Hal Rubenstein
Fashion Director, InStyle Magazine

Fashion Director Hal Rubenstein has been with InStyle from its beginning 15 years ago. In addition to creating the signature “The Look,” the section that helped establish the identity of the magazine, and the identity of all 16 international editions, he also helped establish the highly informative, yet down to earth “voice” of the magazine, known for a confidence-building tone that assures readers that “you can do this.” Hal is also a leading authority on red carpet glamour, making frequent television appearances on top rated national morning and entertainment shows. Most recently, Hal has starred as a series judge on Lifetime’s Blush: The Search for the Next Great Makeup Artist. He has also served as a fashion expert on the second season of Bravo’s Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style. Prior to joining InStyle, he was Men’s Style Editor of the New York Times Magazine. Hal was born in New York and has never seen any reason to live anywhere else.
