Emporio Armani has released another wave of shots of former soccer superstar-turned-model David Beckham as part of Armani’s 2009 menswear campaign.

The print ads, which were shot in black and white, follow right behind a sizzling and tantalizing collection of photos that were recently released by Armani.

In the two chiaroscuro stills, a solemn but ripped Beckham is lying on a bed wearing nothing but gray briefs; the other photo displays the soccer player standing against a mirror with the same somber appearance. 

Note: only the first three images are part of this story.
