We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Derek Zoolander and Hansel had their first "walk off" since we last saw them strut down the runway in 2001's Zoolander. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprised their roles as really, really ridiculously good-looking models, and surprised the crowd watching the Valentino runway show at Paris Fashion Week last night.

In the video below, Stiller never lets his "blue steel" look down, and as for Wilson, he's just "so hot right now." They both sashay down the runway to The Human League's "Don't You Want Me" for old time's sake. Stiller is donning a blue Valentino trench coat, and Wilson with some silky pajamas under another Valentino coat. It's just perfect.

E! Online reported that the actors used their fashion show surprise as a way to officially announce the release of Zoolander 2, which is scheduled to open in theaters on Feb. 12, 2016. The upcoming comedy has Derek Zoolander reinventing himself once again with the ever-changing face of fierce modeling, and Stiller will be back in the director's seat.

And take hot selfies like this:

In case you need a refresher since it has been nearly 15 years since the Zoolander premiered, here's the original walk-off challenge between Zoolander and Hansel:
