The 72 years of age style columnist, who was hitched to creator Tom Ford, 60, died at their family home on Sunday night, September 19.
Following 35 years of marriage, Buckley died of “normal causes.”
The tragic news was affirmed by Ford’s group who delivered an assertion on Monday, September 20.
It read: “It is with incredible trouble that Tom Ford reports the demise of his darling spouse of 35 years, Richard Buckley.
“Richard died calmly at their home in Los Angeles with Tom and their child Jack close by.”
The couple initially met at a design show in 1986 and flashes flew between them as they began dating before long.
