‘The Eccentrics’ is the result of a collaboration between luxury American boutique Forty Five Ten in Dallas and star photographer Ruven Afanador and presents the distinctiveness of 10 creative personalities. They all stand for a very unique style and an individual vision. Ruven’s in-depth, glamorous and now already iconographic portraits of Iris Apfel, New York Dandy Patrick McDonald or fashion journalist Lynn Yaeger are available as a book.
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.

In the fall of 2009, British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver arrived in Huntington, West Virginia, which had recently been named the unhealthiest city in America. Huntingtonians were suffering in record numbers from diabetes and heart disease. They were being destroyed by the mountains of burgers and fries and nuggets that filled their restaurants, schools, refrigerators and arteries. They were fulfilling the prophecy that this generation of children would be the first to live shorter lives than their parents. Oliver had come to save them – and to film a season of his new reality show, “Food Revolution.”
