Minnie's makeover is to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Disneyland Paris. The theme park shared a snap of the icon in her first pantsuit, which is blue with black polka dots

“I am delighted to be working with the one, the only, the iconic Minnie Mouse,” McCartney told D23, the official Disney fan club. “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," McCartney added. "This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation."

While its unclear if Minnie's new look is permanent, visitors to Disneyland Paris will see the character wearing the outfit this spring.

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

Disneyland Paris also released a video highlighting other looks on Mickey and Minnie, in celebration of the park’s upcoming anniversary.

Disneyland Paris opened on April 12, 1992, and has since had more than 375 million visitors, according to Fox News.
