PARIS — Minnie Mouse is trading in her red polka dot dress for a power suit.
Disney’s sweetheart will wear a pantsuit designed by Stella McCartney to mark Disneyland Paris’ upcoming 30th anniversary, the park announced in a tweet.
McCartney, 50, is the daughter of rock ‘n’ roll legend Paul McCartney.
“We’re thrilled to announce the first ultrachic pantsuit for Minnie Mouse at Disneyland Paris, designed by Stella McCartney herself,” the theme park said in a statement. “In honor of Women’s History Month ... find Minnie Mouse at Walt Disney Studios Park as she rocks a new take on her signature polka dots.”
In an interview with D23, the official Disney fan club, Stella McCartney said she was “delighted” about the opportunity to put Minnie Mouse in a new outfit.
“Minnie has always had a special place in my heart. We share the same values,” the designer told the website. “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!”
Stella McCartney said that Minnie Mouse’s blue tuxedo pantsuit was created “using responsibly sourced fabrics.”
“This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation,” she told D23. “She will wear it in honor of Women’s History Month in March 2022. I can’t wait for you to see this new look at Walt Disney Studios Park.”
