The feeling was mutual and Gandy dished about the musical experience:

I got the call and thought it would be great fun and an experience which is a little bit different to the things that I’ve done before…The treatment included a lot of iconic fashion references and the Director, Anthony Mandler is very well respected having worked with artists like Jay-Z, Rihanna and Taylor Swift, so it was an exciting opportunity.

He told Vogue about his new charitable venture:

After working briefly with Comic Relief on the Absolutely Fabulous sketch with Kate Moss and Stella McCartney last year, I decided to launch the Blue Steel Appeal to fundraise for Red Nose Day through fashion. I hope that the fashion industry will come together, have some fun, show off their best Blue Steel looks and raise money at the same time.
