Zoolander 2 is in the making and “blue steel” was welcomed in the runway of Pairs Fashion Week.

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson were present Tuesday, walking the runway in Valentino’s custom made suits without missing their famous “blue steel” facial expression which has stayed the same since 2001, when Zoolander, parody of the fashion world was first released.

As it soon turned out, it was the first promotional stunt, not the actual filming of the movie, that brought the stars to Paris.

Zoolander 2 is due to hit the cinemas in February next year. Stiller is still directing and playing the lead character Derek Zoolander, both Wilson (the hottest male model Hansel) and Will Ferrell (designer with an enormous Egao – Mugatu) will also reprise their roles.

In the first Zoolander movie, Stiller’s character gets brainwashed and ends up in a plot to kill a world leader. He is finally saved by Hansel, who is his biggest rival in modeling. The movie soon become a cult hit, especially thanks to the often absurd lines by Zoolander.
