Book Review: Exclusive Interviews with Eccentric People – Published in collaboration with Dallas-based luxury boutique Forty Five Ten, The Eccentrics features exclusive interviews with such icons as Iris Apfel, Edward Bess, and Dita Von Teese.
Coupled with original photography by internationally renowned photographer Ruven Afanador that captures the idiosyncrasies, characteristics, and personas of each subject, legendary journalist Hal Rubenstein defines what sets these individuals apart, and, most importantly, what makes them eccentrics.
Hal Rubenstein is a journalist, restaurant critic, designer, philanthropist and author of five books including his most recent The Looks of Love: 50 Moments in Fashion that Inspired Romance and the best-selling 100 Unforgettable Dresses. Perhaps best known as one of the founding editors at InStyle magazine, he served as its Fashion Director for fifteen years, following five years as Men’s Style Director for The New York Times Magazine, and after creating the now-cult classic Egg Magazine.
Rubenstein is co-founder and director of the non-profit Fund in the Sun Foundation, and serves on the boards of Live Out Loud and the Paul Taylor Dance Company.
The recipient of numerous awards during his career, he was honored by the CFDA in 2011 for his lifetime of achievement. He writes for Forbes, Elle, Architectural Digest, and Interview. Rubenstein lives with his husband, David Nickle, and his dog, Murray, in New York City.
