Hollywood make-believe was in full force when the Disney character was given the honour on Monday, 40 years after her cartoon-counterpart Mickey. CEO Bob Iger was the first to say a few words about the beloved mouse.

Disney officials and pop star Katy Perry will unveil the star honoring the animated character.

"Her style is the epitome of fun fashion, trust", Perry said at the ceremony.

"Maybe he was more popular back in the day", she said.


It took Minnie four decades longer than her boyfriend to receive the same accolade because Disney only nominated her a year ago, she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation by phone. He continued to say that although Minnie is famous for often playing the damsel in distress and being rescued by Mickey, Minnie can hold her own in any situation.

As for Heidi, she chose black polka dots in contrast to Minnie's trademark red shade, which she accessorized with a mouse ear headband. She will be honored for over 90 years in the motion picture business.

Mickey might be her main mouse, but Minnie still loves her girls. No matter where Perry goes in the world - whether it be Anaheim, Orlando, Paris or Tokyo - it's always so comforting to see Minnie's face, she said.

The Walt Disney Company chief executive Robert Iger celebrated the mouse as a "fashionista" who brings joy to many.
