WATCH: Ben Stiller crashes Fashion Week for ‘Zoolander 2’
MANILA, Philippines – Can we take the sheer beauty of the return of Blue Steel? We’ll soon be able to see fresh moves from Ben Stiller’s iconic character – the clueless (but super hot) male model Derek Zoolander will be back on the big screen in 2016.
The two, as Zoolander and Hansel, their characters from the original movie, made a surprise appearance at the Valentino runway show at Paris Fashion Week Tuesday, March 10.
Ben and co-star Owen Wilson chose the best way possible to get people talking about the sequel to the 2001 hit comedy, that’s apparently due out 2016.
Zoolander follows the adventures of a dim male model competing for the limelight against rival Hansel, another hot talent. Everyone gets tangled up in the ugly side of the fashion world, especially when it’s revealed that some nefarious villains have interests that aren’t quite purely sartorial.
Paramount Pictures tweeted this after the show:
Ben also posted this on Instagram:
And then there are these posts from Valentino:
Now, excuse us while we hunt for our orange mocha frappuccinos. We leave you with this unforgettable scene from Zoolander – and yes, that's a young Alexander Skarsgard cheering up Ben's character!
And here's another one so you can remember just how awesome Blue Steel was.
