Congratulations are in order for Tom Ford and Richard Buckley!
The couple of 27 years has finally gotten hitched, and Tom himself revealed the news last night at the Regent Street Apple Store while being interviewed by English playwright and editor Kinvara Balfour.
You might've expected a major announcement from the renowned designer, but Tom's never really been one to flaunt his personal life.
"I lost so many friends in college - I would say more than half of my closest friends. Richard, my partner of 27 years, had also gone through something also quite tough in his life. We are now married which is nice. I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the States."
The designer and his husband first locked eyes at a fashion show in 1986 and met again 10 days later when Tom was sent to the Women's Wear Daily offices where Richard was the fashion editor.
In an interview with Out magazine, Tom recalled:
"He was adorable, and he was a complete fool. He was sort of dancing around, flashing his eyes at me, and trying so hard to be charming. I decided in that elevator ride that I was going to marry him. I'm very pragmatic, and I was, like, 'OK, there's some kind of connection here.' He ticked every box, and — boom — by the time we got to the floor, I was like, 'OK, sold.'"
And the rest is history, basically! They've been inseparable ever since!
We really couldn't be happier for them and wish them many, many more years of bliss!
P.S. The story of their courtship is so sweet! Read it in their own words HERE!
