Seize the David!

David's been everywhere lately...except on my blog. I do take my responsibility seriously and realize I've been slack lately. Plus it was my New Year's resolution... More David!

He's been busy - advancing British men's fashion, acting as an ambassador for Battersea Dog and Cats Home, remodeling a new home, traveling the world and looking good with a glass of amber and wearing a suit better than any man on the planet. It's all in a day's work and all womankind appreciates his devotion to making us happy.

But let's face it - we all love David the model. And there are certain campaigns that are the best of the best.

Here are some of my favorites.

Massimo Dutti Equestrian:

M/D's Equestrian Collection was a F/W 2013 shoot, by Hunter and Gatti. I think I like the outdoorsy look best especially when it includes animals. Okay, it comes in second to the suits! Always the suits...

Man of the World:

I don't think David has looked more rugged and unmodel-like than in this campaign. The pics show maturity and seriousness, not just a pretty boy. It reflects a man of accomplishment but also a man ready to conquer the rest of the world. And he will...

DV Man's A Fistful of Dollars:

Way back in 2009, David did a shoot for DV Man, photographed by Tobias Lundkvist. The campaign features more of down and dirty David, embracing the life of a cowboy. The first shot is probably one of my ALL time favorites of David.

Here's the link to the DV Man campaign:

Dolce and Gabanna Light Blue:

This is a three-for-one. All of these campaigns are excellent, but I agree with David, this campaign needs to tell the next part of the story. You know, where the couple is walking along the shoreline, pushing a pram...

Dolce and Gabanna 2008 Pre-fall.

There is nothing soft about David in this campaign. He is all man - serious, determined and mysterious. Gah, he is so hot here! I think this might be why his name has been brought up when James Bond was recasting.

Glamour Spain:

I asked my friend Shika Brown, also a huge DJG fan, which campaigns were her favorites and she suggested this next campaign: David in the kitchen.

Tomorrow, I'll have some new favorites. Seriously, has he ever done anything that isn't perfection? So what are your favorites? Follow along for more David commentary from time to time!
