In an Instagram post by Fashion East, it appears that menswear designer Craig Green has made the wardrobe cut for the highly anticipated film Zoolander 2. The shot shows villain Mugatu (played by Will Ferrell) rocking the look. Green was named Emerging Menswear Designer at the 2014 British Fashion Awards and in just a few seasons has become one of London Mens Fashion Week's hottest shows. 

This reveal is just a morsel of the storm that is Zoolander 2's buzz campaign. Announced last March after lead actors Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson closed Valentino's ready to wear collection in character, the pair more recently appeared in the actual windows of Valentino's Rome boutique and Stiller and co-star Penelope Cruz made the current cover of US Vogue. Like its predecessor, the film is a fashion industry-parodying narrative of epic proportions. In the time between the original and the sequel, fashion has become vastly more diverse, fluid and experimental, so one thing is certain: Zoolander 2 has a huge amount of new material (both in humor and fabric) to work with.

With a worldwide release on February 12, the wait is almost over!
