Gay Designer Narciso Rodriguez Marries Partner in New York City
Out fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez has tied the knot to longtime boyfriend Thomas Tolan, People magazine reports.
The wedding took place on June 22 at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City. High profile friends and clients like actress Jessica Alba and Jessica Seinfeld were in attendance.
"Tom makes Sunday gravy, meatballs and the whole deal. He’s a good cook, too. So we’ll cook together, open a bottle of red wine, and if it’s nice, we’ll sit on the terrace and watch the sunset," Rodriguez told the New York Times about his new husband in 2011.
According to People, Rodriguez is best known for designing the iconic minimal bias-cut white silk sheath that Carolyn Bessette wore for her wedding to John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1996.
"You search your whole life to find that person who is your soul mate," Rodriguez later said of Bessette Kennedy. "She’ll always be my muse."
Before hitting it big, Rodriguez worked for Anne Klein under Donna Karan. Later, he moved to Calvin Klein. In 2005, Time Magazine named him one of the"25 Most Influential Hispanics in America."
The designer has also made his mark in the fragrance industry, winning several awards.
