Ever wonder wondered what the stars of the fashion world were like when they were children. Did Anna Wintour only wear designer baby-gros? Did Ralph Lauren live the American Dream? While we can’t go back in time to see the famous faces as babies, Fashion Cartoonist has created a series of hilarious and adorable images that might give you an idea.
