We all love a makeover, right? Well, it turns out that Minnie Mouse is no different - except she has designer Stella McCartney to thank for her new look. So, why has the famous mouse scrapped her iconic red polka dot dress?
Disneyland Paris took to Twitter this week to announce the cartoon character’s new outfit, writing: “Stella McCartney has designed Minnie Mouse’s very first pantsuit, and it’s gorgeous #DisneylandParis30”.
After her creation in 1928, Minnie’s new look will mark the first time in history that the Disney character will scrap her famous red dress in exchange for a costume fit with trousers.
The iconic fashion designer has produced the midnight blue pantsuit and, of course, a matching bow for the cartoon mouse to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Disneyland Paris.
Her progressive pantsuit look will also be worn in “honour of Women’s History Month” in March as a “symbol of progress”.
McCartney said in a statement: “What I love about Minnie is the fact that she embodies happiness, self-expression, authenticity and that she inspires people of all ages around the world. Plus, she has such great style!”
The fashion mogul is also keeping sustainability in mind, stating that Minnie’s “blue tuxedo” will be made with “responsibly sourced fabrics”.
“This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation. She will wear it in honour of Women’s History Month in March 2022,” the statement continued.
The Independent also reported that McCartney is further collaborating with The Walt Disney Company, launching a Minnie Mouse T-shirt in celebration of International Women’s Rights Day on 8th March 2022.
