Move over, Kimye. The real stars of Paris Fashion Week? Two familiar male models. Actors Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson returned to the runway in full Blue Steel glory, reprising their roles as Derek Zoolander and his nemesis Hansel from the 2001 film Zoolander.

Surprising unsuspecting show-goers at Valentino, Ben sauntered down the catwalk in a brocade suit and black Creeper shoes. Owen followed in an overcoat-topped pajama suit and sneakers. Although fashion insiders are a notoriously tough crowd to shock, the actors were greeted with applause and laughter from the audience. Backstage, they posed with Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, who even managed to crack a smile.
The reappearance of Zoolander and Hansel serves as a lesson to all of us: There’s more to life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking. Like getting a sequel. Filming for Zoolander 2 is set to begin in Rome later this month.
