David Gandy
Dolce & Gabbana

Written by Peter Howarth, Photographed by Mariano Vivanco
 David Gandy is both an icon and muse for Dolce & Gabbana the Italian designers masculine ideal. Originally from suburban London and a self-professed car fanatic, he got into modeling by chance through a contest. Since then, he has taken the fashion world by storm, working with top photographers and stylists.

This photographic homage traces Gandy’s career from early photo shoots to the acclaimed advertising campaign for the Dolce&Gabbana fragrance Light Blue, which captured the world’s imagination and transformed him into a global icon of virility, sex appeal, and charm.
The Light Blue campaign alone garnered over eleven million online hits, and his image has been featured in a fifty-foot poster towering over Times Square in New York. David Gandy is a model of Dolce&Gabbana’s men’s line. He is also a leading fashion blogger for British Vogue online and is currently exploring a second career in acting.

Educated at Cambridge University, Peter Howarth began his career in the fashion industry working for Paul Smith and later Nicole Farhi before becoming style director for British GQ and later editor-in-chief of British Esquire. He has written for many publications, among them the New York Times, T Magazine, the Guardian, the Financial Times, and Italy’s L’Uomo Vogue. In 2002, he started Show Media, a brand-consulting agency based in London.
