What's Borat's Best Look?

11/08/2006 at 12:55 PM ET

The box office returns make one thing clear: Americans liiiiike fumbling faux Kazakh journalist Borat (otherwise known as comedian Sacha Baron Cohen). His moviefilm Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan held the No. 1 spot at the box office after opening last weekend. But the verdict is still out about one thing: Borat’s fashion sense. While he tells PEOPLE that he doesn’t need a stylist – “I able to put on my own shirt and antipants,” he says – he could use a some coaching. At least, he’s been trying to step it up a bit on the red carpet –witness these three dazzling looks. First, he goes Mr. Hollywood in a skinny tie, shades and a shiny suit. Then, there’s his “casual tourist” look. (Who doesn’t love a purple fannypack?) And finally, Borat models a barely-there chartreuse “banana thong.” (We’d love to see Mr. Shorts Matthew McConaughey wearing one.) Now we want to know: Which Borat look do you give your thumbs-up to?

Do people honestly think he’s being serious fashion-wise? He’s hilarious! I personally like the suit best though.

Hes a fake. I saw his movie. It was funny. Then found out he ripped off a guy who has been doing the same exact comedic sketches since the early 90s. FAKE FAKE FAKE. Naughty Naughty! Check out the real Borat:

I love it lol, he is soooo funny!! If anyone hasn’t seen his movie already you must it’s hilarious!! And I agree, I really don’t think he’s serious about the bananna thong and fanny pack, he’s a comedian, he’s trying to be funny duh!

The best part is that Sasha Baron Cohen is actually pretty darn handsome in real life, out of character! And he’s Cambridge educated! *swoon*

Who wears a fanny pack right in front? What a maroon.

I think he looks sexy. I like the banana hammock thong, he so sexy to me. Mostly because of his sense of humor and his crazy antics.
