Derek Zoolander and Hansel Storm Paris Fashion Week!

Ben Stiller as Derek Zoolander

2001's Zoolander remains near the top of my list of all-time favorite comedies (Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell? How couldn't it?) There's been talk of a possible sequel for what seems like forever; but today's surprise runway appearance at the Valentino Fashion Show makes it official. Zoolander 2 is coming!

For the record, how cool is it to have a bonafide "fashion moment," that didn't include fashion pretenders Kim Kardashian or Kanye West? Stiller and Owen Wilson took Paris by storm as their alter-egos Derek and Hansel, sporting a custom Night Butterflies brocade suit hand-embroidered overcoat with black creeper shoes, and a silk continent print pajama suit with double cashmere overcoat and open sneakers respectively.

Zoolander 2 arrives in theaters on February 12, 2016. Filming will take place at Cinecittà studios in Rome, Italy later this spring.
