Last year Moncler took over Grand Central Station with a choreographed flash mob that impressed even the most jaded Fashion Week veterans. The French outerwear titans chose an equally grand venue last night, presenting the show on ice, at Central Park's Wollman Rink. Figure skaters clad in Moncler's signature down jackets and vests dazzled the hot chocolate-sipping spectators with triple-toe loops and double lutzes. Groups of skaters wearing red, white, or blue performed their fancy footwork to a soundtrack that included M.I.A'.s new track "Bad Girls" and a chills-inducing version of Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" performed by a puffer-clad choir. Paper caught up with a few bundled up fashion insiders and asked , "If you could have any skating partner in the world, real or imaginary, who would it be?" Here's what they said:

Elizabeth Hurley: "Blake Lively -- because I'm filming Gossip Girl with her."

Waris Ahluwalia: "Any character from the film Madagascar."

Lorenzo Martone: "Natalie Portman, as her character in Black Swan."

Douglas Friedman: "Dorothy Hamill."
