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.

News Travels Slowly In The Model World: “Kate Moss—She’s Getting Married?”

If there was any doubt about it before, there isn’t now: Summer is here and in full swing. Ford Models celebrated the occasion last night with a model-packed barbecue at its 57th Street offices, attended by Hanne Gaby Odiele (below left), Ming Xi (left), Linda Vojtova, and Sigrid Agren, as well as a few designers and editors winding down over watermelon margaritas.

Most guests regretfully admitted they hadn’t been lying poolside or attending many barbecues as of late, due to their grinding work schedules. “I haven’t had much of a summer yet—I have been locked in my studio,” Richard Chai told Style.com. “I’m hoping to go on vacation at the end of July.” Model Catherine McNeil (below right) had been working too, but for her, New York was the vacation. “It has been so long since I have been in New York because I have been working, but I’m hoping to have time to play some volleyball along the West Side Highway before heading to Europe again,” she said.

It was the eve of fellow model Kate Moss’ nuptials, but that fact apparently hadn’t made much of an impact on the model community.

“Kate Moss—she’s getting married?” asked McNeil. “When’s the wedding?” Xi added.—Kristin Studeman
