Mickey Mouse is being celebrated by the fashion greats in his own stylish way.
Long gone are the days when the iconic mouse was only for children. After 90 years, Mickey has been elevated to a new standard where fashion greats like Karl Lagerfeld and Virgil Abloh, as well as Gigi and Bella Hadid, are showcasing the character like never before.
The Hadid sisters, along with models Karen Elson, Shenelle Williams, Cara Taylor and Vittoria Cerreti, appear on six different covers of CHAOS Magazine and Disney's special edition issue "True Originals" that celebrates the iconic Mouse's 90th birthday through the lens of style and design.
"My sister and I would always run to see Mickey and Minnie first at Disneyland," Bella expressed in a statement. "Happiest birthday, Mickey. I love you!”
The brunette beauty's cover is a true piece of art, showing a black-and-white headshot of Bella with wire twisted to resemble Mickey's face.
The issue, available Dec. 3, is packed with unique artwork from Lagerfeld and Abloh, as well as the models in Mickey-inspired collections from brands like Levi’s, Rag + Bone, Lacoste, Forever 21 and Marc Jacobs. These photo shoots show that the beloved character is perfect for all ages and fashionistas who can take these styles from streetwear to evening wear.
The special edition magazine will be available in boutique newsstands and select fashion destinations in Paris, Milan, L.A., London and New York, including the gift shop of “Mickey: The True Original Exhibition,” which runs through Feb. 10, 2019.
