David Gandy gives fashion advice to drivers

David Gandy has advised men against wearing driving goggles.
 
The supermodel has given his top tips on how to look hot behind the wheel of a sports car. According to David, the main thing is to think about is your driving attire.

“If you insist on driving a supercar around town, don’t wear aviators while doing it. You won’t look like Maverick or Goose [from Top Gun] but there will be a few four-letter ‘call signs’ people will give you,” he told GQ.

David then admitted there are certain times when wearing goggles might be acceptable. They are extra special circumstances though, which he has clearly outlined.

“You are only allowed to wear driving gloves, goggles or a shearling aviator jacket if: 1. You are flying a Spitfire. 2. You are driving any type of Morgan or pre-Seventies classic car. 3. You are Paul Newman or James Dean. 4. You are Alan Partridge,” he laughed.

“Never ever, under any circumstances, put cushions on your back seat! Not even if [designer] Terence Conran tells you it’s OK.”

David Gandy for 'Apollo Novo' Magazine


Apollo Cover
David Gandy covers the new issue of french magazine 'Apollo Novo' (Spring 2012)









To read the original french interview, please go to Apollonovo.com. In other case, here you are the translation into an english language in exclusive for DjG.com

During the past ten years, David Gandy has been the image of campaigns from the leading fashion brands and cosmetics. We have a meeting with the model who is now embarking on the daunting task of branding himself.  It took place mid-March in Paris, for an exclusive shoot for Apollo Novo Magazine. When he arrived, David Gandy occupied the space like the  star of his profession he truly is. His steel blue eyes are  impressive and glossy. He knows what he wants and especially what he does not want.

Q: What aspect of your profession do you like most?

David Gandy: Thanks to my work, I have to travel a lot and I love it. I live in London. However, I am a nomad, my whole life is wrapped in a bag. I fly to the United States one day, work in Milan the next day and fly again to be in a show this weekend in Paris.  This is the life to which  I' ve grown  accustomed. The day I don't have to pack my bags to put down roots, will be the day I would start to feel panic. Returning home is a job also: when you leave a place after a long stay, the day you return, many things have changed, your friends, your family, there is always something new and exciting. With London in particular, I love coming back because I love London--after all, it's my home.

Q: Can you say what would make you decide to unpack your bags in earnest?

David Gandy: One day, I will have had enough. One day I will simply say: "it's over" but that day has not arrived yet. I have so many projects in my heart. I have a passion for interior design and I have decorated the homes of some of my friends. When I decide to unpack my bags for good, I will buy a house and re-do it inside out. It's a passion, an obsession that will require a lot of time and energy. I won't be able to  travel as much when I undertake such a project, but until that day comes, I take the opportunity to travel as much as possible.

Q: Is there an ultimate project for your career you would like to complete this year?

David Gandy: I have many plans, ambitions, however I do not want to talk about them because I prefer to surprise rather than disappoint. So I will depend on the element of surprise.

David Gandy: el hombre Dolce & Gabbana


DG D& G Esquire Lat May 2012

El rostro de Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue nos enseña que la seducción comienza en el olfato
Por: Pierina Fer 


La seducción comienza en el olfato, o al menos esto nos enseñaron Domenico Dolce y Stefano Gabbana cuando lanzaron al mercado Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. Con su adictivo, fresco, envolvente e irresistible aroma, esta fragancia celebra diez años de vida con la presentación de una campaña protagonizada por David Gandy, uno de los hombres más cotizados del momento. El modelo fue fotografiado en las aguas del Mediterráneo por Mario Testino, quien nos introduce en el estilo de vida de Dolce & Gabbana en la Riviera italiana.

Con 13 premios internacionales, D&G Light Blue se ha convertido en un clásico. "Estamos muy orgullosos del legado de esta fragancia, que captura la sensualidad del Mediterráneo, un lugar perfecto para la seducción", comentaron los diseñadores. Viajamos a Río de Janeiro para la fiesta de aniversario, donde entrevistamos a David Gandy.


ESQ: ¿Qué te gusta de Light Blue?
DG: Que es fresca y ligera... ¡me encanta! No me gustan las que se sienten muy pesadas.

ESQ: ¿Cuál es el momento perfecto para usar esta fragancia?

DG: Me gusta en la primavera y el verano, me remite al Mediterráneo y su magnífico sol.

ESQ: ¿Cuéntame sobre la campaña?
DG: Fue simplemente asombrosa. Soy muy afortunado, imagínate: Italia con una luz maravillosa, una modelo bellísima a la que además tenía que seducir, y un fotógrafo fantástico como Mario Testino.

ESQ: ¿Cómo seduces a una mujer?
DG: Debes ser sincero y no mentir para conquistar. También tienes que estar serio pero no en exceso, algunos chistes ayudan. Y queda prohibido hablar, hablar y hablar.

ESQ: ¿Cuáles son tus accesorios y prendas favoritas?

DG: Tengo serios problemas con los relojes, y más por sus precios. Me encantan los trajes, podría vestirme con ellos todos los días de mi vida. Tengo tres trajes bespoke, a final de cuentas soy inglés y la sastrería está en mi sangre. Los trajes Dolce & Gabbana son asombrosos pues tienen un fit perfecto, no se les tiene que hacer nada; tengo como 50.

ESQ: ¿Cómo prefieres los trajes?
DG: La moda de hombre es muy limitada en comparación con la de las mujeres. Ellas tienen múltiples accesorios, nosotros debemos variar nuestros trajes para vernos diferentes y propositivos. Tengo trajes de un botón, dos botones, tres piezas y cruzados; estos últimos son mis favoritos, porque son muy antiguos y te hacen lucir elegante y con estilo.

David Gandy: MODELS.com's Icon Man

David Gandy is among the Top Ten Icons Men of the worldwide recognized web, MODELS.com. Sharing this honour with models like Larry Scott, Gabriel Aubry, Alex Lundqvist or Mark Vanderloo.

The VIP club: those working "icons" of the moment - defined as male models with public recognition, established longevity and major campaigns and/or editorials within the last year.
Many male models come and go but these 10 forces have proven themselves to be client powerhouses via their fragrance campaigns, their blue chip advertising work and their continued editorial presence (the key variables on which this ranking is based). Some of these men, over the life of their career, have earned over a million dollars. Others have left behind unforgettable and moving imagery that proves that presence, passion and charisma counts in male modeling. Most importantly their existence and survival is a testament to where brilliant management can take a career. All hail the iconic male model.

6
Inevitable was Mr Gandy's place on MDC's top icons list. In a scant few years, there may be no other man who's made an impression like him in the public's consciousness. As the only male model to front a solo Details cover in recent memory, as the ongoing face of Dolce & Gabbana's multiple lines, a Youtube channel, videos, a column for British Vogue and more, the juggernaut effect of brand Gandy is seemingly unstoppable.

David Gandy - '+Gente' Clip

Gente TV1 08052012
During the last days, the 'Light Blue' advertising by D&G airs in a lot of channels worldwide. Among all the news in magazines and clips featuring David Gandy, I would like to emphasize this one which was aired on TV1 Channel in Spain on May 08, 2012 as part of the program: '+ Gente'. The main reason is that it has new pictures from the report aired by the same channel within the 'Corazón, corazón' program on May 25, 2008. In that moment, David was in Madrid to pick up the award from Glamour Spanish Magazine like " The Most Beautiful International Male Face". 
I think it isn't necessary that I try to focus your attention in his eyes, is it?
