Fashion On Ice? Moncler Grenoble’s Wollman Rink Bonanza

[gallery]   Designers are constantly looking for innovative ways to present their collections. From flash mobs to incorporating animals, Fashion Week-pro, Moncler, has earned a fantastic reputation for flashy and mildly ridiculous presentations. This year, for Moncler Grenoble, Wollman Rink became the label's runway. Expert ice skaters donned designer ski pants and parkas and flung themselves dazzlingly around the rink in a series of choreographed performances. Elizabeth Hurley and Margherita Maccapani Missoni were notably in attendance, braving the bitter cold in their most glamorous outerwear. For those still freezing, Moncler served rum-spiked hot chocolate, mulled wine and hard cider. "Those look like testicles!" remarked one shivering show-goer, pointing to roasted chestnuts. "I'll have a few of the ones in the middle," chirped socialite Liliana Cavendish, unperturbed. The show was extraordinary: the lights, the production-- it all worked! But with synchronized pinwheels, camel spins, and double Salchows-- it was nearly impossible to see those fabulous Moncler outfits zipping by. But who thinks about clothes during Fashion Week?! Here are some of our favorite skater poses from that three-ring circus of an ice rink.
