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?

Dahlia: why not to focus on the question and answer it instead of being mean with me ???

Is not my fault that the guy is not funny for me at all and this is a free country where I can say whatever I want.

If the guy is funny for you ok, but dont try to make people think the same than you. There are lots of people here who say this guy is funny or not, so please give me a break and get a life.

Vanessa, Ooohh “get a life”. Hahaha. I have one AND a sense of humor. Just because you have the right doesn’t mean you should say whatever you want. I never told you what to think, just curious why you criticized him so harshly. You wanna be that harsh, then deal with people calling you out. Borat would have a field day with you.

LMAO! That third picture of the banana hammock has got me balling! Of course I pick that outfit, it suits him, lmao. Just kidding. He is hilarious and these are just costumes to suit his humor. I really don’t think the real person, AKA: Sacha Baron Cohen would actually wear a banana hammock to a wedding or something, unless it was scripted or something. This is a character people, where is your sense of humor? I just can’t stop laughing.

Borat is not funny. Not even slightly amusing. Not at all. The third picture is utterly disgusting.
