Poor Prada. Three days ago, it was models falling on their tushes because of ridic heels. And according to Perez Hilton, yesterday Agatha Ruiz de la Prada’s runway show during Milan’s Fashion Week was interrupted by a fashionista of the comedic kind: Sascha Baron Cohen.
Cohen jumped on the stage dressed as his Austrian model character Bruno. He strolled down the stage past the poor, unsuspecting models and then refused to leave. So, of course, the police were called to drag him out. Hilarity! I couldn’t tell it was him with that getup on:
Then, after all that hullabaloo, he managed to sneak into the model dressing room. When the models assuredly began to squeal in fright, security came in and kicked him to the curb once again. I wonder how his lovely wife and new mother Isla Fisher feels about him potentially seeing naked models?
Cohen’s currently in Milan shooting for his new film Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male. Obviously the new film is being shot in the same low-budget, documentary style as his 2006 flick Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
I loved Borat, but I wasn’t going to venture to see the same sort of uncomfortable antics displayed again in Bruno. However, after hearing about his attempts to burst the high-faluten bubble of Prada, I might have to part with my $10.50 just to watch the looks on everyone’s faces.
