Everyone who’s seen Zoolander will remember the famous ‘walk off’ scene, when Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) faces off against rival model Hansel (Owen Wilson) as they try to out-model each other with a series of pouts and poses. It’s a classic comedy moment.
But this week, Zoolander took on a new rival as he hit the catwalk (or a makeshift catwalk on the streets of Paris…) with Cara Delevingne.
Set in front of the Eiffel Tower, the pair shot a hilarious video of them showing off their best model moves which they both shared with their Instagram followers. Could this be a clue that Cara will cameo in the new film, Zoolander 2?
We’re not sure, but if the video is anything to go by, she would be a great addition to the cast. Take a look below:
We love this video, not just because of their amazing poses but because Zoolander and Cara were both sporting a supermodel essential – a pair of stylish sunglasses. It may be night time, but that doesn’t stop these fashionistas from donning their favourite eyewear styles! This photo that Derek Zoolander uploaded to his Instagram page offers a closer look at their shades of choice and offers some serious style inspiration.
Guys. About an hour in and it’s getting pretty real. This girl Cara totally speaks to me. And then I speak back. and then she says something. Then I do. Then she says stuff again. so many words my head is spinning! I think I might be in love. Shhhh… #putaringonit? ? A photo posted by Derek Zoolander (@zoolander) on
If Cara and Zoolander’s antics gave you eyewear envy as well as laughs, SelectSpecs are here to help. Let’s take a look at how you can copy their fashion-forward sunglasses style.
Get the Zoolander Look
Ben Stiller’s alter ego is rarely seen without his sunglasses, so if you want to perfect your Blue Steel look, you’ll need a great pair of shades.
The fashion chameleon has been seen in everything from classic aviators to statement coloured sunnies. However, the pair featured in his Paris walk-off with Cara are a rather unique style, with two-tone black and dark green frames. We’re not sure where Zoolander’s glasses are from, but his classically cool wayfarer style is easy to emulate.
When it comes to stylish eyewear, you can’t get much better than Ray Ban. The Ray Ban RB2140 Original Wayfarer sunglasses feature the same classic shape and have an effortless vibe that’s easy to wear.
The Ray Ban wayfarer is available in a choice of great colours, but for a classic catwalk-ready look that Zoolander would approve of, this pair features black frames and crystal green lenses.
Steal Cara’s Sunglasses Style
Cara Delevingne is a true trend setter and her catwalk face off has proved no different. One of our favourite style icons here at SelectSpecs, she’s regularly seen in the hottest eyewear of the moment.
We’re almost certain that the glasses Cara is wearing here are from Chanel and may be the Chanel 5343 sunglasses. While these exact shades aren’t available at SelectSpecs, we can show you how to get the look.
The Michael Kors OMK2009 GSTAAD sunglasses are a great alternative to Cara’s Chanel glasses, featuring the same glossy black frames and blue gradient lenses. We love the designer gold detail on the sides of these sassy shades.
So…now you’ve got the perfect pair of sunglasses, all you need to do is practice your pout and your catwalk strut.
If you loved this video, look out for Zoolander 2 which is due to hit cinemas on February 12th. We can’t wait for more hilarious model behavior and, of course, eyewear inspiration!
