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?

He is not funny at all.
He is ridiculous, and there is a lot of difference between being funny and pathetic.

The thong is a speedo, but Borat doesn’t know how to put it on!
And what’s with all the lack of a sense of humor, people?
All you who are disgusted need to lighten up!

Well Jul, sorry to say I had never heard of him before, nor did I know that his outfits were costumes. Don’t be so catty, not all of us are in “the know” as much as you obviously are. Reeeowr!

Vanessa, if you don’t think he’s funny, why are you wasting your time talking about him. Yeah, pathetic.
