Looking good, Mr. Alonso! According the the website, the doggie’s name is Kyra. Beautiful dog, beautiful man.

Here’s a gallery of ‘making of’ shots. Click the first one to see a larger version and scroll through the rest in full size. All photos credited to Pilar Grosso and Vicky Sanz.

And here’s video of the shoot. Xabi always looks his best in motion, don’t you think?

        Is this dog his own ? If not – he should definitly get one ! I think even the dog has fallen in love wirh him 😀

          I don’t believe so – they mentioned him “saying goodbye to Kyra” in the translation for the ‘making of’ pictures. I love how she’s dragging him around in the video. 🙂

            Oh, I wished it because it would be the perfect dog for him. Also classy and perfect – they would fit together perfectly 😀 And I love the Making Of pictures, but they kinda frustrate me – whatever he does he’s just PERFECT ! Damn ! He should write a book giving us advise !

              I grew up with a dog like that, a weimaraner. They’re lovely dogs and velvety soft, as I imagine Xabi’s beard to be. 🙂

                Haha – I also got a dog, but it’s a Beagle – now I imagine Xabi’s beard to be that soft . . . OMG ! I don’t know why but I’m always addicted to hear ! I can’t even imagine sitting next to Marcelo withouth fluffing in his hair… now I imagine that with Xabis beard .. Aaah ! I would die ! You’re killing me 😀

    Now, if this isn’t worth a try to comment from phone, then I don’t know.
    Oh Xabi, sometimes I’m just wondering how he is even real *sigh*. Also, he even rocks the combo of shirt & this thingy on neck, which makes him look a little bit like a gaucho, with the only difference that he’s pretty much out doing every gaucho out there.

    This man is perfection. Lucky Nagore …

    He’s trying to kill me. I know he is….

    Would it be offensive to ask a male friend in Madrid to send me that magazine?

    oh Xabi *_* I’m glad that they didn’t photoshop the hell out of him, like they did for other photoshoots.

    Mr. Perfect. That is all. 🙂

    I am seriously considering going to downtown Toronto [over hour from here] just to try to find this issue. I found a copy of a GQ Germany last year [after trying 6 different newspaper/magazine stores] so hopefully they’ll have a copy Vanity Fair Espana.

    My favorite tumblr-er, sashayed, said once that Xabi made her go through second puberty. Sigh. He brings out the teen girl in us all.

    What issue number is this 55 or 56?

    • headbandsandheartbreak February 22, 2013 at 12:01 pm #

      Not sure. I just know that it’s the March 2013 issue. I believe it’s on stands on Monday or Tuesday.

    He looks great, but his hair looks less ginger-ish.
