New York’s very own Ben Stiller in his Zoolander persona hit the Paris Fashion Week runway on Tuesday for Valentino. As you can hear as you watch the video, the crowd loved it, stomping, yelling and clapping in amazement once they realised what was happening. He was announcing in the most delightful way possible, that Zoolander 2 was coming to our screens some time in the future
Derek Zoolander did New York chic proud in a dark blue glitter brocade suit with a navy overcoat, appliqued with butterflies, of course. Everyone fashion forward New York man has got to have his butterflies. His offsider Hansel (actor Owen Wilson) rather let the side down by doing his strut in pygamas with a nicely designed but rather bland and boring grey overcaot over the top. Both dropped their coats, haute couture model style as they hit the end of the runway. Perfect!
Zoolander had his broody eyes and pursed lip face going during his strut and Hansel kissed the air in a pouty move. Brilliant stuff and the crowd was delicious in their response, definitely not Paris cool more adoring Broadway rapture. Anna Wintour insisted on a pic with these two incredible fashion icons on either side of her, as you do if you’re Anna Wintour and can command the heavens if you need to. Go guys, can’t wait to see the film.
