Celebrating The David (No, The Other One)

Michelangelo’s David doesn’t have much competition in the perfectly-sculpted department, but one man who can challenge him on the ab front is David Gandy. The English-born model’s swarthy good looks and impossible physique have made him a favorite of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who have long cast him in their shows and campaigns. Gandy hit the catwalk for the Spring ‘12 Dolce show on Saturday, then was paraded through the streets before arriving at a private party in his honor at the label’s Milan store. The occasion? The publication of David Gandy by Dolce & Gabbana, a coffee table—or, ahem, bedside—compendium of the best of DG in (and out of) D&G. Here, a few shots from the new book. Like his look? Gandyesque proportions may be beyond the reach of the common man, but the model is happy to provide a few style tips to guys in need, via his own dedicated iPhone app.
