Last night, Zoolander 2 premiered in New York City. The event, which brought out fashion VIPs alongside the stars of the film, including Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penélope Cruz, and Will Ferrell, and models Gigi Hadid and Stella Maxwell, was without a doubt the fashion party to see and be seen at.

Although UAE residents will have to wait until February 25th to see the film, Savoir Flair is getting in the Zoolander spirit with a roundup of quotes from the famed film that work in our everyday Dubai realities.
