David Gandy wants to be Britain’s Model of the Year


I know many of you don’t care about my various lovers, like Gerard Butler (too gross), or Clive Owen (why don’t you love him?!?) and now David Gandy, British model and professional beautiful man, and my Forever Dong. The last time I wrote about him, you girls actually seemed to like it, though, so here’s hoping this will be another good post. As you may know, David cannot live on our love alone, so he still has to work for a living. He’s one of the most in-demand models out there, and the way I rationalize it, I’m providing My Lover with a great service – added exposure in the American market. Whew… does anyone get hot just thinking about “Gandy” and “exposure” in the same sentence? Anyway, David is nominated for a British Fashion Award this year, for Best British Model of the year. He’s up against two girls. And he wants to beat them out!

David Gandy is keeping his ”fingers crossed” he will beat Lara Stone and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to be named Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards 2010.

The 30-year-old catwalk star is up against Lara Stone and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the prestigious accolade at the annual ceremony and admits he would love to win it.

Speaking at the premiere of short film ‘Away We Stay’, which was commissioned by W London Hotel, he told BANG Showbiz: “I’m up for model of the year in December – I’ve got my fingers crossed for that. I’m up against the girls for it – Rosie and Lara – so it would be great to win it.”

The British Fashion Awards take place at the Savoy Theatre in London on Tuesday December 7 and will recognise the most influential people in the fashion world today as well celebrating the UK’s contribution to the industry.

David – who stars opposite Helena Christensen in the 12-minute short film – has also revealed he has got a new top secret fashion project coming up as well as several Dolce and Gabbana campaigns.

He said: “I’ve got the new Light Blue advert coming out. It’s for the Number 2 fragrance and the new video is coming out December 1. I’ve also got some Dolce campaigns coming out, and then there’s another project which I can’t really talk about. After that there are a couple of other projects with Dolce and Gabbana coming up for next May in time for the show season which should be interesting.”

‘Away We Stay’ – which can be viewed at wlondon.co.uk/awaywestay – was shot on location in London’s Leicester Square and was written and directed by Edoardo Ponti.

In the film, David and Helena play fleeting lovers who have to decide whether they want to make a new life together.

Seriously, Gandy is the best. He should start modeling women’s clothes. AND LINGERIE. Sweet Jesus.

Here’s that commercial/short film “Away We Stay” – it gets really good around the five-minute mark. When he leans in to kiss Helena, I actually squeal:

  2. skibunny says:

    This looks like an interesting movie. The guy is Mr. Beautiful!!!

  3. Sakyiwaa says:

    of course, he’s forever dong material. whoa! how can ONE PERSON BE THIS GORGEOUS! squeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal! hotttt! gets my stamp of approval! go win, man!

  4. Cheyenne says:

    He’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous, but something tells me he’d be a lousy date.

  5. Johnny Depp's Girl says:


    Gandy Gandy Gandy!

  6. Serena says:

    I can’t believe how blue his eyes are! They just hypnotise me! He’s got the type of beauty that makes me all bumbling and nervous, sort of like a female Hugh Grant (and I’m English so I come with awkwardness already programmed, this man would reduce me to gurnin incoherently in a corner)

    That being said, I heart him!

  7. ElizabethM says:

    I never, ever, ever, ever, ever (to the infinity!) want Hollywood to turn David Edding’s Elenium or Tamuli novels into movies/tv shows/whatever BUT if they do, I hope they get Gandy to play Sparhawk (assuming Gandy can act, of course). David is exactly how I picture Sparhawk.

    • rayjaymor says:

      David Gandy playing Sparhawk?? I certainly hope you are trolling!!

      1) He’s nowhere near rough enough looking. (there is no way Sparhawk would even recognise moisturiser)

      2) Sparhawk was lauded as being relatively ugly in the books.

      3) C’mon, as if Gerard Butler wouldn’t be perfect.

      4) Gandy is also too young, Sparhawk is well into his 40’s at the beginning of the series.

  8. Roxanne75 says:

    are you kidding me? YUMO-O-VISION! I have never seen him before until now and when the page popped up I was like/….WOA!

  9. bluhare says:

    Kaiser are you ever going to leave one for the rest of us?????

    Those have to be blue contact lenses, he’s a cuter version of Harry Connick, Jr. and I bet he’s gay. HA!!!

  10. lala in nYc says:

    where do I cast my ballot??!!

    love the scruffy look and blue, blue eyes!

    david is definitely forever dong material!

  11. Cheyenne says:

    bluhare: I bet he’s gay!

