August 27 is a very important date in the fashion world, and that's because it marks the birth of the one and only Tom Ford. Throughout his illustrious career, he's credited with bringing the sexy back to mega-brands like Gucci and Saint Laurent, and launching an even sexier one on his own. In addition to his memorable collections, he helped to create some pretty iconic (and at times, downright raunchy) imagery to complement them.
