Derek Zoolander is so hot right now.
The iconic character, played by Ben Stiller, is back — as is his sidekick, Hansel, played by Owen Wilson in the 2001 cult comedy. Zoolander 2 is set to release next year and the pair is hard at work promoting the upcoming flick with hilarious appearances at fashion shows in Paris.
“Derek and Hansel crashed the Valentino Paris catwalk to the delight and surprise of the fashion world,” reads a post on Valentino’s Facebook page, accompanied by the two actors making ridiculous poses in Valentino’s spring and summer looks. “Post show they posed with models Xiao Wen Ju and Tilda Lindstam at the Eiffel Tower. The two actors wear total looks from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection while the models wear looks from the Pre-Fall 2015 Camuamour collection.”

Let us be the first to say those two are really, really ridiculously good looking, even nearly 15 years after Zoolander came out.
Stiller told USA Today he was pleased that the series of promotional stunts, one of which included walking the runway at a Paris Fashion Week show, seemed to be well-received by crowds and fans.
“I was a little surprised,” he said. “I mean, we didn’t know. It’s been 15 years since the movie came out, so we really didn’t know if people remembered or cared. It was nice to know that there was a little bit of a connection there that people had.”
But even though Stiller is a little surprised, we’re not. Who doesn’t love the movie that gave us so many iconic one-liners?
And with that, for some reason, we’re craving an orange mocha frappuccino!
