At his age of 33 years this man managed to become one of the most desirable model in the world.In 2009 he was voted the third most successful model in the world by Forbes magazine.He destroyed the domination of skinny models in fashion industry, making a lot of fashion designers to move to a more masculine standard. His popularity increased at that level when He is not just a model, but a celebrity.
In 2006 he was chosen to be Dolce & Gabbana’s muse and rapidly rose to be one of the best known faces – and bodies – in fashion, partly thanks to a 50ft Times Square billboard of him wearing nothing but a pair of Dolce & Gabbana white pants and a spritz of the Light Blue house fragrance. He is David Gandy – the big boy on runway.
He has been photographed with the world’s top photographers including Mario Testino, Steven Meisel and Steven Klein. “David has something of what the Eighties supermodels have,” Testino has said. “He radiates health and positivity. I think he has what it takes to be very big. It’s exciting because it signifies a real shift in men’s fashion. The male model world is changing.”
He also wants to promote great dressing for men that, he says, “shouldn’t be difficult”. “Men are still quite scared of the connotations of looking gay, even in 2010,” he says. “But 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 and for an extra £20 or £30 you could have it tailored to fit you perfectly – and nothing really looks better than a tailored suit. And because we’re limited to jeans, T-shirts and suits, it’s important to be confident with accessories to look good.”
So to be dressed like David, you will need:
1. A black slim tie with polka dots printed on. it’s a fantastic accessory, which a really stylish guy needs to have in his closet. 2. A woolen kepi. Personally I don’t wear it, but I can not deny the fact that it looks gorgeous on David. As you have noticed he uses a kepi just for making casual looks, teaming it up with a long cardi. But you may wear it with suits, just if it’s salt&pepper colored. 3. A linen blazer. 4. A casual woolen blazer, preferably grey. 5. A lighweight blazer windowpane checked. 6. A crew neck tee or sweater dressed under a blazer. You can make hundred of variants using this clothes. They construct the base of the closet. 7. A biker jacket 8. A perfectly tailored suit. Even if you think that you don’t need one at the moment and you will always look great just by wearing jeans with blazers, will come the time when a suit become indispensable. It’s a real must have. The perfect choice would be a slim fitted black variant. 9. A lightweight sweater made of thin materials. I told you already about the importance of this piece in your wardrobe. Just use the knowledges you have got. And remember dears – dressing well can be easy just if you are confident!
