Anna Wintour speaks to Zoolander and Hansel backstage at Valentino as fashion A-listers talk the walk
Most models don't get a backstage visit from one of the most powerful people in the fashion industry before a show. But, Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald are not most models.
The Male Model of the Year winners were surprised by Vogue editor Anna Wintour before they walked in Valentino's Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday.
Zoolander, who is on a first-name basis with "Anna" told her that he was "totally" ready for his appearance, explaining that he had made a slight modification to his normal runway strut.
"I'm going to keep it simple today," Zoolander, who bears a striking resemblance to Night at the Museum star Ben Stiller, said.
"Usually I go 'right, left, right, left, right, left' but today I'm going to start left, in honour of how the sun rotates."
McDonald, who has often been compared in appearance with Marley & Me star Owen Wilson, said he would be descending the runway with a conscience, opting to hover instead of completing a traditional walk.
"Environment," the 'so hot right now' model said. "It's the number one problem. But how do we reduce our footprint? Less walking."
The three fashion A-listers then posed for a "selfie stick selfie".
Valentino's show is the first time either model had walked for a designer since they prevented the assassination of the President of Malaysia at a Jacobim Mugatu show in 2001.
The president was the victim of a plot by a group of high-profile fashion designers, headed by Mugatu, who opposed his child labour reforms.
In recent years the pair have remained quiet on the fashion scene, spending their time working with underprivileged children at the Derek Zoolander Centre for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Who Want to Learn How to Do Other Stuff Good Too.
The models' appearance was to promote Stiller and Wilson's new comedy Zoolander 2, which is due to be released in early 2016.
