London Mayor Boris Johnson Is Elle UK’s New Cover Boy

By: Lily Q / September 2, 2009

Elle UK’s annual London issue is an homage to all things British, featuring the likes of Burberry’s Christopher Bailey as a guest editor, Brit songstress Lily Allen on the cover (watch a behind-the-scenes video of her shoot here) and … tousled London Mayor Boris Johnson (yes, BJ for short) on a special edition cover? Johnson wrote the fashion mag’s editor’s letter and can be found, arms crossed over his chest, semi-scowling from the center of certain copies of the issue. Cute and cheeky or misguided and silly?
