The New York premiere of Zoolander 2 was a fashion fest, with the cast turning up in character and strutting down a faux runway at the Lincoln Centre, former home of New York Fashion Week. While it isn't NYFW yet, this definitely gets us in the spirit of things.

Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penélope Cruz and Will Ferrell were present and in full costume as Derek Zoolander, Hansel, Valentina and Mugatu, respectively. The presence of bona fide supermodels like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Stella Maxwell and Lineisy Montero, all decked out in looks by designers featured in the movie, including Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Tommy Hilfiger and Valentino, made it all the more fashion runway-esque.

Even screenwriter Justin Theroux came dressed as his character, the Evil DJ. Watch a video of Derek and Hansel getting their runway A-game on below.
