Minnie Mouse sporting first pantsuit for Disneyland Paris

Nevertheless, it’s a significant moment for a character known as much for her bright dresses and big bows as her bubbly personality. 

In honor of Women’s History Month in March, Minnie will sport a navy blue pantsuit with black polka dots. (There is indeed a bow.) It was created by British fashion designer Stella McCartney, the daughter of Beatles legend Paul McCartney.

“Minnie has always had a special place in my heart,” McCartney said in a Disney news release. “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.”

Other Disney characters also will wear special outfits as part of the anniversary celebration. Disneyland Paris provided a sneak peek at some of them in a video released Wednesday.

As part of her collaboration with Disney, McCartney also will sell a unique Minnie Mouse T-shirt as part of International Women’s Rights Day. The shirt will be available in Stella stores and online March 8. 

McCartney also is launching a limited-edition product line inspired by the Disney movie “Fantasia” this spring.
