André Benjamin, aka André 3000 from the group Outkast, is a gentleman peacock that always looks stylish and masculine. Admittedly, most celebrities have stylists who help them with their image and fashion choices, but having a stylist doesn’t guarantee you will look good or give you a unique style. You must also have the charisma and attitude to pull it off. Mr. Benjamin has both—style and charisma. Whether he is going to a formal event or just casually hanging out, this peacock isn’t afraid to wear what he likes: colors, patterns, and hats! He knows what he likes and what suits his personality.
In addition to being a talented musician, André Benjamin is also an entrepreneur. Last year he launched his own menswear label, Benjamin Bixby. The line clearly reflects his love of clothing and men’s style. Mr. Peacock tips his hat to this fellow Gemini, Mr. André Benjamin, for his inspiring style and spirit.
