This week I would like you to present David Gandy, probably the most famous face for D&G. In Italy he was all above the magazine and in street ad with his skimpy white swimsuit and on the background one of our most beautiful seaside places, i Faraglioni, to promote D&G perfume. Later on David Gandy was again the "face" of Dolce&Gabbana's newest underwear collection and was featured in their 2008 calendar by Mariano Vivanco. The calendar was available only for selected customers, so now, it's my pleasure to show you this treasure:
David Gandy (Billericay, February 18, 1980) is a british model. David 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 (Judy)’s ancestors are Scottish and my dad (Robert) is from East London.”
After David graduating from the University Of Gloucestershire in 2001 in Marketing, his mates secretly entered him into a male model competition. He began to modelling in 2001 for Public Image Worldwide agency, then he signed with London agency Select, and in few years he reached the supermodel status knowing internationally as testimonial for Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue perfume and he appears in the ad commercial for D&G underwear.
He appears also in ad commercial for Stefanel, Carolina Herrera, Ermenegildo Zegna and he is the face for the Fall/Winter 2008-2009 for Massimo Dutti. He shot with Mario Testino for Vogue, where he was Superman. In February 2009 he was special guest during Italian music contest Sanremo.
“People tell me women are going crazy. But it’s not like I’ve got them screaming and running after me in the street.” David is single after splitting up with his model lover of three years. “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. 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.”
