Influential LGBTQ+ Celebrities And Their Partner
7. Richard Buckley & Tom Ford
Fashion journalist and editor Richard Buckley revealed a sweet story in his article about his first date with Tom Ford in 1986. Ford told him he would become a millionaire and would have exhibition throughout Europe. True to his words, Tom Ford rose to prominence as a global fashion designer. In 2005, he made successful investments when he launched his own luxury brand.
The two then tied the knot in 2014. Sadly, Buckley passed away in 2021 at 72 years old due to “natural causes after a long illness”. It was a great blow to Ford, but he has tried his best to get used to a life without Buckley, although it is hard and he still wants to call him sometimes.
