Vanessa Hudgens Loves Channeling Minnie Mouse — And So Can You With These Affordable Dupes!
Shop Story

Happy Birthday to Minnie Mouse! The beloved Disney character just turned 91. To celebrate the impressive milestone, clothing lines are releasing new Minnie-themed products. Partners include popular brands from Kate Spade to UNIQLO. The collections are daring and bold. They’re designed for Disney-loving trendsetters!


Vanessa Hudgens modeled Minnie-inspired outfits in a special holiday edition of Who What Wear. The campaign featured mostly black clothing, with pops of red, white and purple. Vanessa wore polka dot tights with skirts and dresses. Combat boots and chokers added edge to her outfits. She kept her makeup simple, with glowy cheeks, lengthy lashes and a nude lip.


Vanessa and Minnie have more in common than you might think. Both personas share style sensibilities. It wasn’t always this way. Vanessa used to be known for her Coachella-inspired outfits. She loved maxi dresses, feather earrings and beachy waves. But the star grew up, leaving behind her bohemian fashion. Vanessa lives in New York now. She favors classic designs with pops of personality, according to Who What Wear. A statement belt jazzes up an all-black ensemble. Padded shoulders enliven an otherwise subdued silhouette. Like Minnie, Vanessa steps out in timeless outfits. “I love an iconic look,” she told Who What Wear.


The clothes in the campaign are gorgeous, but they veer on the pricey side. We rounded up affordable versions of Vanessa’s Minnie-inspired outfits. These styles are worthy of the stars. Look fabulous without breaking your budget!
