Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In what feels suspiciously like the fashion world's answer to the Sport's Illustrated Swim Suit Edition, Elle UK has announced that for the first time ever, they will be featuring a solo dude on the cover of the magazine—the July issue to be exact. They're not saying who yet (that would ruin the surprise!) but you can whet your man-candy appetite with this hint from Editor-in-Chief Lorraine Candy: "He's iconic, he's handsome and we love him." Very well, then. A gallery of possible contenders on includes some predictable choices (George Clooney, Ryan Gosling) and some, er, less predictable choices (David Cameron, Mark Zuckerberg). If you'd like to prevent that from happening, the magazine is inviting you to tweet at @ELLEuk and share your vote.
