Stella McCartney designs pantsuit for Minnie Mouse on Disneyland Paris anniversary
Stella McCartney has created a new look for Walt Disney’s Minnie Mouse as Disneyland Paris marks its 30th anniversary. For the celebration, she’ll be seen in a blue pantsuit to replace her red polkadot dress, although her traditional bow remains a key part of the look.
The new look will debut in March, in time for Women’s History Month, with McCartney saying the new take on the signature polka dots “makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation”.
The makeover has drawn mixed reviews online with some hailing it as a positive move but one conservative US commentator on Fox News accusing those responsible for the new look of attempting to “destroy the fabric of our society”.
Minnie Mouse, a character who was introduced almost 100 years ago, will also feature on a Stella McCartney T-shirt as part of the events around International Women’s Day. And the designer will launch a limited-edition line linked to Disney’s Fantasia movie this spring.
