American Idol’s Katy Perry Honors Minnie Mouse Walk of Fame (VIDEO)

American Idol judge Katy Perry took a break from Hollywood Week at the Dolby theater yesterday (Jan 22) to help honor Disney’s Minnie Mouse. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce awarded the iconic animated character an official star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Special guest speakers also included Disney Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger.

“Minnie Mouse has been a star and a fashion icon since she first burst onto the scene in the groundbreaking animated classic, Steamboat Willie,” said Iger in a statement.  “The star of more than 70 movies during her illustrious career, Minnie has entertained millions of people around the world, touching hearts and bringing joy wherever she goes. We’re thrilled to see her cultural influence and many achievements recognized with her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

“Minnie embodies iconic. Her style is the epitome of fun fashion,” Katy added. “To this day, no one rocks a bow, the color red, or a polka dot quite like her. It is a special skill to bring joy to so many, and she does it with the effortless bat of an eyelash. I am delighted to be part of honoring Minnie and her magic with a star on the Walk of Fame.”

To celebrate Minnie’s milestone anniversary and National Polka Dot Day, a number of fashion collaborations are launching worldwide today, including a new special-edition Coach collection inspired by her iconic style. The 20-piece collection includes handbags, small leather goods, ready-to-wear and specialty items – all infusing signature Coach silhouettes reimagined with vintage-inspired Disney patches and Minnie Mouse’s favorite polka dots. Coach Creative Director, Stuart Vevers also designed a bespoke dress for Minnie, worn at a celebratory lunch immediately following the ceremony at Hollywood’s famed Chateau Marmont.

Check out photos featuring Katy paying homage to Minnie in her own colorful polka-dot ensemble.
