Paris Fashion Week got a surprise appearance today from Derek Zoolander and Hansel when they stormed the catwalk at the Valentino show.

After months of speculation, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson confirmed that Zoolander 2 would be coming to our screens soon.

Much to the delight of fashion’s elite who sat front row, they competed in a ‘Walk Off’ at the end of the show, which ensured the FROW were clamouring to get snaps for Instagram and Twitter.

They took over the catwalk and managed to steal the limelight from the models as they confirmed there would, in fact, be a sequel to the 2001 comedy.

The pair were, of course, decked out wearing Valentino suits paired with coats worn over the shoulders, the only way the fashion elite will wear them, apparently.

The duo also posed backstage with Vogue magazine editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Zoolander and Hansel, and their alter egos Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, are filming Zoolander 2, in Rome.

Wilson spoke about the desire to have a sequel, revealing that there was a script, and said it was up to Ben really if it all went ahead.


Justin Theroux wrote the script, and Stiller will direct the film once more.
