Inside the Austrian fashionista dispenses style advice. Here are the highlights of the interview:
On the benefits of “manscaping”:
It’s more zan okay; it is most essential. Be careful if you do it yourself, though–yesterday ich tried to self-wax mein arschenhaller und glued meinself to ze bed. Manscaping ist important, but not as crucial as getting regular anal bleaching.
On forced to choose: Dolce or Gabbana?
Gabbana. Dolce is bald, so zere’s no hair to grab hold of.
Can men wear heels? When and why?

Vhat ein stupid question. Keep it in your assistant’s pocket, obwiously.
On the President’s style:
Firstly, ich vant to say zat I find Obama an inspiration–it gives me great hope zat, after years of struggle, someone can at last get to ze White House, despite being incredibly hot. On ze other hand, it’s slightly disappointing that he needed zat beard, Michelle, to help him–but vone shtep at a time.
On groom’s attire for a heterosexual wedding:
If Brüno vas about to be married to a voman, I’d be vearing a noose.
On other best-dressed world leaders of all time?
JFK. Obama. Castro. Timberlake.
