Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are back at it. The two announced the arrival of Zoolander 2 by walking in the Valentino runway show as a part of Paris Fashion Week. These two really, really ridiculously good-looking men [Ed. really?] have been mulling over a Zoolander 2 for several years now, but the Valentino show this morning marked the official announcement.
On the runway, Ben Stiller rocked a Night Butterflies brocade suit with overcoat and black Creeper shoes, while Owen Wilson wore a Silk Continent print Pajama suit with Double Cashmere overcoat and Black sneakers. The normally subdued audience of Paris Fashion Week went wild as the two strutted down the runway and exchanged a hateful glare. As they strutted back, Stiller ripped Vine star Jerome Jarre’s phone out of his hand and took a Snapchat video. The whole exchange can be seen in the live Snapchat story “Fashion in Paris.”
The runway sequence was obviously an homage to the epic walk-off from the first Zoolander:
The sequel will take focus on Derek reinventing himself in the modeling world. Stiller told MTV about the sequel back in 2010: “In the fashion world, if you go away for a year, it’s changed—it just happens so quickly. I think the idea in the beginning of the movie is that it’s 10 years later, and Derek and Hansel are literally forgotten. Nobody remembers who they are, so they have to reinvent themselves.”
After the show, Stiller posted an Instagram photo confirming the announcement and showing off his infamous Blue Steel.
The two also posted a photo with Anna Wintour. Do you think we could get Meryl Streep from The Devil Wears Prada in on this??!?!?!?
The sequel was written by Justin Theroux and will be directed by Stiller. Penelope Cruz and Will Ferrell have already signed on to the flick, which comes out on February 12, 2016. START COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS!
