David James Gandy (born 19 February 1980)[7] is an English model. After winning a televised competition, Gandy became a successful model. For several years, Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana featured him in their campaigns and fashion shows. In an industry dominated by skinny males, Gandy's muscular build caused some menswear fashion designers to move to a more masculine standard.[8] The increase in his popularity and name recognition resulted in a broad portfolio of clients, magazine covers, editorial photo shoots, interviews and industry awards.

Having gained a reputation for his personal style, Gandy moved beyond modelling to designing his own range of underwear, lounge-wear and swimwear for Marks & Spencer. He began writing a blog for British Vogue, car reviews for British GQ and lifestyle articles for Telegraph Men and launched two mobile apps. Gandy has participated in numerous charity projects and fundraisers, including launching "Blue Steel Appeal", his own charity foundation.

Modelling career[edit]

Background[edit]

Gandy was born in Billericay, Essex, England, the son of Brenda and Chris Gandy who ran a property and freight company.[9][10] In his youth, he wanted to be a veterinary surgeon but his school results were below the entry cut-off for vet science studies.[11] While studying multimedia computing, he went to work for Auto Express, delivering the latest Porsches and Jaguars to the track for testing.[11] Before graduating from the University of Gloucestershire with a Marketing degree, Gandy's flatmate entered him (without his knowledge) into a model-search competition on ITV’s This Morning hosted by Richard and Judy.[8] The 21-year-old Gandy won the competition which included a contract with Select Model Management in London.[2]

Work[edit]

During the early years of his career, Gandy modelled for a variety of companies including: Shiatzy Chen, 7 for all Mankind, Zara, Gant U.S.A., Hugo Boss, Russell & Bromley, H&M, Carolina Herrera, Massimo Dutti and others.[12] In 2006, he became the face of Dolce & Gabbana, annually starring in their apparel campaigns and fashion shows through 2011, working with female supermodels such as Gemma Ward, Scarlett Johansson, Gisele Bündchen and Naomi Campbell as well as male models including Noah Mills, Tony Ward and Adam Senn.[13][14][15]

Gandy for GQ (2009)

Gandy was initially best known for the 2007 advert of Dolce & Gabbana's fragrance 'Light Blue' with Marija Vujović (shot by photographer Mario Testino) which had 11 million online hits and saw a 50-foot billboard of him displayed in Times Square.[16] He modelled for their 2008 calendar, shot by photographer, Mariano Vivanco.[17] In 2009, portrait and fashion photographer Rankin recreated seven iconic photographs in a BBC Four Special entitled, "Seven Photographs That Changed Fashion." He selected Gandy to recreate 'Fred with Tires', originally shot by Herb Ritts in 1984.[18][19]

Gandy returned as the face of the second 'Light Blue' fragrance campaign for 2010, but this time with Anna Jagodzinska.[20] He also made a short promotional film for W Hotels with Helena Christensen called "Away We Stay".[21] In 2011, the fashion house published "David Gandy by Dolce & Gabbana", a 280-page photographic coffee table book of images chronicling their years of collaboration.[22] That same year, Gandy shot four magazine covers and five fashion editorial photoshoots. In 2012, he was featured on sixteen magazine covers, eighteen fashion editorials[23] and modelled for Banana Republic, Lucky Brand Jeans, El Palacio de Hierro and Marks & Spencer.[24] In addition, Gandy was named the brand ambassador for Johnnie Walker Blue Label.[25]

In 2013, Dolce & Gabbana released the third version of the 'Light Blue' fragrance campaign featuring Gandy. Once again, Mario Testino filmed the adverts and commercial on location in the island of Capri, in southern Italy but this time with the Italian model Bianca Balti in the female role.[26] Bionda Castana, a British shoe label, released a fashion film featuring Gandy called "David Gandy's Goodnight." In it, he seduces several women who discover later that he has stolen their shoes.[27] On 26 September, Gandy and Jaguar released a short film called "Escapism" which featured Gandy driving models such as the C-Type, E-Type, XKSS as well as the new F-Type.[28] At the end of October, Gandy was named the face of SM Men's Fashion (one of the largest department stores in the Philippines) and made a brief runway appearance during Philippine Fashion Week.[29] In November, Marks & Spencer launched their 2013 Christmas advertising campaign, "Magic & Sparkle". The fairy-tale-themed commercial featured Rosie Huntington-Whiteley with Helena Bonham Carter and Gandy.[30]

In May 2014, Gandy was cast as Jennifer Lopez's love interest in her "First Love" music video.[31] The video, directed by Anthony Mandler, was shot on location in the Mojave Desert during a sandstorm.[32] On 15 June, Marks & Spencer announced that Gandy had designed a range of underwear and sleepwear for the brand's premium line called 'David Gandy for Autograph'. The collection (modelled by Gandy) launched on 18 September 2014 with public appearances in several international cities.[33][34] In August, Savile Row tailor Henry Poole & Co announced they were expanding into the Japanese fashion market and that Gandy would be the lead model for their campaigns and adverts.[35]

In May 2015, Gandy announced the addition of swimwear to the 'Gandy for Autograph' range with Marks and Spencer.[36]

Fashion projects[edit]

