Milan's prestigious fashion week has been hijacked by British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen in his alter ego of Bruno, the flamboyantly camp Austrian fashion reporter.

Borat actor crashes Agatha's party at fashionshow
MILAN (Reuters) - Actor Sacha Baron Cohen, best known for his eccentric character Borat, burst onto the catwalk at Agatha Ruiz de la Prada's show in Milan on Friday, bringing the playful show to a halt as security guards stepped in.

Baron Cohen is in Milan making a new film about fashion centered on his character Bruno, a flamboyant Austrian fashionista.

He bowled onto the start of the catwalk rolled up in what turned out to be a long, black caped outfit with eccentric accessories.

After a few minutes of darkness while Baron Cohen, or Bruno, was escorted off the catwalk, the show started again. Models had kept their cool but the designer was visibly upset when she appeared at the end of the show.

Baron Cohen's film is titled "Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Male."

Agatha Ruiz de la Prada's show restarted after the actor left. The designer said her show was inspired by Spanish painter Diego Velazquez and the headdresses were based on typical Spanish piƱatas.

But the dresses with their bold shapes were more reminiscent of another famous Spanish painter -- Joan Miro.

@Walter Hinteler,
I might be upset if I were the designer, but since I'm not, I find it hilarious.

I wonder if the designer is any relation to Miuccia Prada.. will have to check that out. Actually, the publicity might be a good thing for the designer, whom I'd not heard of. I do somewhat follow the fashion world, but not very intensively.

@ossobuco,
She's Spainish - the "other Pradas" are Italians.
