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?

I know this is probably the wrong thing to be thinking, but what does the back of the banana hammock look like?? HAHA

jessica on

That takes balls, to pull off a banana hammock thong. It takes balls. What does the back of that look like??

Bonnie B. on

its a lot better than any of Sasha’s Baron Cohen’s “Ali G.” outfits, I’ll give him that much.

Christine Ferrara on

not so pretty

mono on

DISGUSTING! Both his outfits and his humour.

tiff on

Get a clue people… he’s a comedian, his outfits are supposed to be funny.
For those of you that don’t get his humor~ you’re exactly who he’s making fun of! Sascha Baron Cohen is quite handsome, and he’s engaged to a beautiful woman. Go see this movie!

jane says on

Bunky~ who wears a fanny pack AT ALL!???? EVER???!?

Anne on

Okay, so it’s easy to see in the photos that his “sense of fashion” is tongue-in-cheek and it’s also easy to figure out from his “humor” just what cheek his tongue is firmly implanted in. I find him tedious and so very unfunny. To each his own, I s’pose.

This was a disgusting movie and I’m shocked that cinema has sunk so low. I walked out and asked for a refund! Give me some Will Ferrell any day to this idiot pig.
