Fashion Director Hal Rubenstein has been with InStyle since it launched 18 years ago. He created its signature section, “The Look,” which established the magazine as the authority on celebrity style. He also helped define the confidence-building, down-to-earth tone that sets InStyle apart and has made it the leading luxury fashion magazine in the marketplace today.
An expert on red carpet glamour, Rubenstein appears on top-rated national morning and entertainment shows including The Today Show, The View, Access Hollywood, Extra, and E!. He has also appeared on The Food Network, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. He was a series judge on Lifetime’s Blush: The Search for the Next Great Makeup Artist, and a fashion expert on the second season of Bravo’s Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style. Additionally, Rubenstein was the 2011 recipient of the CFDA’s Eleanor Lambert Founder’s Award.
Prior to joining InStyle, he was Men’s Style Editor of the New York Times Magazine and wrote The Edge of Nightlife column for The New Yorker. He is the author of Paisley Goes With Nothing: A Men’s Guide to Style (Doubleday), 100 Unforgettable Dresses (Harper Collins), and The Gentry Man: The Guide to the Civilized Male (Harper Collins).
