OUTKAST star ANDRE 3000 has been named the world's best-dressed man by a British men's magazine.
The 30-year-old singer is renowned for his outrageous fashion statements - he wore a startling lime green jacket at the 2004 Grammy Awards, candy apple red fur for the VH1 BIG IN 2003 ceremony and a pink-on-pink ensemble for the 2003 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS.
But NICK SULLIVAN, ESQUIRE magazine's fashion director, insists the list is more about personal style than a celebrity stylist's style.
Sullivan explains, "He's a complete individual. But that's really the point.
"He's probably worn his most outrageous when he's in a video or on stage."
He explains, "They're kind of like a uniform, which I've always been into. To me, that's real style, anything that feels comfortable and expresses your personality and makes you stand a little taller."
The hip-hop guru also has his own clothing line ANDREBENJAMIN.
Although the magazine has compiled best-dressed lists in the past, this year's list is the first worldwide affair.
Other best-dressed men include PRINCE FELIPE of Spain, Afghanistan President HAMID KARZAI and San Francisco mayor GAVIN NEWSOM.11/08/2004 17:15
