Zoolander 2

Zoolander 2 cast channel their inner models for New York premiere

The stars shined big and bright at the New York premiere of Zoolander 2 last night, as the cast were photographed strutting their stuff not down the red carpet, but down the catwalk. Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, and Penelope Cruz channeled their chic character counterparts and worked the catwalk with a style Derek Zoolander himself would be proud of.

When asked about his modelling technique and if he looked to Derek for guidance, Stiller told People “Um, well that was Derek, that wasn’t me. When Derek is out there, it isn’t me and he channels something from higher, you know? It’s just like a pure inner beauty that he channels that I can’t take any responsibility for.”

Everybody who’s anybody came out to cheer the cast along, with many famous faces attending the chic event, from Anna Wintour, who features in the fashionable flick, to models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, as well as Jennifer Aniston, whose husband Justin Theroux plays Evil DJ and who also co-wrote the script for Zoolander 2 with Stiller.

Zoolander 2 Review

Two of the worlds really, really, ridiculously good-looking male models re-launch themselves onto the runway in Zoolander 2 for what turns out to be not so much a really, really, ridiculously good sequel, but rather one that is merely good enough. Perhaps if the major faux pas of showing the film’s funniest scenes in the trailers as part of the build up to the much-hyped release had not been committed, such as the theatrical assassination of Justin Bieber, or the return of the criminal couture designer Mugatu (Will Farrell), then Ben Stiller’s second outing as Derek could have been much more amusing. However, foreseeing these gags aside, Zoolander 2 does fashion some hilarious funnies, parodying the self-indulgent selfie culture with which modern day life is so suffused, allowing us to have a good laugh at our own vanity when we laugh at Derek’s pouty poses. Indeed, Derek may even be dubbed the Father of the Selfie, with the Zoolander cast recently cementing their place in the Guinneas World Book of Records for a photo taken with the longest selfie-stick ever. For serious.

Zoolander 2Directed and written by Stiller, Zoolander 2 trails our two breath-taking beauties, Derek and Hansel (Owen Wilson), who must save the day when the world’s most beautiful celebrities are being killed, all with Derek’s signature ‘Blue Steel’ look on their faces. Teaming up with Interpol Fashion Division Agent Valentina (Penelope Cruz), the pair set out to fix things the only way they know how, by once again strutting their stuff on the runway and reclaiming the adoration of the fiercest fashionistas, many of whom pop up in the movie, including Anna Wintour, Valentino, and Marc Jacobs, among others. Indeed, Zoolander 2 is a very glitzy affair, with too many cameos to count, as everybody from Bieber to Katy Perry to Ariana Grande to Benedict Cumberbatch to Sting, to name but a select few, putting in an appearance, as apparently everybody wanted in on the chic comedy.

The talented cast, which also includes Kristen Wiig who gives a hilarious performance as the devilish designer Alexanya Atoz, deliver a film that, although may not split sides, will certainly tickle ribs.


Zoolander 2 London Fan Screening

Lights! Camera! Selfie-stick!

Have you ever wondered if there is more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good-looking? Like attempting to achieve something that no one else has, like, say, breaking the record for a photo captured by the world’s longest selfie stick perhaps? Well, Derek Zoolander achieved just that at the London Fan Screening of Zoolander 2 on Thursday 4th February, an accomplishment which shall go down in a blaze of glory in the history books, or at least the Guinness Book of World Records. For serious.

Creator of the legendary Zoolander, Ben Stiller, was even presented with a certificate from a Guinness Book of World Records representative for the feat.

Stiller strutted his stuff along the red carpet for the special event, along with the rest of the talented cast which includes Owen Wilson, Will Farrell, Kristen Wiig, and Penelope Cruz. Also joining in the fashionable affair was designer Valentino, who was snapped posing with a starstruck Zoolander.

Fifteen years after Zoolander first smouldered onto our screens with his trademark ‘Blue Steel’ look, Derek and Hansel return to save the day when the world’s most beautiful celebrities start getting picked off one by one, among them, prepare yourself, Justin Bieber! And just when the world was starting to appreciate his musical prowess; so cruel. Speaking about the original film, Stiller told the Press Association “I felt bad for Derek after the first movie came out, because I think he thought he was going to have a bigger career after the movie, and nobody really went to the movie. And his modelling career kind of went down. Last few years there’s been a resurgence and now he’s like back on top really, back in the limelight. I think when he realised the first movie wasn’t a documentary and it was actually supposed to be fun – because he tried to sue Paramount – he got very confused. Anyway, it’s nice to have him back”. It certainly is nice to have the chameleon of fashion back on screens, as I think we can all agree it has been a long time, no Z. Fans can rejoice as the wait is finally over, with Zoolander 2 previewing in theatres Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th before officially opening on Friday 12th.
