Andre 3000's Coachella Overalls: What's Going On with the Outkast Star's Outfit

Andre 3000 rocks overalls at Outkast's Coachella performance. 

Along with too-short cut offs, crop tops and feather/flower combinations that appear to be something of a 1960s caricature, you could call overalls somewhat of a Coachella staple. And last night, Outkast's Andre 3000 (better known in film circles as Andre Benjamin) sported a pair of vintage workman overalls while headlining the first night of Coachella's first weekend.

In front of a crowd that included Benjamin's "idol" Prince (who technically enjoyed the show from backstage), the rapper/actor sang hits including "B.O.B.", "Rosa Parks" and "Roses," all while wearing the railroad striped one-piece. Underneath, the performer wore a tie-dyed T-shirt and -- wait for it -- a sweatshirt that, we're told, was "repping his son's high school." Darling.

This isn't the first time this particular pair of overalls made an appearance on Benjamin, after debuting at a Compound event in Atlanta in January. But last November, the stylish singer got even crazier with the denim, opting for a pair of overalls over a chambray shirt that was topped with a jean jacket. Just like a little Canadian cherry.

But back to Coachella. If only all festival-goers could look that cool in their overalls and not like they were wearing hippie costumes that came from a plastic bag at the party store, the polo fields -- and the world -- would be a better place.
