Ford met his husband at a fashion show in 1986, when he was 25 and Buckley was 38. Speaking about what first attracted him to Buckley, he said, “I went to a fashion show and this silver-haired guy was staring at me with these piercing water-blue eyes. It scared me because I absolutely saw and knew my entire future.”

The couple have a two year-old son together, Alexander John Buckley Ford.

Tom Ford is one of the most celebrated fashion designers in the world. Celebrity clients include Jay Z, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie.
