Fashion designer Tom Ford recently admitted to being off Botox since welcoming his first child back in 2012. However, many bloggers think that the style star’s smooth forehead says differently.
Tom Ford is 52 years old, although you wouldn’t know it to look at him. The designer tells WWD in an interview, that since welcoming his son Alexander John Buckley Ford (allegedly via surrogate), with husband Richard Buckley, his priorities have changed and he no longer places the same emphasis on his appearance as he once did.
Via WWD, Tom Ford has revealed that he stopped receiving Botox treatments following the birth of his son Jack. In an interview with WWD, Mr Ford said: ‘I’ve decided to age. Since we’ve had Jack I haven’t had a Botox injection or a filler. I haven’t had time.’
Mr Ford and his husband Richard Buckley welcomed Jack in September 2012 – an experience Mr Ford says ‘has really changed me.’
‘I’m not sure how to articulate it,’ he added, elaborating: ‘A lot of things I cared about before I don’t care as much about anymore.’
The 52-year old fashion designer, who will be presented with the CFDA’s Lifetime Achievement Award at tonight’s ceremony, says that his level of success is among the categories to take on a less priority following Jack’s entrance into his life.
He explained: ‘It has damaged — no, damaged is the wrong word. It has minimized my ambition a little bit, my ambition in business, my ambition in having a beautiful house. It has become the most important thing in my life. Everything else has had to recede, including my appearance. I don’t care about it. I care about being successful. I just don’t care about any of it as much. You can’t.’
Just five years ago Mr. Ford was an avid fan of Botox, admitting in 2009 that he’s usually ‘not even able to frown’, during an interview for The Advocate. The then 48-year-old, who was promoting his directorial debut for A Single Man at the time, added: ‘But my last injections are wearing off a bit and I am able to frown right now. I’d never get a full face-lift, though. Face-lifts on men are a disaster. But I’m a firm believer in Botox and Restylane. Absolutely. Why not?’
However, Tom’s appearance at the Met Gala looked as though he was still getting Botox injections as his forehead was very smooth and shiny and wrinkle free for a man his age who has decided to age naturally.
In fact, back when his son was born, Makemeheal.com noted that the new father looked as though he was glowing, not only with pride but with the help of the injectable as well.
At the Met Gala, Tom not only looked like he had gotten Botox injections (maybe just for the special occasion?), but may have had a hair transplant procedure as well. Tom’s hairline was unusual and his hair looked a little thick and clumpy, which could be the result of poor product, but resembled more closely a hair transplant.none
