John Legend is a singer songwriter who has collaborated with musicians such as Kanye West,, Alicia Keys, Estelle and André 3000. He has won multiple industry awards including an Oscar for Best Original Song, a Golden Globe and ten Grammy Awards.

Legend was born in 1978 in Ohio, USA. He began playing the piano at the age of seven, but didn’t get his musical break until he left college and was introduced to, and signed by, Kanye West. 

Sartorially, John Legend is something of a minimalist. Like many respected style icons, he knows what suits him and he works that knowledge to his advantage. He is typically drawn to low key but luxe outfits, complete with sharp tailored pieces and high quality accessories.

He certainly knows how to work a classic tailored look

Despite his predilection for minimalism, Legend doesn’t shy away from a patterned suit. We’re impressed by this eye-catching polka dot double breasted jacket

Who says men can’t wear metallics? Certainly not Legend: here he is on the red carpet in a silver suit
