He’s been called the “king of sex” and “the straight­est gay man in the world”. Men want to be him. Gays and gals want to fuck him. Tom Ford not only em­bod­ies male fash­ion and style, he de­fines it.

Pre­vi­ously the cre­ative di­rec­tor of Gucci and Yves Saint Lau­rent, Ford launched his own sig­na­ture brand in 2006, cre­at­ing a multi-mil­lion dol­lar busi­ness. As if that wasn’t enough, he then turned his hand to pro­duc­ing and di­rect­ing with a film adap­ta­tion of Christopher Ish­er­wood’s A Sin­gle Man, fol­lowed by Noc­tur­nal An­i­mals.

Dot­ing hus­band and fa­ther, ve­gan and Hil­lary Clin­ton sup­porter, Ford isn’t afraid to ad­vo­cate for is­sues close to his heart. In 2009, Ford stated he pre­ferred the term “civil part­ner­ship” for both op­po­site-sex and same-sex partnerships, and to leave “mar­riage” to re­li­gion to de­cide.
