Minnie Mouse’s Anniversary Pantsuit Design

Published on January 27th, 2022 | Updated on January 27th, 2022 | By FanFest

Minnie Mouse is preparing to wear a pantsuit in celebration of Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary. Stella McCartney’s design for the iconic character has hit a nerve with the public. However, it should be noted that this is a one-time event and will revert to the traditional design both within and outside of parks. That didn’t stop a plethora of platforms from talking about this navy blue business casual look 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is a change from her signature dress and bow, which feature red and white polka dots. In reality, the pantsuit inverts that color scheme by adding navy and black polka dots. Disneyland collaborated with the designer for the anniversary celebration, and gave final approval on the temporary modifications. Check out what Paul McCartney told People below.

“I am delighted to be working with the one, the only, the iconic Minnie Mouse,” McCartney wrote in a statement before adding, “always had a special place in my heart. 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!”

“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,” McCartney added. “This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation. 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!”

Tyler Slater, a Disney public relations executive for Experience & Products, said “In honor of National Polka Dot Day, the annual fan holiday honoring Minnie Mouse, @MinnieStyle is hosting virtual sessions – think of them as Minnie moments – on Instagram inspired by our favorite lifestyle muse! Led by talent who encompass her fashionable, fun and bold personality, this Minnie-inspired activation will kick off on Monday, Jan. 31st and end Friday, Feb. 4th, 2022.”

“Presented by @MinnieStyle, the event will showcase what it means to be ‘Positively Minnie’ through fun and uplifting programming that will leave participants feeling inspired,” Slater stated “Each day, get ready for inspiring guests who will co-host a series of 10-15 minute sessions on a variety of topics such as careers, friendship and body positivity for a retreat from your day. Audiences around the world can tune in on Instagram starting at 10 a.m. PT to join the conversation live. Daily replays will also be available on @MinnieStyle following each session!”
