The pinnacle of fashion
Derek Zoolander is a world-famous male model. Three time winner of male model of the year, Derek Zoolander is beloved by all. He has many celebrity friends and lives in an apartment with his 3 other male model friends.
Zoolander's life takes a turn for the worst, however, with the emergence of a young, hot new model, Hansel. Hansel wins male model of the year, and Zoolander's life begins to unravel around him: His friends die in an incident with a gasoline fight, and Zoolander becomes the butt of countless "dumb male model" groups. He is offered a chance at redemption when fashion designer, Mugatu, offers for Derek to be the face of his new collection, Derelichte. Unbeknownst to Zoolander, Mugatu is simply using Derek as a tool to assassinate the Malaysian Prime Minister.
