Richard Buckley dead: Tom Ford mourns his late husband

Richard Buckley, a fashion journalist and husband of designer and filmmaker Tom Ford, has died, Ford’s company confirmed Tuesday. He was 72.

“It is with great sadness that Tom Ford announces the death of his beloved husband of 35 years, Richard Buckley. Richard passed away peacefully at their home in Los Angeles Sunday night with Tom and their son Jack by his side,” a Ford representative said in a statement.

The fashion journalist died of natural causes after a prolonged illness.

Ford, 60, met Buckley, the former editor in chief of Vogue Hommes International, in an elevator at a fashion show in 1986, when the native Texan was 25 and the New Yorker was 38.

Before being named to head up Vogue Hommes in 1999, Buckley did stints at Women’s Wear Daily, Vanity Fair and Mirabella after getting his start at New York magazine in 1979.
