Minnie Mouse is trading in her distinct red dress for something a bit more modern. To celebrate Disneyland Paris’s upcoming 30th anniversary, the beloved mouse will wear her first-ever pantsuit, created by fashion designer Stella McCartney, and it’s A Look™, if we do say so ourselves. The new ensemble consists of a royal blue blazer and trousers, both covered with large polka dots and lined with stripes, and a matching patterned hair bow. Minnie thankfully gets to ditch those cursed white bloomers, and will swap her usual bright yellow footwear for some more discreet navy shoes.
Though Minnie’s style switch-up isn’t permanent – she’ll solely wear her new pantsuit around the Disneyland Paris theme park throughout March 2022 in honour of Women’s History Month – McCartney hopes it sends a strong message to Disney fans. “This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation,” the British designer said in a release, adding that she used “responsibly sourced fabrics” for each piece.
This isn’t the first time a fashion industry giant has designed custom clothing for the stylish mouse. Back in 2017, Minnie wore head-to-toe Monse, including a preppy sweater and sequin skirt, while attending the NYC label’s show at Fashion Week. That same year, Alice + Olivia’s Stacey Bendet also whipped up a polka-dotted high-low dress for her to sport at the Los Angeles Fashion Awards. Her latest collaboration with McCartney undeniably seals her fashion icon status, and we can’t wait to see what this pantsuit looks like IRL come March.
