David Gandy is keeping his "fingers crossed" he will be named Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards 2010.
The 30-year-old catwalk star is up against Lara Stone and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the prestigious accolade at the annual ceremony and admits he would love to win it.
Speaking at the premiere of short film 'Away We Stay', which was commissioned by W London Hotel, he told BANG Showbiz: "I'm up for model of the year in December - I've got my fingers crossed for that. I'm up against the girls for it - Rosie and Lara - so it would be great to win it."
The British Fashion Awards take place at the Savoy Theatre in London on Tuesday December 7 and will recognise the most influential people in the fashion world today as well celebrating the UK's contribution to the industry.
David - who stars opposite Helena Christensen in the 12-minute short film - has also revealed he has got a new top secret fashion project coming up as well as several Dolce and Gabbana campaigns.
He said: "I've got the new Light Blue advert coming out. It's for the Number 2 fragrance and the new video is coming out December 1. I've also got some Dolce campaigns coming out, and then there's another project which I can't really talk about. After that there are a couple of other projects with Dolce and Gabbana coming up for next May in time for the show season which should be interesting."
'Away We Stay' - which can be viewed at wlondon.co.uk/awaywestay - was shot on location in London's Leicester Square and was written and directed by Edoardo Ponti.
In the film, David and Helena play fleeting lovers who have to decide whether they want to make a new life together.
