Supermodel and Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model  judge Tyson Beckford gets nearly naked for the July cover of British Cosmopolitan.  Beckford is posing bare-chested and half out of his jeans for the magazine’s legendary Centrefold page that is being used to raise awareness for Cancer Research UK. For Beckford, it’s photo shoots like this that makes him work even harder to maintain his killer physique.

The 42-year-old model, who has appeared in numerous films and music videos over the years, says that he thoroughly enjoyed the session that was photographed by famed photographer Antonio Petronzio. “I think this is probably the coolest thing I’ve done for a women’s magazine, by far,” Beckford says.
