Twice a year, fashion partakes in one of the most beloved and intense traditions of that world: Fashion Week. Since its invention by the first lady of fashion public relations Eleanor Lambert after World War II, Fashion Week has become the place to be whenever it rolls by. Besides seeing the the newest styles for the next season, many go to see a fashion performance. Always ready to one up another, designers have been very creative in catching the public’s attention. Here are five of our favorite attention-grabbing moments that have happened on the runway.

The 1990s comedy film Zoolander grew to fame for its hilarious riff on the vain world of male modeling. In 2016, Zoolander 2 will be released, giving fashion lovers everywhere another film to laugh at. While filming Zoolander 2 in Milan, stars Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) decided to take a walk down the runway at Valentino’s Fall 2015 show. Their hilarious surprise visit was the perfect treat to the ultra-serious show, and even caused Anna Wintour to crack a smile.

As fashion goers were sitting patiently to see the spring 2015 Moschino show, the famous phrase “Hiya, Barbie” sang through the loudspeakers and set the theme for the show. Moschino’s designer Jeremy Scott is known for his kitschy take on high fashion, from his eclectic outfits for Katy Perry at the Super Bowl or any of Miley Cyrus’ outlandish outfits. However, this well-received play on the world’s most popular doll and Scott’s idol will be a moment in fashion runway history for years.

Chanel head designer and icon in his own right, Karl Lagerfeld is known for his celebrity friends and quirky designs. What he has also established is a reputation for elaborate stage designs that speak to his overall theme. Whether it’s a realistic supermarket with Chanel-embossed labels or an all-white underwater theme with models streaming from an oversize shell, Lagerfeld always knows how to amaze his crowd.

Many fashion lovers know the standard runway protical: thin models walking up and down a runway in beautiful clothing. Designer Rick Owens challenged this tradition with his memorable Spring 2014 collection that featured step performers of all shapes and races who wore Owens’ clothing while performing an amazing step routine.

During the early and mid-2000s, Alexander McQueen was the show to go to for a spectacle. Not only did McQueen know how to make finely made clothing, he also knows the art of the fashion show. For his Fall 2006 ready-to-wear collection, McQueen began his show with an eerie Kate Moss hologram that appeared out of nowhere in an empty glass pyramid.
