Favorite Calendar for 2008: David Gandy

Many of you have seen the shots before, but I am excited as I finally purchased a copy of the Dolce & Gabbana 2008 Calendar featuring supermodel David Gandy.

Beautifully shot by photographer Mariano Vivanco (Website Found HERE:). Even if you did not know Mariano's work, I am sure most have seen it. Mariano has some very high profile campaigns out there and has worked for Dolce and Gabbana many times. Check out the site, I am sure you will recognize some of the great work.

If you have not bought the calendar, you still can, check out the official site HERE: to find out where.

I loved reading a short account by the beautiful David Gandy about the shoot in GQ Style.

Milan 13, January 2008

"David Gandy didn't plan to take it all off. 'My agency was trying to keep it "No bum, no this or that",' he says. "But Mariano, the photographer, is a friend, and he said, "Let's do the shot, and if you don't like it, I'll delete it." I couldn't say fairer. He showed me the shot, and I loved it.'

So came about Dolce & Gabban's exclusive David Gandy calendar, given out to fashion editors on the eve of the A/W 08 collection and available on request at Dolce stores for regular customers.

"David definitely embodies our ideal of male beauty: healthy, fit, happy."
Domenico Dolce of Dolce & Gabbana.

More on David Gandy tomorrow!

Favorite Discovery Of The Day: Jared Ward

Remember all those scenes on Will & Grace when Jack was teaching acting, or auditioning actors. He would always end up getting them to take their shirts off. Well, while recently watching an old episode from 2002, I was taken with one of those actors. There was something about his facial expressions, confused and embarrassed at being shirtless in front of his acting class. His name is Jared Ward and this episode from Will & Grace is his first credit listed on IMDB. There is not much on the web about cute Jared, but he has been on several television shows like CSI Miami, Moonlight, Without A Trace and October Road. He has also been on various other tv shows and movies. It looks like Jared is joining Heroes for Season 3, so maybe he will get the exposure he deserves. He certainly is an appealing actor, with a great face.
