The first trailer for Ben Stiller's ridiculously good-looking comedy, Zoolander 2, has been released, posing one of life's biggest questions.

"If God exists, why did he make ugly people?" Zoolander asks while striking his infamous blue steel pose.

The sequel comes 14 years after the original film became a surprise hit, earning more than $95 million at the global box office and introducing the phrases "blue steel" and "derelicte" into the pop culture lexicon.

49-year-old Stiller will direct the film and stars opposite Owen Wilson, who play his arch-rival Hansel McDonald.
