham can pose like her life depended on it. You’d think she’d have given him some pointers before she shoved him out the door.
