Best known for his advertisement with Dolce & Gabbana‘s Light Blue fragrance back in 2007 which had 11 million hits online and a 50 foot poster of him shot by Mario Testino that graced Times Square, David Gandy has certainly had an incredible rise to cult status in the modeling and fashion industry. Fast-forward to 2011, apart from being Dolce & Gabbana‘s favourite male supermodel, he has a book dedicated to him, also by Dolce & Gabbana no less.
David Gandy and Anna Jagodzinska by Mario Testino for Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
The book is simply titled David Gandy by Dolce & Gabbana and features an array of sensual and provocative photos -consisting of both early and exclusive new images- that are shot by Mariano Vivanco who had dedicated an entire calendar to him back in 2008. Available at all Dolce & Gabbana stores worldwide, all proceeds will go towards the designers’ supported charity–Project EUPLOOS.
What do you think? Pointless? Or all for charity while tugging at heartstrings of young women out there? To me, charitable causes aside, it’s just really for keepsake and nothing else. I don’t even think it would be appropriate for a coffee table book. Heck, if these images are enough for you, bookmark this page right now and you’re done! But you gotta admit, he is the epitome of a male supermodel no doubt.
That aside, check out what went down during the launch of the David Gandy by Dolce & Gabbana book in Milan in the video below.
