Paris Fashion week has been all about pap walks, ill-advised peroxide jobs and photobombs. So it’s a pleasure to see a set of not-so-fresh faces on the runway. Some serious fashion. Blue Steel, if you will.
Derek Zoolander and “Hansel, so hot right now. Hansel.” made a surprise visit to the Valentino show. Their fierce stances and duckfaces ushered in an aura of hushed respect from the audience. Or perhaps people were trying not to laugh. Does it matter? You can see their runway walk in this video.
Really, this was simply a visit from Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson to announce their mutual career returns with Zoolander 2. Is anyone excited for this sequel? I don’t know. Twitter lit up with the #valentino tag when Zoolander and Hansel hit the runway. They posed with Anna Wintour backstage (for Mario Testino) and made a selfie-stick video backstage. Anna Wintour smiled. Be afraid.
You’d better work it, boys.
