Designer Collabs That Should Be Real: Kiddie Cartoon Edition

We've already shown you our dream movie/style mash-ups and shared the brands we think would work swimmingly together—but for this round of Designer Collabs That Should Be Real, we're getting animated.

As children, our cartoon TV series of choice—My Little Pony, Care Bears—informed our lunch box selections, sticker collections and, yes, clothing purchases. So we went a step further and paired our favorite kiddie characters with some of the coolest brands and stores out there. They may be the television toons of our youth, after all, but they're just as cool today. Click through for some serious nostalgia.

Jem and the Holograms for MAC

While brainstorming ideas for this story, we were actually shocked MAC hadn't tapped Jem (née Jerrica), Kimber, Aja and Shana for a collab yet. After all, their beauty looks were a major highlight of the series—think pink eyeshadow, bright lip gloss and some truly crazy contouring. Oh, and just imagine the nail possibilities. Who's down for a holographic mani?
