Sacha AKA Bruno Invades Milan Shows

Sacha Baron Cohen is at it again. He's left Borat at home and brought Bruno out to play for a while. In case you've never seen him in action, Bruno is his flamboyant Austrian fashionista character. Bruno is even funnier than Borat so this should be good.

While filming Cohen's upcoming movie titled "Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male" on location this week in Milan, Cohen let Bruno loose in the same fashion that he did with Borat, by not letting the "innocent" in on his tricks. Bruno and his posse (camera crew) bypassed security using fake passes at the Iceberg show and freaked everyone out when he went totally mental while "interviewing" stylist, Paolo Gerani, 5 minutes before the show was to start. Bruno was thrashing about until Gerani was able to hold him, in order for a group of security to pounce on him.

Italian TV showed footage of Cohen dressed as Bruno, wearing head-to-toe velcro and a blonde wig, running around screaming and hurling himself at the clothes racks. The models were screaming as well. Damn it! I wish I could have been there to see it. Although I would have been laughing uncontrollably, at the same time I would have been thinking OH NO, the clothes! Save the clothes!

How fun would it be to walk in Sacha Baron Cohen's aka Bruno aka Borat aka Ali G shoes for a day?

Needless to say, he along with all of his aliases, are no longer welcome into any of the fashion houses. He later tried and failed to get into the Dsquared show on Thursday.

Click here to watch partial video of what went down. I'm still trying to get the rest of the footage.

You can hear an Italian woman yelling SA-KUR-E-TEE!

the pictures of Cohen crashing the fashion show in Milan hardly look like him... judging by the aftermath, though, it looks like it was an effective marketing ploy
