Andre 3000 smiles with Barney’s creative director Simon Doonan at the launch of his menswear clothing line Benjamin Bixby at Barneys New York.
The premiere took place during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week’s kick off last Friday, hosted by actress Charlize Theron and many guests stopped by to see what Andre had in store.

JUSTIN MAKES A DEBUT DURING FASHION WEEK

Justin, photoed with designers Johan Lindeberg, Marcella Lindeberg, and his business partner/friend Trace Ayala all took the runway after the William Rast Spring 2009 runway show this past weekend.
Both Timberlake and Ayala collaborated with designers Johna and Marcella to create both the Spring line and show.