    Ya just had to throw a monkey wrench into the works, didn’t ya?

    (P.S. It wouldn’t surprise me. 🙁 )

    • KPM says:

      I wouldn’t care if this “Eye Candy” was a alien from waaaaaay outta space!!!! He is absolutely divinely gorgeous! He is Soooo dreamy …….siiiiiiigh

  12. latam says:

    he’s so hot when his mouth is closed, but when he talks his mouth or teeth or something are so odd. watch an interview

  13. Hautie says:

    The interviews I have seen of him, he does not ping my gaydar. At all. I suspect he likes the ladies.

    And that picture of him in the gray jacket with the white tshirt…. holy crap. If I saw that man roaming around in the men’s dept of Neiman’s… I would end up embarrassing myself.

  15. Chicoulina says:

    I can’t beleive how ugly Helena is when she’s out in daylight.I always found her breath taking but I guess she’s that way only in photos.
    As for David,wow!!!When she’s taking pictures of him and he says please,my heart melted!

  16. Kayla says:

    He is so totally hot, talk about him, write posts about him, WHENEVER YOU WANT!

  17. Meanchick says:

    Um, where do I vote?!

  18. Kitkat says:

    I love all three of your lovers. We can share. Right?

  19. YvetteW says:

    Somebody please get Mr. Gorgeous away from Helena. I don’t even like watching them pretend! Arggghhh!

  20. Randomness says:

    Dear Lord,
    Thank you for putting such men on this earth so that we may enjoy them. How is he even genetic possible?!

  21. whybenice says:

    I thought Hugh Jackman was the ultimate fantasy. I was wrong.

  22. Megan says:

    He looks like a Barbie doll :/

  23. suzyq says:

    He is just beautiful!! I look for him on your HGF.. Love him!

  24. Louise says:

    I love his eyes. I could stare at them forever.

  25. GiGi says:

    Love him. But why is Helena celebrating Movember? It was so distracting.

  26. Kiska says:

    His eyes are unbelievably blue. Stunning.

  27. Flipper says:

    Guess what ladies hard to believe I know but he’s not gay!

    Clooney used be my fantasy man but he’s ageing badly and his skank loving ways have well and truly buried him for me.

    David is the new man in my fantasy life. How I hope he moves on to the big screen, this little advert film may just be the beginning of an acting career.

    @ElizabethM thanks for putting that Sparhawk image in my head, perfect.

  28. tango says:

    oh God, what a babe. Not only is he hot in photos, he’s hot in action (film) too. And such a gorgeous voice.

  29. jettgurrl says:

    I wouldn’t mind having his baby! LOL!!

  30. Willow says:

    I loved the whole mini-movie…and I loved seeing Helena look older & tired for once, like she’s not still outrageously beautiful.

    I can only wonder where they found my diary writings reliving my encounters with David! The film cut so much of it out, especially that hot sex-filled night. And let me tell you..that initial kiss at the 5:00 mark, pfft, it was MUCH better than that crap they showe. OOooh, the fire in David’s eyes when he’s angry/passionate/aggressive…*fans self smiling inwardly.
    Kaiser, you have plenty of adventures ahead of you with my ex-David. *winks & grins*

  31. rudy says:

    he is absolutely magical but what the hell happened to her face?! that’s helena christensen right? damn-she looks like she had one lift too many…smh

  32. Henriette says:

    WOW. Hate the dorky v-necked tshirt with shaved chest, but what a handsome man he is! More of this, please.

  33. PrimeO says:

    He’s hot even with a v-neck!

  34. Dee Vine says:

    My criteria for a hot guy: Qualifies if I saw the guy unshaven and plainclothed in a supermarket and I do a double take. G Butler and Clive Owen-nope. Gandy-YESS!!!

  36. Laura says:

    I really do enjoy you talking about your various lovers, Kaiser. it actually makes my day to know i’m not the only one obsessing over hot celebrities.
    and I love Gerard Butler, despite.. everything.

  37. LeeAnna LongWolf says:

    Ahhh The wonderfully Exquisite David Gandy, Who is not Gay (just check his track dating record), but is guilty of being the most decadent man walking alive, with a pair of devilishly gorgeous set of Paul Newman(Mr. Gandys Idol) blue eyes, and ladies Grab on to your Thongs, Bloomers or just brace yourself Effie, Mr Gandy and his people are in talks with studios about David becoming the New James Bond as in 007 Bond, ( be still still my ridiculous beating heart ) Now that would be a delight to see happen.
