There’s no doubt that Andre Benjamin, dressed in jeans, a button-down shirt underneath a vest and a sweater draped over his shoulders, is one of the top celebrity style icons of this century.

Benjamin, who rose to fame in the music industry as one-half of Outkast, has been making his mark on the silver screen for the past few years, too.
