The debut of Minnie Mouse's first-ever pantsuit has prompted many people on social media to criticize the character's new fit.
On Tuesday, Disneyland Paris announced Minnie was temporarily ditching her iconic red-and-white polka dot dress in honor of Disneyland Paris' 30th anniversary. She will also wear it in honor of Women’s History Month this March.
Minnie will instead sport a navy blue pantsuit with black polka dots and her signature bow created by British fashion designer Stella McCartney.
“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 said in a statement published by D23, the official Disney fan club.
"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."
The look generated discussion on social media, with some saying the pantsuit was unflattering.
"Ugly and I hate it," one Twitter user wrote.
Others complimented the idea, but thought it could have been a cuter design.
"the idea of the pantsuit is so cute, but we gotta have the iconic Minnie Mouse colors to go with it!" wrote another Twitter user.
Some pointed out that the navy blue matched the anniversary colors, and also aligned with what Minnie typically wears in Disneyland Paris.
Minnie's makeover news comes just a week after Mars Inc., M&M's parent company, announced that the beloved M&M characters were redesigned to become more "inclusive" — prompting many on social media to call for the return of the more classic "hot" anthropomorphized candy characters.
