New Minnie Mouse is Creepy-Skinny

So, apparently Forever 21 and Disney are partnering to make a new line of clothing and stuff and they’ve given Minnie Mouse a horrific makeover.  They claim this new look is stylish, glamorous, and modern but I just see her new body and think she’s got a serious eating disorder problem.

 

I obviously have issues with the design. I think it promotes unrealistic (to the extreme!) body types. Also, they’ve turned Minnie into this thing that doesn’t even vaguely resemble a mouse anymore.

Anyway, this person has a better article about it than I do:

    Someone replied to that article saying that Miss Piggy is billed as fashionable without being a stick-figure. I saw an original statement from someone who designed one of the new Minnie’s and he/she said Minnie’s figure wasn’t compatible with high fashion. First of all, Forever 21? Really? The girl with the dog pulling her underpants on the sunscreen bottles is more high fashion than Forever 21. Second, I think if you can design for Miss Piggy or Oprah Winfrey or Kiera Knightly hen you can design for Minnie Mouse. Good design is about designing to suit, not the other way around.

    I agree also. Does this mean shorter, full figured women aren’t fashionable? I find that VERY hard to believe! Come on Disney, even Olive Oil had more body fat than “new Minnie.”
