David Gandy

Sorry for the very late post I’ve been sick for past days. I still have the slight cold and cough though but feeling a little bit better now- well enough to come up with comprehensive sentences.

Here’s another hot model David Gandy. The only information I have about him was he’s one of the face of Dolce and Gabanna Summer 2007 campaign, the face of Carolina Herera's Aqua cologne, a constant face for the Gant catalog and Massimo Dutti campaign.





















Update:




I just decided to update this post a bit since I still see a lot of people visit this page. OK we all know now that David is bigger star model now afternoon that very sexy Dolce and Gabanna’s Blue ad. It takes a perfectly beautiful man to look amazing in a white Speedo.
Here is the unforgettable D&G Blue TV ad






Here are photos of David Gandy's new Zara Ad.


















Here a couples of article about him

SUNWOMAN: Meet the D&G Adonis By ERICA DAVIES

YOU might not know the face – but you’ll definitely recognise the package.

Sexy David Gandy is the object of lust to a whole nation of women thanks to a memorable appearance in a perfume advert wearing little more than a tiny pair of white pants.
The ad — for designer brand Dolce & Gabbana’s latest aftershave Light Blue — shows an extremely provocative close-up shot of David in the skimpy briefs as he gives the camera his best come-hither stare.
And despite looking every inch the Italian stallion in the saucy pics, the 6ft 2in hunk actually comes from Billericay in ESSEX.

David, 27, says: “People are always surprised when I speak. They can’t believe I am a born-and-bred Essex boy.
“Everyone asks me if there is Mediterranean in my blood — but my mum’s ancestors are Scottish and my dad is from East London.”
The marketing graduate says the reaction to the ad — where he floats on a dinghy in the sea wearing those soaking wet trunks and passionately kisses the female model lying beneath him — is “hugely flattering”.
He adds: “People tell me women are going crazy. But it’s not like I’ve got them screaming and running after me in the street.”
And great news, girls — the stud is SINGLE after splitting up with his model lover of three years.
He says: “Everyone’s looking for love but all the travelling I do means it’s difficult to have a stable relationship.
“At the moment work is my main interest but if the right lady came along . . .
“I like classically beautiful women — but she has to have a bad sense of humour to laugh at my jokes.”
As well as beauty, the man has brains too, saying Size Zero models do nothing for him.
He says: “I don’t like a very, very skinny girl. I find it quite off-putting and a little bit upsetting as they can’t be that healthy. I like my women to be womanly.”
David’s parents are both entrepreneurs who run a freight company and have been property developers in Florida for more than ten years. Referring to his BIG modelling break, he says he was embarrassed to show his parents because he didn’t think it was going to be such a large crotch shot.
He says: “Then the attention started to build and the ad was everywhere. My friends would text me saying, ‘David, are you sure your pictures big enough?’”
It certainly is.
And it doesn’t get any bigger than a 50ft version of the ad — shot by Princess Diana’s favourite photographer Mario Testino — which stops traffic in New York’s Times Square.
The bronzed Adonis has not always been a big noise in the fashion world.


After David graduated from the University Of Gloucestershire in 2001, his mates secretly entered him into a male model competition on Richard and Judy’s This Morning show.
And despite the self-confessed “petrol-head” getting his dream summer job at car mag Auto Express, David won and landed a contract with top agency Select Model Management. His first five years as a jobbing model were not entirely successful. There were endless castings for catwalk shows, and rejections, before his career took off last year.
He says: “At the shows you all get treated like s**t. “When I came into modelling my look — which is a classic ‘manly’ look — wasn’t in. Androgynous, thin guys were in.”
Last year, David really hit the big-time when Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana selected him to front their campaign for the new fragrance Light Blue Pour Homme.


Shot on location in a secluded cove on the coast of Capri last April, reserved English gent David had to have some serious coaching from photographer Mario Testino on how to be a Latin lover.
David says: “Mario said, ‘You need to kiss her — stop being so English and just get on with it’ — so I did.


“The model with me was lovely and we got on really well. (more here..)

THE INDEPENDENT SUNDAY: Advertising: The man in the white (bathing) suit

Who'd have thought the Adonis in Europe's most talked-about ad would come from deepest Essex? Simon Usborne tracks down D&G's hunk in trunks
Published: 09 July 2007
Unless your television has packed in and you've given up reading, you'll have seen this man before. And if his toned torso, slick hair and prominent "package" have stopped you in your tracks, you're not alone. Right now, Dolce & Gabbana's ad campaign is the talk of Britain's water coolers.
On gay news site Queerfeed, it's all too much for one fan: "Can't think... too awestruck... his face... we pass out from lack of oxygen." A YouTube slideshow tribute elicits a string of responses from flustered females. "He's the hottest man ever seen!!! He's just perfect," or: "Phwoar!!"


