Disney fans, rejoice! A new project from acclaimed photographer Gray Malin honors Minnie Mouse in all of her polka-dotted glory, and it’s here just in time for National Polka Dot Day on January 22nd.
The photo series, released Tuesday as part of Disney’s annual Minnie-centric #RocktheDots campaign, celebrates Minnie’s iconic red-and-white polka dot dress and her lasting impact on Hollywood and fashion worldwide. For the aerial photos, Malin staged an epic red carpet party — highlighting Hollywood’s most iconic landscape — and had guests carry white parasols to form large-scale polka dots.
The photos, along with Malin’s first ever video project, are a true delight and definitely capture Minnie’s fun-loving, spirited essence.
Watch Malin’s video piece below for a dynamic look at the polka-dotted red carpet.

“Minnie Mouse has helped make polka dots famous all over the world, and I am continually inspired by her impact on fashion and pop culture,” said Malin in a press release.
If you’re swooning over these photos, we’re not surprised. Malin counts A-listers including Demi Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Rihanna, and Lauren Conrad among his fans, so if you love this work you’re in good company.
Long live Minnie Mouse!
