The Beauty Desk ask David Gandy about life lessons, his secret skill and much, much more...
While initially a little shy, taking sips on a cup of tea in the kitchen (milk, no sugar), he offers snippets of his daily routine when pressed: ‘The first thing I do everyday? Find my way to my Nespresso machine. I’m an awful morning person.’ Make a note ladies – Nespresso first thing, tea thereafter.
Conversation moves onto scent and David divulges a fondness for Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue original fragrance (‘I always wear it as the weather heats up – the fresh citrus scent is so light’) and a favourite memory of getting back from school to the smell of freshly cut grass.
After drinks, it’s time to get ready for pictures. David’s hair is being groomed by long-term friend Larry King, and once in his company he segues from slightly reticent to one of the boys: they heckle one another, joke about each other’s foibles and basically indulge in a little bromance.
So, David Gandy: enormously, ridiculously, maddeningly handsome. Handsome, friendly, easy-going, tea-drinking, Nespresso-loving and, as if that weren’t enough, we can assure you that he’s also in possession of some very charming manners. Look out for him in the July issue and, in the meantime, enjoy getting to know David a little better in the above video. And, yes, he is actually singing the Carlton Banks version of ‘It’s Not Unusual.’
