Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson took over Valentino’s runway at Paris Fashion Week as Derek Zoolander and Hansel for Zoolander 2.
Valentino shared photos of the event to Instagram with the caption: “Marie Antoinette once said, ‘Let them eat cake.’ Derek and Hansel have certainly devoured this runway #Zoolander2 @benstiller”.
The Valentino Instagram account also shared video of Ben taking selfies/ video on the runway captioned, “Derek Zoolander and Hansel strut down the runway wearing cutting-edge fashion that asks the eternal question, ‘Où est la bibliothèque?’ #Zoolander2 @benstiller”.
The photos and video were also shared to the Zoolander Facebook and written up for VOGUE.com… no, really.
According to Page Six, the music at the fashion show suddenly changed to Don’t You Want Me and the guys walked the runway.
“It was hilarious,” said one onlooker. “People freaked out… And they were a much bigger hit in Paris than Kimye.”
