Borat To Get Vanity Fair Cover


Who says Vanity Fair doesn't put brown people on the cover (Well, that would be us)? Until now we were of the opinion that graydon carter liked his cover subjects like he likes his billowing shirts. Quite the contrary. The glossiest of glossies is getting its first Kazakstani -- or, at least fake Kazakstani -- coverboy. According to RadarOnline:

"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."

Considering that the last person on the cover was Beyonce, we can now say categorically that Graydon Carter doesn't have a fear of a beige planet.
