Hump Day Hunks: Italian Edition World Cup

dolce ad
Better late than never, right ladies? As promised in my last Hump Day Hunks: Football Edition, I would dedicate a whole HDH to just the players on Team Italy. Why? I think it's obvious isn't it, especially when Dolce & Gabbana features them year after year, pretty much naked.

This behind the scenes video of the D&G photoshoot is a bit steamy...

I must confess that unlike hockey, I really don't know too much about football or the players for that matter. So let's just get straight to it.

First up, Fabio Cannavaro, who I definitely recognize from many shirtless ads.

Next up, goalkeeper Federico Marchetti.

D-man Leonardo Bonucci.

Sexy striker Alberto Gilardino. I must say I'm liking this shot.

This next footballer is who I think the most gorgeous on Team Italy: midfielder Claudio Marchisio. Looking cute with both long and short hair (second pic below).

Not too sure about his posing here but I've included Gennaro Gattuso for you girls who like more manly-man types.

I've got heaps more coming on Hump Day Hunks as we build up to the start of the FIFA World Cup so stay tuned!

I started watching soccer when I was a pre-teen and the reason I got into it was David Beckham. I gotta admit though through the years the soccer players have gotten cuter:) Giardino is my fav out of the bunch. Looking forward to seeing your upcoming post!

I have no clue. I want them all. NOW.

hump day hunks = hilarious.

anyway, I stumbled upon your site and needed to comment because I noticed you have a few simply sublime pieces (including the snake necklace that you're wearing in the post below)! I am a huge fan of constantina james and frequented her oak street atelier quite often. i heard last summer that they were moving to greece-- do you know if that's true? do you know where you can still get pieces?

anyway, you have such a fun blog and i'm glad i found it! :)

Thanks for sharing those with us! Great choice...

Marda said...

I'm in love ... and speechless. I guess I have a new sport to watch until hockey starts again, AND these guys don't wear helmets or padding and take their shirts off - often! Why have I not been watching it?

Teresa said...

I don't watch soccer but I need a team to cheer for..might as well be Italy! Oh yes...Claudio is untouchable hot.

AsianCajuns (Lar) said...

Woohoo Fifa! I don't know much about footballers either, so when I saw this D&G ad it didn't register. Thanks for sharing!

Haute World said...

Not bad at all! Though I'll still never forgive Italy for beating Germany 4 years ago in the finals. But it always helps to have eye candy ;-)

lisa said...

I had to scroll through that post superfast in case any of my (male) coworkers walked by and wondered why I have so many sets of washboard abs up on my monitor. NSFW :P

It Girl (Anya) said...

I think soccer players are the best looking athletes for sure! Thanks for this post! LOL.

Savvy Gal said...

Yes, these boys are hot.

nicole said...

ok, so i'll be honest and admit that i don't watch the world cup as closely as most people do. it's hard to get into it for some reason (and i used to play soccer too!) maybe i'm just that much of a die-hard hockey fan? which, in that case, hopefully ppl can't fault me for not paying as much attention to the world cup. but then you go and post this and what the hell am i supposed to do? OMG I LOVE WORLD CUP SOCCER HOT BOYS WANT NOW.

omg claudio's piercing green eyes. i'm such a sucker for green eyes. although i prefer him with short hair.

ok so why isn't the world cup held here in vancouver? because it should be.
