Like a few of his supermodel muses, Marc Jacobs spent the holidays relaxing beachside with friends and having a little fun in front of the camera. Part of their St. Barths shenanigans included the re-creation of everyone's favorite Zoolander scene, in which Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and his gang of male models head out for an afternoon of orange mocha frappuccinos and a joy ride.
