'Bruno' Makes Naughty Runway Debut in Milan


Sacha Baron Cohen wreaked havoc as he stormed the runway during Milan fashion week as his alter-ego 'Bruno', a flamboyant Austrian model famous for clashing with rednecks on Baron Cohen's Da Ali G Show. Wearing a ridiculous get-up consisting of a massive cape-like sheet, and several items tied to his body - including a suede boot and a handbag decorated with pom-poms - the comedian boldy interrupted the Agatha Ruiz de la Prada show. Oddly, he was not tackled (that measure is reserved for PETA during Fendi shows) and allowed to walk the runway before being led away by security. A man, seen above, did attempt to haul him back upon his entrance but 'Bruno' wasn't having it and continued on to strut to some cheers from the crowd. And that man doesn't look too bothered (see below).

Baron Cohen and his team used fake passes to fool security guards into letting them into a backstage area. Apparently they tried it again Thursday, but were kept out by the tightened security. The prankster is in Milan working on his next film Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male, which is due out in May.

I feel sorry for the designer, her show was ruined. Didn't Sacha Baron Cohen know this is fashion week for Spring ready-to-wear, not Fall/Winter???
