“Zoolander 2” is happening. How do we know? Derek Zoolander and Hansel stole the runway show at Valentino today at Paris Fashion Week to make the announcement. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprised their roles from 2001 cult-hit movie to announce the upcoming sequel. Looks like Stiller can still out-Blue Steel any model on the catwalk.
Valentino’s reps divulged that they had been sworn to secrecy about the stunt — the kind of antic one might have expected from a house like Moschino, known for its fashion show tomfoolery. The “Zoolander” team wanted to work with a more serious brand, though.
Quite the juxtaposition. The Derek and Hansel walk came out before the finale when all the models make one last loop around.
A jaded and exhausted audience of editors went bonkers — and especially loved it when Wilson-as-Hansel flung his coat halfway’ down the runway.
