If his skating is any evidence, Johnny Weir has a thing for Lady Gaga, and both of them happen to enjoy wearing animals as fashion pieces; For Gaga, a meat suit, for Weir it’s good ole fashioned fur.

The three-time U.S. National Champion figure skater is serving as a guest designer at Adrienne Landau’s Fall 2011 NY Fashion Week show, and has created pieces that include items featuring fox, rabbit, mink and chinchilla fur. But this isn’t Weir’s fist venture into fur, as PETA attacked him before for using fur in one of his skating outfits. Yuck.

“I’m a firm believer in real fur. I don’t believe in fake fur,” Weir told Stylelist. “Despite having death threats and people wanting me to be hurt because I wear fur, that makes me more aggressive in my choice to wear fur. It’s my choice. And I feel like everyone is entitled to that. This is America, after all.”

We at Ecorazzi are definitely anti-fur, and it’s disappointing to see someone with so much talent make such poor decisions that hurt animals. Let’s just hope that none of his fans follow in his skating shoes.
