From Zoolander to Cheek Jewelry, Eight Insane Moments From Paris Fashion Week

When Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson closed the show at Valentino, we knew this was an epic fashion week

Paris Fashion Week is where the creative minds are, so the shows are filled with more drama—and are frankly, crazy—than the rest of fashion month. The shows can be giant and stunty, like the Chanel runway this year, which transformed the Paris Grande Palais into a chic brasserie where models chatted and shared coffee. Or they can hold surprising thrills, as when the Valentino womenswear show closed with two very special guests: male supermodels Derek Zoolander and Hansel.

Here are eight of the most jaw-dropping moments from Paris Fashion Week.
