London right now feels like the Cote d’Azur and what better way to celebrate than whizzing down the Thames in the company of David Gandy…  It’s work but not as I usually know it – and I tried to pick up some posing tips from Gandy, the most sought after male supermodel in the world.   You probably know the famous cheekbones from his work for Dolce & Gabbana and earlier this year he added Johnnie Walker Blue Label to his list of global campaigns.  From Cadogan Pier in Chelsea past the Houses of Parliament, our final destination was Butler’s Wharf and the John Walker & Sons Voyager, a gorgeous 1920s style yacht that in a sleight of marketing ingenuity the British brand have chartered to sail from Asia to Europe.  David was my co-host for a dinner for Spectator Life and friends from the worlds of fashion, film, media and music.  We even tried to persuade Mr Hudson, whose new single Fred Astaire is out this week, to give us a song on the piano…. Though she looks very at home under the lights of Tower Bridge, sadly Voyager sets sail from London this week, heading for Edinburgh. Catch the whisky palace if you can!