The multi-million pound campaign also marks Mario Testino's first shot at advertising, and follows in a grand tradition of iconic "hunk in trunk" adverts. But there's one question on everybody's lips: just who is this bronzed adonis? Raul from Rio? Marco from Milan? Leonardo from Lisbon?

Try Dave from Dagenham. Well, nearby Billericay, in fact. It turns out the "hottest man ever seen" is actually a 27-year-old Essex boy called David Gandy.
"People are usually a bit surprised when they hear where I'm from," says Gandy, whose Estuary accent has been thinned by years in Fulham, as well as New York, Milan and Tokyo. "My Dad's family is English and my Mum's is Scottish, but there's got to be a link to Spain or somewhere like that further down the line."
Gandy inherited his looks from his great-grandfather, but credits Richard and Judy with launching his modelling career. While studying multimedia marketing with management ("a complete waste of time") at the University of Gloucestershire, a friend "secretly" sent some photos to an ITV This Morning competition in 2001. He won first prize, a contract with London modelling agency Select, and has been there ever since.


Last year, Gandy really hit the big-time when Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana selected him to front their campaign for a new fragrance called Light Blue pour Homme.
"When you work on the creation of a fragrance you have in mind the ideal man you would want to be wearing it," says Dolce. "On an aspirational level, David's sun-kissed, Mediterranean look made him the ideal model."


Testino shot the poster and newspaper adverts last June. Cast and crew were put up in a five-star Naples hotel and ferried by speedboat to a secluded cove framed by the Faraglioni rock formations on Capri. In the TV spot, Gandy is seen draping himself over a beautiful brunette, but it's the thrusting still image of a lone Gandy that has caused a global sensation.
"I was embarrassed to show my parents, because I didn't think it was going to be such a large crotch shot," he says. "But when they saw it they loved it. Then it started to build and the ad was everywhere. My friends would text me saying 'David, are you sure your picture's big enough?' I definitely get noticed now more than before."


Gandy honed his physique on the playing fields of a Billericay comprehensive and now works out three times a week. But some still reckon his co-star – the pant-clad manhood – was in some way augmented. What does he say?

"Absolutely not!" And proof is out there: "The pants got a bit wet and went a bit see-through, so apparently they had to superimpose the white trunks over the top of the original photos."
Meanwhile, further evidence of Gandy's popularity can be found on social networking site Facebook. The David Gandy Appreciation Society, created last month, has 96 members; Gandy's own page is populated with fawning lovelies with names like Natalia Barbieri and Charlotte Olympia Dellal.

Another Update:

David Gandy in Vma's "The Making of Male Supermodel- David Gandy"

"Women don’t generally throw themselves at me, though that would be nice. I’ve been told by girlfriends that I look intimidating. Apparently that’s why women don’t approach me… I don’t have an ideal woman. I went out with someone for three years who I think is the most beautiful girl in the world, but I realized that beauty certainly isn’t everything. My ideals in a woman include someone who would love me for the way I am, faults and all. If she happened to look like Michelle Pfeiffer or Rachel McAdams, that would be kind of fab too. "

David used to live opposite my grandparents in Billericay when we were kids. My brother used to hang out with him, and I with his sister. I heard he had won a modeling compitition a few years back, but can't believe his success. We wish him the best of luck. He was always a good looking kid, I last saw him when he was about eighteen. I still can't believe he is the kid we used to play with!! JP.

ok i know all of you are saying that this guy is gorgeous. I have to go against the tides and say he used to be gorgeous but now I just cant stand him. I have seen him way to much and idk if it is true or not if he is Dominicos boy or not but he seems to be D&Gs bitch. I have seen this guy in everything D&G and i think they need to find a fresher face.

To all the female out there! it is about time we tel the male population we've had enough!! I say No More to men wearing skinny jeans, to MEN wearing pants that fall down there backsides, to stupid t-shirts with logos like' grab ya bag you've pulled! No more to immature, gropey, drunk men! And No More to those men who don't come under any of those catagories but think they are so fine when they pass mirrors they become TRANSFIXED at there own beauty!
If you've had your fill of these so called Men and don't wish to become gay then FIND the best picture of our David Gandy, print it off, have it blown up as big as you like and show them boys out there that we had it up to hairline! Chant ' This is a MAN! We are WOMAN and THIS is WHAT WE WANT!!!'
