If you didn’t already know, the world’s highest-paid and best-looking male model – one Derek Zoolander – is Down Under this week promoting the release of Zoolander 2 after 15 years of living as a hermit crab.

He’s been really, really, ridiculously busy taking in the sights and sounds of Sydney: there was the red carpet premiere of the movie, where he was joined by model m8 Heidi Klum, and a flying visit to Oprah’s House.

He also took on the world’s highest catwalk – the walkway atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge – strutting his moneymaker / werking ‘Blue Steel’ for a Grade-A photo opp that, in our opinion, promotes ‘Straya much better than Chris Hemsworth.

(Note the custom Don Atari x Ksubi jumpsuit – as if he’d wear the skanky grey one most other climbers are forced to wear, pls). 

Highest catwalk in the world! 67,000 tons of #BlueSteel ?? #zoolander2 (Custom jump suit designed by @Ksubi X @donAtari_69)

The walk. The song. The lewk, which he’s appropriately christened ‘Koala’. We have shivers.

My new look: “KOALA” ??

Zoolander 2 is in cinemas February 12 and, from someone who’s already seen it, GET VERY EXCITED.
