Step aside – there’s a new Minnie Mouse in town and she’s ditching her iconic polka dot dress.
In honour of Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary, Minnie Mouse is sporting her first-ever pantsuit created by Stella McCartney.
“I am delighted to be working with the one, the only, the iconic Minnie Mouse,” McCartney said in a statement published by D23, the official Disney fan club.
“Minnie has always had a special place in my heart. We share the same values. 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!”

She added, “I wanted Minnie to wear her very first pantsuit at Disneyland Paris, so I have designed one of my iconic costumes — a blue tuxedo — using responsibly sourced fabrics.
“This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation.”
Visitors at Disneyland Paris will be able to see Minnie model McCartney’s design.
However, not everybody is a fan.
“I’m sorry (not) but this is absolutely hideous. Horrible. Not even remotely gorgeous,” one person tweeted.
Another added, “I wouldn’t even wear this. It’s not that you changed her dress. It’s not even the change of colour. It’s the whole thing overall. It’s bad.”
Here’s what Clairsy & Lisa thought of the change….
