Minnie Mouse is getting a makeover in celebration of Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary, ditching her famous red and white polka-dot dress for something more chic: a navy blue and black polka-dot pantsuit.

Minnie’s new look was designed by Stella McCartney specifically for the anniversary celebrations, and features Minnie wearing a blazer and trousers. Her famous bow was also changed to match her new outfit, which is much more fashion-forward and in honor of Women’s History Month.

Speaking with D23, McCartney said:

“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!

“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. She will wear it in honor of Women’s History Month, in March 2022. I can’t wait to see this new look at Walt Disney Studios Park!”

Disney fans have taken to social media to share their thoughts about Minnie’s updated look, with many praising McCartney for reimagining the character in a more modern way. There are others, however, who have shared their criticisms of the outfit.

Minnie isn’t the only one to receive a new look for the 30th-anniversary celebrations, nor is this her only new outfit. In a promotional video shared to Disneyland Paris’ YouTube channel, the characters we know and love – including Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy – are decked out in reflective, holographic dress clothes, which are perfect for a celebration!
