Everyone’s favourite be-pecked, silent smouldering Essex boy (NOBODY say Mark Wright, not even as a joke please) has been causing a bit of a kerfuffle recently. We all know that he has a large lady-and-gay-gentlemen following, and now two of his most powerful fans, a certain Stefano Dolce and Domenico Gabbana have put their money where their mouth is and devoted an entire book to his unwavering gaze, bronze pecs, elegant posture, and we expect, those gorgeous little triangular bits in between his tummy button and hips. *Removes cardigan and fans self lightly*.
Phew! What is it called? David Gandy by Dolce&Gabbbana, of course, and it runs the entire gamut from the sharp tailoring of his first walk on a menswear catwalk in 2006, to stripping down to those unforgettable white swimming trunks for the Mario Testino-shot Light Blue Pour Homme (including dingy). David has been a key part of D&G’s most iconic and most lustful imagery for an entire decade and now he’s been immortalised like this, fashion fans and admirers of the male form alike will now be able to obsess over his fine figure long after he has retired from modelling and gone on to become the next Tom Cruise/Gok Wan/Jeremy Clarkson (delete according to the media career you’d most like him to take up in later years).
How very Dorian Grey. Marvellous.
