Mickey Mouse, who has been dating Minnie for almost 100 years, may not recognize her new look.
Minnie, who was no Clarabelle Cow, is getting an even smaller dress size, according to a petition at Change.org. So far, 13,000 petition signers are not happy about it.
Mickey may want to look into purchasing elevator shoes and a sack of high-fat cheese wheels. His animated GF will now be 5-feet 11-inches tall and wear a size zero dress, which, according to women I work with, is really small.
The change is being made so Minnie will “look good” in a Lanvin dress in the Barneys NYC department store window this holiday season, according to the petition.
Unreported is Minnie’s original height and dress size.
The petition writer says girls are already under “tremendous pressure … to attain Photoshop perfection” and cites the following information from the non-profit National Association of Anorexia and Associated Eating Disorders website:
I’m no expert on animated fashion, but I think Minnie looked fine as originally drawn.
And she’s always known how to use a giant hair bow to conceal her humongous ears.
