 To deafening cheers and a stunned celebrity front row, Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller closed Valentino’s Tuesday show, storming the catwalk in a headline-grabbing stunt to announce Zoolander 2

The two Hollywood stars reprised their roles as male models Derek Zoolander and Hansel, immortalised in the hugely popular 2001 film, on the catwalk for Valentino’s show. It stunned celebrity guests that included Nicky Hilton and actress Kate Mara. 

The sequel will hit U.S. cinemas on February 12, said Paramount Pictures. Stiller and Wilson will reprise their roles in the film, which will be written by Justin Theroux and directed by Stiller. 

Stiller appeared in a dark electric blue suit-and-tie ensemble with a navy trenchcoat.

Wilson, sporting shaggy long blond locks, strutted in a shiny light blue pajama print outfit with blindingly white sneakers, topped off with an eggshell blue trench coat. The audience immediately whipped out their phones to catch the moment.
