So Paris fashion week just happened. Do you know what else happened? The epic return of Derek Zoolander and long-time rival Hansel made an actual real-life runway debut.
What are we talking about? Remember the first Zoolander movie where the guys had a fashion walk-off; well Valentino ended his FW show with a crowd-pleasing stunt: Having Ben Still and Owen Wilson as their Zoolander characters close the show, strutting their famous blue-steel pose.
The pair ‘crashed’ Paris fashion week to promote the movie Zoolander 2, coming out in 2016. But before they were unleashed on the fashion community they received some tips and runway approval from the queen of fashion herself, Anna Wintour.
‘Usually I go right, left, right, left, right, left, but today I’m going to start left in honour of how the sun rotates,’ says Ben’s character, Derek.
