Though we have already seen actors Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson on a fashion set with their 2001 comedy ‘Zoolander’, they acted as models in their real life with a surprise appearance for a shocked audience at the Paris Fashion Show.

Valentino didn’t tap the most requested models for his Tuesday fashion show in Paris, but didn’t need to as definitely the most pleasantly ridiculous international fashion superstars were Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson).
The pair got the cheers, smiles and applause of the audience attending the show when they effortlessly walked the runway while wearing several pieces from Valentino’s fall 2015 collection to officially announce the sequel of the ‘Zoolander’ comedy which will be released in February 2016.
Stiller will direct and co-write, with Justin Theroux, ‘Zoolander 2’ in which Penelope Cruz will join the cast for the first time while Will Ferrell will reportedly reprise his role as Mugatu.
Models including Cara Delevingne, Kate Mara and Nicky Hilton didn’t really envy their stylish “colleagues” but enjoyed watching them take and hit the runway while delivering their best “blue steel” pose and leaving the audience incredulous.
Definitely owning the catwalk, Stiller and Wilson couldn’t do without taking some selfies while posing as real professional models before heading to the Eiffel Tower for a photo shoot.

Quite an original and grand finale for the Valentino autumn/winter 2015 collection in the French fashion capital!
