PETA is speaking out against imaginary video game character, Mario of the Super Mario Brothers for wearing imaginary fur in his games. They created a flash game to shame him for his unabashed use of fictional fur. What is the point of this? Don’t they have some dalmatians to put down or something? (Buzzfeed)

• Oscar de la Renta has enlisted the curating expertise or Mr. André Leon Talley for a new exhibition at the Queen Sofía Spanish Institute. The exhibit, entitled Joaquín Sorolla and the Glory of Spanish Dress, will explore regional Spanish history though the clothing of everyday Spaniards. You can expect fabulous pieces like a brocaded silk gown, a selection of matador costumes, and much more. Daphne Guinness has even lent some pieces from her personal collection to the show. The exhibit will run from December 8, 2011 ’til March 10, 2012. This certainly sounds like a must-see! (And the post about it on Fashionista is so well-written!) (Fashionista)

Lady Gaga has fired Laurieann Gibson, her choreographer and creative director. She reportedly severed ties with Ms. Gibson after a series of creative differences, including the theme for the pop star’s music video for “Judas”: “At one point, there was two completely different views and after the third glass of wine, [Laurie] was like, ‘Listen, I don’t want lightning to strike me. I believe in the Gospel and I’m not going there.'” I feel Laurieann on that one! (Jezebel)
