DO YOU LIKE? Borat takes VF
Is Graydon Carter getting cocky? Riding an 18-month hot streak at the newsstand, the Vanity Fair editor in chief has made a surprising choice for his November cover: comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. Sources say VF fashion director Michael Roberts recently shot the chameleonic British comic, who's far better known by his alter egos from Da Ali G Show, and mock-ups of the cover have been spotted around the mag's offices at 4 Times Square.
Cohen's film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, hits theaters in November, and the advance buzz is already deafening, thanks in large measure to Kazakh officials' adorable attempts to protest the movie to the U.S. government.
