PARIS (WJZY) — After 93 years of entertaining the world alongside her darling Mickey, Minnie Mouse is ditching her iconic dress and opting for something more modern.

In honor of Disneyland Paris’ 30th anniversary, which falls on Women’s History Month in March, the character will unveil her new look designed by Stella McCartney, daughter of singer-songwriter Paul McCartney.

In an artist’s rendering, Minnie wears a dark blue and black polka dot pantsuit with a matching bow. Disneyland Paris debuted her new look on their Twitter account on Tuesday.

In an interview with D23, The Official Disney Fan Club, McCartney called Minnie’s new outfit “a symbol of progress for a new generation.”

“I’m thrilled to be working with the one, only, iconic Minnie Mouse,” McCartney said. “I designed a bespoke outfit for her to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Disneyland Paris. 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 inspires people of all ages around the world. Plus, she’s got so much style!”
