Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson announced the fashion world's most anticipated sequel this morning.

The two actors appeared in Valentino's Paris Fashion Week show this morning, as Zoolander and Hansel, to confirm the film will be returning for more.

US actors Ben Stiller (L) and Owen Wilson present creations for Valentino during the 2015-2016 fall/winter ready-to-wear collection fashion show on March 10, 2015 in Paris.

The 2001 comedy still enjoys cult status and Ben previously said that the next film would focus on the world's hottest models having to reinvent themselves.

Another perk of being really, really, ridiculously good-looking? They very nearly managed a smile out of Anna Wintour.

"In the fashion world, if you go away for a year, it's changed. it just happens so quickly," he told MTV. "I think the idea in the beginning of the movie is that it's 10 years later, and Derek and Hansel are literally forgotten.

"Nobody remembers who they are, so they have to reinvent themselves."
