When you've got it, flaunt it! Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson recently crashed the Valentino show at Paris Fashion Week dressed as their legendary characters, fashion icons Derek and Hansel, to promote Zoolander 2, expected to hit theaters Feb. 12, 2016. Check out the video below to see the guys work the runway!

While Audrey Hepburn may have said it first, it's clear Stiller and Wilson agree: Paris is always a good idea. Whether you're planning to visit Paris in the spring or any other time of year, prepare to be charmed by the City of Light's scenic Seine-side walks, iconic art museums, legendary restaurants, and friendly French inhabitants—say bonjour madame! or bonjour monsieur! when entering a shop and make an effort to speak a bit of the language and you're sure to make a good impression, trust me.

The euro is also the lowest it's been in years, currently at $1.06 according to, and expected to keep dropping this year, which is great news for travelers (sorry, Europe). Keep an eye out for free days and times at popular museums, free family-friendly festivals and events around the city, and if all else fails, grab the nearest bottle of cheap (but excellent!) wine, some fresh cheese, meat, a couple of baguettes, and have the prettiest picnic of your life at Jardin du Luxembourg, Tuileries Garden, or any of the city's amazing parks for a slice of people-watching heaven. The best part: nutella crepes are never too far away!
