Minnie Mouse has a new look but not everyone is happy about the makeover.
To honor Disneyland Paris’ 30th-anniversary Designer Stella McCartney created a brand new outfit for the iconic mouse, a blue and black polka-dotted pantsuit. While many are excited that Minnie is mixing things up, some people with ideas from the stone age balked at the idea of a fictional cartoon girl mouse wearing pants instead of a dress in 2022.
“This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation,” McCartney told People. “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!”

As far as I'm concerned, Minnie Mouse can wear a blue polka-dot pantsuit if she wants to.
I think it's a good look for her. pic.twitter.com/19t2v2OD8F

Others weren’t mad about the idea of the pantsuit, so much as they just didn’t think the pantsuit was worthy of the icon.
