The zany Derek Zoolander is back on the big screen in the new comedy Zoolander 2. The film focuses once again on the world of men’s fashion and stars a hilarious cast starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Will Farrell, Penelope Cruz, Benedict Cumberbatch, and a bevy of cameo appearances from modern celebrities. In a world of high-stakes men’s fashion, a delusional fashion mogul, and a series of murders, what would Derek Zoolander do? Obviously, look his very best. Despite the parodic couture costumes the world’s greatest male model struts around in, Zoolander 2 showcases some of the latest in men’s fashion.

Really, Really, Really, Really Good-Looking

Of course many of the contemporary fashions sported by Derek and Hansel are like those on the real runway—unwearable by regular people. But the high-end designer fashions featured in the movie, including Valentino and Saint Laurent among others, can be worn by people that aren’t really, really, really, really good looking. From suits and coats to jeans, jackets, and other men’s accessories, Zoolander 2 has a lot of fun with its stars fashion, which also adds to the comedy.

Timeless Models

Sure, we all get older, but it’s staying young at heart that matters. Derek Zoolander embodies the naivete and vapidness of someone closed off from the real world, living and working in a dreamland. Derek Zoolander is the famous Blue Steel, and he knows the world of men’s fashion like he knows his own face...perfectly. And as the world’s greatest male model, Zoolander can rock any style, regardless of age, because he is timeless. From the colorful hoodies and tight jeans made for teens and man-children to the sophisticated quasi-professional looks, replete with men’s designer accessories borrowed from Italian and French street styles.

It Pays to Be Cool

Derek and Hansel need to maintain their cool status so as not to fall prey to the cutthroat fashion world that can still break them as fast as they made them. The scarves and leather jackets normally seen on Chinese gangsters are elegant on these two. If there’s one thing that Zoolander 2 reveals about men’s fashion, it’s that men’s fashion has evolved since we last saw Derek and Hansel 15 years ago. Dovetail that with a message of staying relevant in a social media world, and we learn it pays to be cool.
