VIDEO: Tom Ford Says He’s Married

Ford married journalist Richard Buckley, his partner of 27 years

Designer Tom Ford is now sporting a gold wedding band, but somehow no one noticed until he nonchalantly showed it to the audience during an interview Monday at the London Apple Store.

“Richard, yes, 27 years, and we’re now married, which is nice,” Ford said.

He was referring to his long-term partner journalist Richard Buckley, with whom he shares a one-year-old son.

The couple met at a fashion show in the ’80s when Ford’s career was just beginning and Buckley was an editor at Vogue. The two have been together since.
