It’s been a Fashion Month filled with surprise appearances, crazy stunt castings, and downright "WTF?" moments. However, nobody had any idea that the best was yet to come — on the second-to-last day, no less. That was when Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson stormed the Maison Valentino runway in Paris to announce Zoolander 2.

The show may have started in typical fashion-week form, but a few minutes in, the somber soundtrack switched, and Stiller and Wilson stormed out, performing a "walk off" as their onscreen alter-egos, model frenemies Derek Zoolander and Hansel. According to those outside the show, you could hear the screams from the crowd all the way from the entrance to the Tuileries (the grounds in which many Paris Fashion Week shows take place).

Rumors of a Zoolander sequel have been swirling for months now, but leave it to the duo to announce the sequel in the most epic way possible: decked out in head-to-toe Valentino and wearing their best Blue Steel expressions. As The Daily Mail  reports, the live movie teaser (which has actually been in the works for a while) came as a total surprise to the audience.

Just this morning, Vogue  published a series of really, really ridiculously good-looking selfies from Stiller and Wilson (including a portrait of them with Anna Wintour). During Stiller's walk, he also "stole" a phone from a showgoer — who turned out to be the French Vine star Jerome Jarre.

The original Zoolander movie secured its place in fashion history by simultaneously poking fun at the industry and proving to be surprisingly accurate. Judging from its ingenious announcement, we're betting the sequel will be no different.

Zoolander 2  hits theaters on February 12, 2016. In the meantime, stream the Valentino show here to witness the hilarious runway takeover yourself.  

Update: Vogue just posted a hilarious video taken moments before Stiller and Wilson hit the runway. Find out why Zoolander is starting his runway walk with his left foot, "in honor of the sun," and why, according to Hansel, hovering just might save the earth.
