A Model Idiot: Real Life Zoolander Moments

By , dealnews Assistant Editor

Have you ever wondered if there's more to life than just being really, really, ridiculously good looking? With rumors circulating that the much-anticipated Zoolander 2 is in the works, we thought it was apropos to take a closer look at the models who we come across every day. As our writers sort through sale after sale, they tend to unearth various photographic gems that seem to embody that Ben Stiller fashion classic.

Thus, we decided to use a handful of these guys and gals to re-cast one of our favorite films. On to the professionally good-looking people!

In closing, we leave you with the immortal words of model agent Maury Ballstein of Balls Models: "Some models go left at the end of a runway, others go right. You got a lot of gifts, but hanging a louie just isn't one of them."
