Gandy began modeling in 2002 after winning a daytime-TV model search competition (organized by Richard and Judy). At the time he had a job delivering cars to a car magazine. Gandy then signed with Public Image Worldwide, modeling mostly for catalog work in the UK market before making top model status for Dolce & Gabbana. He has appeared in numerous campaigns and catwalk shows for the luxury brand and has worked with supermodels such as Gemma Ward and Naomi Campbell . He is best known for his advert with Dolce & Gabbana's fragrance "Light Blue" which had 11million online hits and saw a 50 ft poster of him grace Times Square. He also modeled for the luxury brand's 2008 calendar, shot by top photographer, Mariano Vivianco and is the face of the second Light Blue fragrance campaign for 2010.

Other campaigns he's worked for include: 7 for all Mankind, Shiatzy Chen, Zara, Ermenegildo Zegna, and Stefanel. He also appeared on covers for VMan and L’Optimum and editorials for Harper's Bazaar and Spanish Glamour. Renowned photographers who have shot Gandy include Mario Testino and Steven Meisel.

On 26 June 2009, Forbes Magazine ranked Gandy as the world's third most successful male model, behind Matt Gordon and Sean O'Pry.

Gandy was interviewed on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross which was aired on 30 April 2010 and is a regular blogger for Vogue magazine's website. In August 2010 it was reported he had begun an acting career by making a short film with Helena Christensen.

David was born in Billericay Essex England on the 19th February 1980 to English parents and entrepreneurs who run a freight company and have been property developers for over 10yrs. Growing up David was bullied at school for not being very fashionable and having a slight speech Impediment. After David graduated from the University Of Gloucestershire in 2001, his mates secretly entered him into a male model competition on Richard and Judy’s This Morning show. And despite the self-confessed “petrol-head” getting his dream summer job at car mag Auto Express, David won and landed a contract with top agency Select Model Management. His first five years as a model were not entirely successful. There were endless castings for catwalk shows, and rejections, before his career took off. David really hit the big-time when Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana selected him to front their campaign for the new fragrance Light Blue Pour Homme.
