If the name “David Gandy” doesn’t immediately register, we guarantee his face will. Gandy has been modeling for Dolce & Gabbana for nearly 10 years—they even put out a book together!—and he’s also fronted campaigns for a slew of fashion brands, not to mention participating in the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics in London. Bottom line: he’s hot. Like, real hot.

This summer, Dolce & Gabbana is introducing the newest fragrances to join the Light Blue collection—Escape to Panarea and Discover Vulcano—and to celebrate, we got to spend some quality time with the handsome supermodel, who is not only reallyreally, really good-looking, he’s also seriously nice (and funny!). Gandy submitted to our rapid-fire set of 12 questions—over coffee and the morning paper, of course. (Go on, gaze into the photo and pretend you’re the one he’s having coffee with. We won’t judge.)
