Benji Madden 'gets dapper for Diaz'

Benji Madden has apparently been getting compliments on his smart new look.

The pair surprised fans by tying the knot on January 5 after dating for around seven months. As well as enjoying marital bliss, Benji also seems to be undergoing a style overhaul.

The Good Charlotte rocker was known for favouring baggy black clothes and baseball caps, but since his wedding he has been seen wearing shirts with carefully styled hair.

"Cameron doesn't have a problem with Benji's wardrobe, but he does seem to have polished up his look for her slightly. He mentioned that he could do with some smarter clothes, and it looks like Cameron's influence had led him to have a makeover," a source told British magazine Grazia.

"He's been slowly replacing his basketball shorts and tank tops with more tailored clothing, and he's been getting lots of compliments on his more refined look."

Cameron, 42, is also said to have asked good friend, and Benji's sister-in-law, Nicole Richie for some help.

Nicole is married to Benji's twin Joel and is synonymous with a stylish fashion sense.

"Benji respects Nicole's opinion, so it will have really helped having her on hand to dig him out of style rut. The trio have been going shopping together which Joel finds hilarious as Benji's been buying clothes from the same handful of shops for years," the insider divulged.

However fans need not fear, as the 35-year-old isn't quite ready to turn his back on his rocky roots. Benji is also still keeping up his love for tattoos and recently added to his body art with Cameron's name inked across his chest.

"Benji still wants to have an edge to his look," the source said.
