Who is this David Gandy?
This British model was born David James Gandy and you might have seen his fit physique gracing the catwalk and fashion campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana.

He writes a blog for British Vogue, car reviews for British GQ and he’s big on charity work too.
5 Reasons to Scream ‘Eye Want David Gandy!’
#5 His piercing blue eyes
I’m sure you would have seen this campaign for Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue fragrance and noticed his deep-as-the-ocean blue eyes among other things (ahem!). No? See the above. Lounging around on a boat in a skimpy pair of white trunks, staring right at you, we can’t help but feel the heart skips a beat. This was where he got his White Pants Guy moniker. Can you believe people actually said he’s too good looking to be a model before? Pfftt.
#4 He’s suave like James Bond
His chiselled good looks, towering height (6ft 3in), and perfect body make this British model the James Bond of the fashion world. He is reported to be a collector of watches and antique furniture, and he’s absolutely crazy about cars. “I drive like I’ve just stolen a car. I like speed, I like the challenge.” Plus, he is said to be a true gent.
#3 He’s thoroughly British
David Gandy considers himself a British ambassador. He is a great believer in Made-In-Britain products, praising the country’s deep heritage, fashion, film and etc. Of course, quality is not lost on him. He even makes it a point to wear British made clothes whenever he can, his mantra is high street not high end. Keyword – British, mmm!
#2 His impeccable fashion sense
He says great dressing for men shouldn’t be difficult but the biggest problem is that men are still quite scared of appearing gay. “Dressing well can be easy. You don’t have to buy a suit from the most expensive labels – you can pick one up from Zara or Marks & Spencer.” He added that nothing looks better than a tailored suit and because men are limited to jeans, t-shirt and suits, it’s important to be confident with accessories to look good. Well said White Pants Guy!
#1 His fabulous sexy physique
Have you seen the man in dapper clothes? And sans said clothes? Phwoaarrr…! It’s no secret that models have to work hard at maintaining their body and David is no exception as well. There is no magic pill and he’s pretty certain that changing your lifestyle is the key. How about having him as your personal trainer? He has devised the David Gandy Fitness & Training app to help you (or your man rather) shape up every part of the body.
