"This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation"
Minnie Mouse is trading in her iconic red and white dots for something a little more chic!
On Tuesday January 25, Disneyland Paris announced that the mouse would be getting a wardrobe change in time for the celebration of its 30th anniversary.
The new outfit was designed by British designer Stella McCartney and will feature Minnie in a dark blue pantsuit with black stripes and polka dots. Her signature bow will follow the same color scheme and overall design of the tuxedo.

"I am delighted to be working with the one, the only, the iconic Minnie Mouse," McCartney said in a statement. "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!"
The designer also noted that Minnie's blue tuxedo would be made using responsibly sourced fabrics and detailed her decision to have the iconic mouse wear pants for the first time.
"This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation," McCartney stated and added that the mouse will honor Women’s History Month in addition to the park’s 30th anniversary. "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!"
