Famous fashion names get Disney makover for Barneys Christmas campaign

Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker and Naomi Campbell have been given a cartoon makeover by Disney, in a colourful new Christmas campaign for US store Barneys.


The trio star in a short film called Electric Holiday, created by Disney to be shown at Barneys' Madison Avenue store in New York.

The 30 second-long festive clip, which stars a host of other famous fashion faces, begins with Minnie Mouse, admiring a beautiful Lanvin dress, before being transported to a fabulous fashion show.

And who should be in the audience, but Daphne Guinness, Carine Roitfeld and Naomi Campbell?

After taking part in the show, Minnie returns home, but still in her dress, designed for her by Lanvin's Alber Elbaz.

Who knew she was so high fashion?

Mark Lee, Barneys CEO explained of the campaign: 'Disney came up on a very short list of dreams - thinking about if we could do anything, what would we do?

'They represent magic and Barneys New York holiday needs to be part magic and part surprise.'

Luis Fernandez, senior vice president of creative for Disney Consumer Products, added: 'We thought, "A huge force in fashion and a huge force in animation. What better than for these two companies to get together and do something for the holidays?"'
