From American sportswear legend Ralph Lauren to certified tuxedo whisperer Tom Ford, click through to see 14 seriously famous posh papas (and one iconic godfather!)
Vince Camuto
Vince Camuto is not only the CEO and chief creative officer of the Camuto Group, but also a father of five. This year the National Father's Day Council named him the 2014 "Father of the Year," an award designed to honor contemporary lifestyle leaders in fashion and family. Talk about #1 Dad!
Ralph Lauren
Ralph Lauren notoriously began his career designing and selling neckties out of a drawer in the Empire State Building. Now a legendary designer, Lauren has three children, all whom have followed in his high-powered footsteps. His son Andrew is a film producer/actor, and his daughter Dylan owns Dylan's Candy Bar (the greatest place on earth for those with a serious sweet tooth). His second son, David, is a senior vice president at Polo Ralph Lauren and is married to Lauren Bush.
Tom Ford
Tom Ford and partner Richard Buckley adopted a son back in October 2012 and named him Alexander John Buckley Ford. Now that's quite a name! Here's to hoping that Ford releases a line of luxury tuxes for tots soon.
Oscar de la Renta
The designer is perhaps most known for red carpet and eveningwear, and has dressed every first lady since Jackie Kennedy (except for Michelle Obama). Oscar de la Renta has a total of five stepchildren from both of his marriages. Eliza Bolen (left) serves as vice president of licensing at his namesake label, and he also has an adopted son, Moises (right), who launched his own women's ready-to-wear line called MDLR in 2009.
Max Azria
BCBG Max Azria
Theirs is a relationship of love found in unlikely places—Max and Lubov met in 1991 after a friend's referral that Lubov begin working at BCBG Max Azria Group. Now, the pair have three children together and Lubov is a stepmother to Max's three older children.
John Varvatos
John Varvatos, a designer with rock and roll style in spades, has a daughter, Thea, with his wife Joyce.
Elie Saab
Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab became an overnight sensation when Halle Berry wore his design at the 2002 Oscars, where she won Best Actress for Monster's Ball. Saab met his wife, Claudine, when her mother bought one of his dresses, and they have three sons together.
Calvin Klein
New York-born designer Calvin Klein has one daughter, Marci, with his first wife Jayne Centre Klein. Marci is an Emmy-winning producer who has worked on 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live.
Billy Reid
Billy Reid was born in Louisiana, and his Southern roots translate into his line of men's and women's clothes, shoes and accessories. Reid lives in Florence, Alabama with his wife and three children.
David Neville and Marcus Wainwright
Rag & Bone
David Neville joined the Rag & Bone family in 2005, and has two children with makeup artist Gucci Westman.
Tommy Hilfiger
Tommy Hilfiger, the designer who dressed music-industry favorites like Britney Spears, Destiny's Child and Aaliyah in the 1990s, has four children with his first wife Susie, and a son with his current wife Dee Ocleppo.
Kenneth Cole
Kenneth Cole Productions, Inc. had truly unlikely beginnings: Cole rented a trailer, posed as a movie production company and filmed "The Birth of a Shoe Company"—all to sell shoes in midtown Manhattan. His bending of the rules worked, since the company sold 40,000 pairs of shoes in three days. Cole has three daughters with wife Maria Cuomo Cole, who happens to be the daughter of former New York Governor Mario Cuomo.
Honorable Mention: Karl Lagerfeld
While Uncle Karl may not be a father per se, he is godfather to six-year-old Hudson Kroenig. The adorable mini-model (he has walked the Chanel runway no less than six times and been photographed for The Coveteur!) is the son of Brad Kroenig, a male model and close friend of Lagerfeld's.
