Minnie Mouse turns model for Barneys
The long-awaited Disney & Barneys New York Christmas collaboration has finally arrived! We've seen some sneak peeks of this five minute animation over the last few weeks, but now is your chance to see the full story. 'Electric Holiday' is a ridiculously cute look at Minnie Mouse's fashion dreams. The Disney legend imagines what it would be like to spend a day as a fashionista in Paris - encountering the likes of Steven Meisel, SJP, Lady Gaga, Anna Dello Russo and Daphne Guinness along the way.
Original images of a slimmed-down Minnie Mouse with model proportions had some people up in arms, but we're happy to see the moral of this story is that Minnie is happy just the way she is (with a bit of help from an adorable cartoon Alber Elbaz and Mickey's obviously bulging wallet). The use of statuesque reworkings of Disney characters feels a lot more tongue in cheek than we originally expected.
Funnily enough, Cruella De Vil looks exactly the same as normal...
