People says those working in fashion don't have a sense of humour, but the folks behind the Moncler Gamme Rouge show at Paris Fashion Week proved them wrong on Wednesday when their models took to the catwalk with a few very special friends...

As well as walking live huskies and arriving on mountaineering zip wires throughout the show, the models in the finale cuddled up to some surprisingly affectionate polar bears* as they showed off the sparkly snow queen collection, which was designed for the heritage sports / performancewear brand by Giambattista Valli.

Gimmicks aside, it was actually a beautiful collection, fusing fashion with winter sportswear via embellished puffa jackets, huge heavy furry coats and fluffy checked capes.

You HAVE to watch the video to see the cuteness in its full glory...

*Yes, we know they're just costumes.
