British fashion rag Arena released its annual Power list in the December issue, naming David Beckham Britain’s most powerful man 40 years old or younger.
“Beckham has topped this year’s [list] because he is arguably the most recognisable Brit on the planet,” says editor Giles Hattersley. “David is our biggest sporting export and has inspired boys of all ages to become passionate about football — and fashion.”
The youngest lad on the list is Scottish tennis player Andy Murray (39th). Now I would throw some money at a magazine that put Andy (concave chest and all) in shots like that. Wouldn’t you?
Others on the list are Prince Harry (fifth), actor Daniel Craig (10th), DJ Mark Ronson (18th), and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen (25th).
Photographer Steven Klein continues his hot and torrid love affair with Beckham by shooting this layout. Klein was also behind Beckham’s sexy shoot in W with wife Victoria.
