(FashionCartoons) The cartoon child version of Anna Wintour
If you've ever wondered whether baby Anna Wintour ever showed early signs of world fashion domination, or whether infant Suzy Menkes sported a pre-pouf cowlick... well, join the club! An anonymous professional cartoonist has taken to the internet with speculative depictions of what s/he imagines the fashion industry's top grown-up personalities were like—as children.
There's a domineering pre-editrix cartoon Wintour demanding to sit front-row at a puppet show, baby Karl Lagerfeld being very precocious, Terry Richardson getting naked, and a child version of Miuccia Prada espousing an early version of her ugly-chic sensibilities.
As for the creator? S/he prefers to remain anonymous.
"I'm a professional in the industry, so inspiration is really all around me every single day," the blogger told Stylecaster. "When people have such creativity, attitude, genius... I really believe it must have shown somehow when they were kids. And so I try to imagine how they could have been."
