To the surprise of those taking in Valentino’s 2015 Fall/Winter collection, Stiller and Wilson came out as their much-beloved Zoolander characters to strut down the runway.
“Apparently Derek and Hansel have come to terms on #Zoolander2,” Stiller captioned a picture (above) on Instagram of the two backstage at the show. Joining the actors backstage was model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne, who captioned a picture, “I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more to life than being really really ridiculously good looking… And I plan on finding out what that is #ZOOLANDER2 #BLUESTEEL #DEREK #HANSEL.”
Following the show, Paramount confirmed Zoolander 2 on Twitter.
