Happy birthday Mr. Ford! Here is everything we love about you. Warning: this article contains an abundence of luxury, style and sex. 

10. A Single Man
In 2009 Tom Ford took time out from the fashion biz to make this feature film, based on a novel by Christopher Isherwood. He nailed it and made everyone who saw it wish that their lives could be art directed by him. 

Remember the house featured in it?

9. Kate Moss' 2001 Gucci campaign
We are all still looking for one of these bras. And how we can look like Kate circa 2001. 

8. Our exclusive interview with the man himself
For issue #97 we interviewed Tom and asked him about kissing Terry Richardson.

7. Madonna in Gucci at the 1995 MTV awards
Tom Ford redefined Gucci during the 90s with a new, sexy aesthetic. 

6. Tom Ford Fragrance's
With names like Noir de Noir, Absolute Amber, Tuscan Leather, the smell of sex goes clearly beyond the bottle.

5. This Gucci ad
There are no words.

4. Tom Ford 2010 Eyewear Campaign Shot by Terry Richardson
Starring Nicholas Hoult, this campaign was perfect amounts Tom and Terry.

3. Friendship With Carine
"Carine is a perfectionist. We are both Virgos and obsessed with details. I am always inspired by Carine," Tom recently told Harper's. Meanwhile, Carine says, "Tom is crazy. I remember once, his back hurt and he asked me to walk on him with my high heels on." 

2. 2001 iD cover
Young, but not green. 

1. Signature Style
Tuxedo, white shirt, stubble, often teamed with Carerra-style yellow lense glasses. All class.
