Andre Reigns Supreme: GQ Magazine Best New Designers in America

No explanation needed- we here at The Urban Gentleman always rank Andre Benjamin number 1… he’s the centerpiece of our main image for pete’s sake, lol. Anywho, it seems as if Atlanta is going to be officially put on the fashion map thanks to Mr. Benjamin- sure we have other great designers… but none (besides Mychael Knight) that has graced the catwalks during fashion week and inside pages of fashion magazines recently. Don’t worry though, hopefully you’ll find me there in a few years (but shhhhh, it’s a secret:-)

Check out all the designers below… but ummm Andre could we perhaps get some kind of flagship store in Atlanta? (I’ll even run for awhile:-)

Lasting Memories: Inauguration Photos, Inaugural Balls, The First Family

January 20th 2009 is forever marked in history as one of the most impactful, promising, and inspiring days in history. Barack H.Obama became America’s first (50%) African American President (Bi-racial president)… the 44th President of These United States of America and he’ll technically be the 45th as well since he’ll be serving a second term in another 4 years.
There are millions of photos from yesterdays festivities, but I chose a few that I absolutely love and a few others of celebrities from the Inauguration Balls.

They used Lincoln’s Bible– the same exact bible Lincoln used when he was sworn in as the 16th President of the United States in 1860.
