Minnie may have seemed to shed quite a few pounds, and has been stretched to every centimeter of a standard 5’11 supermodel, but hey, she’s wearing a couture frock animated by Lanvin.
Barney’s New York and Disney’s new collaboration has come under fire in the past couple of months, when the first images were released of Minnie’s new slender physique for an animated film to promote the Christmas season at the department store. A Disney cartoon morphed in to a fashion film is yet another way to satisfy the insatiable fashion world, (now that the allure of Anna Dello Russo’s hilarious filmclip for H&M has worn off. See that below).
The ‘Electric Holiday’ campaign has just been unveiled at Barney’s New York, complete with gorgeous decorated windows. And despite the controversy over Minnie’s size, the launch party went off without a hitch on Wednesday night. Sarah Jessica Parker, never missing a fashion/ PR opportunity, was clad in Maison Michel-esque Minnie ear’s for the launch on Wednesday with Barney’s CEO Mark Lee and Disney CEO Bob Iger.
In the film, Minnie emerges from her castle and daydreams about getting street-papped along the way to Paris fashion week (as you do), before meeting her very exclusive fashion friends as she goes. Have a look at the link below:
