Minnie Debuts Unchanged in Electric Holiday Campaign for Barneys
Nov 12, 2012 - by Emily Draznik
Responding to protests from plus sized models and eating disorder activists, Minnie Mouse remains unchanged in this preview of Barneys New York Electric Holiday campaign featuring other fashion industry execs as cartoons.
This morning, Women's Wear Daily showed us a preview of the Electric Holiday campaign featuring Minnie Mouse and other Disney characters at a fictionalized Paris Fashion Week. Although, we couldn't help but notice Minnie's traditional depiction as opposed to the preview image that Barneys released a few months back. With her height and frame back to normal, we can only assume this alteration is due to the controversy that surrounded the slenderizing of Minnie's image.
Featuring sneak peeks of other toonified fashion industry professionals such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Naomi Campbell, Daphne Guinness, Steven Meisel, Cathy Horyn, and Lady Gaga, the campaign looks to have achieved its initial intention of creating a light-hearted fashionable take on Disney. Flip through the rest of the preview images for Electric Holiday below and share with us if you approve of the changes Barneys made.
