Rubenstein’s “100 Unforgettable Dresses” shines the spotlight on 50 of the most influential romantic moments in style from the 1930s to today. In “The Looks of Love,” he showcases events in television and film, on the runway and red carpet and in social media that have changed the way we look at love, fashion, passion, romance, marriage, beauty and style.
Attention fashionistas and art aficionados: Karen Loeffler and Melinda Cooper are once again co-chairing the Vero Beach Museum of Art’s annual Fashion Meets Art, and the Feb. 26 event promises to be bigger and brighter than ever as this time around the featured speaker is trend-setting author, designer and one of the founding editors of InStyle magazine Hal Rubenstein.
Rubenstein is a frequent guest on television talk shows and appeared regularly on the television program “Extra” as fashion expert for red carpet coverage of Hollywood’s award season. He also lectures at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Parsons School of Design and the Savannah College of Art and Design. In addition, he has been a prolific food critic and television personality, serving as a judge on “Iron Chef America” and “Top Chef Masters.”
And that’s just the tip of his resume.
Rubenstein’s name just so happened to be on Loeffler’s short list of future Fashion Meets Art speakers. How best to approach him was the question. Thanks to a serendipitous encounter within two weeks of last year’s successful event, she had her answer.
