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?

Although it’s hideous you’ve got to give Sasha Baren Cohen some cred for being brave enough go out in public wearing that thong thing for his character. That’s got to be the scariest thong in existence… Who in the hell besides borat would wear something like that??

Can’t wait to see the movie!

…borat is a comedian, not a real person, his clothes are almost like costumes, the girl below me is an idiot.

Understated is always best…in voice, writing, fashion, and humor.

Sasha Baren Cohen has got my vote in Asia! We all love him here esp. his character in Ali G. We are keeping our fingers crossed for his new movie arrival to Asia so we can keep getting lots of hard laughs fr his acting!! Hahahahaha…