In May 2010, Gandy spoke at the University of Oxford Union as part of a panel that included photographer Tony McGee, Victoria & Albert Museum senior curator Claire Wilcox, fashion consultant Frances Card and Dolly Jones, the editor of British Vogue.[16] He released the "David Gandy Men's Style Guide" mobile app in 2010 which offered style and clothing advice to men and which ultimately hit Top 3 in the Lifestyle market.[37]

British Models during the 2012 London Olympics Closing Ceremony

In September 2011, Gandy was named the spokesman for the Martini’s 'Luck Is An Attitude' campaign, launching their model-search competition on the Spanish Steps of Rome, which were opened specifically for the event.[38] He was appointed to serve on the British Fashion Council's Committee to launch 'London Collections: Men' as part of London Fashion Week 2012.[39]

During the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony, Gandy was the only male to walk the Union Jack-shaped catwalk featuring British fashions, alongside models Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Georgia May Jagger, Karen Elson and Stella Tennant. For the occasion, he wore a gold bespoke suit by British designer Paul Smith.[40] Gandy was invited to the Oxford Union once again on 19 November 2012 with Alex Bilmes, Editor of Esquire to discuss "The importance of men's fashion."[41]

On 28 April 2013, Gandy participated in the Vogue Festival as part of a panel discussing, "Too Fat, Too Thin, Will We Ever Be Content?"

On 12 September 2013, The Daily Telegraph launched a new men's lifestyle section called "Telegraph Men".

Other judges include Jo Malone (creator of Jo Malone London), Justine Roberts of Mumsnet and Shutterstock founder Jon Oringer.[51]

David Gandy and Yasmin Le Bon - 2013 Mille Miglia

Mille Miglia[edit]

After receiving his racing license in 2012, Gandy was invited to be one of the drivers in the 2013 Mille Miglia (“1,000 Mile”) regularity trial in Italy. Each year, the three-day event passes through nearly 200 Italian towns from Brescia to Rome and back, recreating the original races which took place between 1927 and 1957. He and his co-driver, Yasmin Le Bon, were part of 'Team Jaguar', driving a 1950 XK120. Early in the race, Gandy and Le Bon were 'pushed off the road by a competitor' which caused body damage to the fender and side of the vintage car. They re-entered the race, ultimately finishing in 158th place out of 415 cars.[52]

Gandy participated in the Mille Miglia again in 2015; his new co-driver was television presenter Jodie Kidd.[53] The pair drove a Jaguar XK120 and came in 171st out of more than 400 cars that participated.[54]

Business ventures[edit]

In 2013, Vogue reported that Gandy had invested in a health-focused ice cream company called Wheyhey.[55] On 9 January 2015, it was announced that he had purchased a majority stake in David Preston Shoes, a small, East London shoe label.[56]

Gandy participated in the 'Fashion for Relief' fashion show on 19 February 2010. The event was organized by Naomi Campbell to raise money for victims of the Haitian earthquake.[57] On 17 April 2011, Gandy was part of the "Oxglam" team who ran in the London Marathon to raise funds for Oxfam. Other members of the 'Oxglam' team included model Agyness Deyn and fashion designer Henry Holland.[58] In May 2011, Gandy modelled a shirt designed by fashion designer Katharine Hamnett. Proceeds from sales of the shirt went toward the Environmental Justice Foundation’s "Save The Sea" campaign.[59]

On 23 March 2012, Gandy, along with model Kate Moss and designer Stella McCartney, made a guest appearance in a special episode of the sitcom Absolutely Fabulous to benefit Sport Relief 2012.[60] Three days later, the UK's Battersea Dogs & Cats Home announced that Gandy had been named the institution's first celebrity ambassador.[37] He participated in fund-raising campaigns, such as Dog Walk Auctions to benefit the organisation.[61]

In January 2013, Gandy launched "Blue Steel Appeal", his charity foundation created to raise money for Comic Relief's Red Nose Day. The foundation, which derives its name from the satirical fashion film Zoolander, will host a series of fundraising events.[62] The first was an auction on eBay in March 2013 which included collectible items and fashion experiences donated by Victoria Beckham, Mollie King, Dolce & Gabbana, Lucky Brand Jeans, One Direction and others.[63] In the fall of 2014, during the London Collections: Men SS15, Gandy participated in the "One for the Boys" celebrity style show organised by Samuel L. Jackson to promote awareness of testicular cancer and encourage early detection of the disease.[64]

Gandy made an appearance in a humorous sketch entitled "National Treasure 2015" in support of the Comic Relief Red Nose Day 2015.[65] He also modelled a T-shirt to raise money for the event.[66] Gandy was one of the celebrities to design his own Shaun the Sheep to raise funds for the Wallace and Gromit Children’s Foundation. His design, which he called "Fine & Gandy" was inspired by London tailoring. The five-foot sculptures were placed in various London locations from 28 March through 25 May in an exhibition entitled "Shaun in the City".[67][68] Gandy participated in Greenpeace's 'Save The Arctic' celebrity photo campaign, a collaboration with fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood and photographer Andy Gotts. The display at London's Waterloo tube station was intended to increase awareness of (and raise funds for fighting) environmental threats to the Arctic Circle, particularly oil drilling off the coast.[69]

On 29 July 2015, Gandy participated in Marks & Spencer's 'Spark Something Good' initiative in which hundreds of volunteers completed 24 projects over a 24-hour period throughout the U.K. In his role as a new ambassador for the Achievement for All charity, Gandy worked at the Maria Fidelis School in Camden.[70]
