*I don't own this fashion NRFB so I can't say which, if any posters and inserts originally came with it.  Bold listings are those I have used to create this ID page.  Anything in Italics I haven't actually seen but have good reason to believe exists.  If you have any photos or information/corrections to share, I'd love to hear about it!

1987 Hasbro Box Photo #1, see top of page, same photo is used on the backs of the 1987 Flip Side Fashion boxes, 1987 US Hasbro Toy Fair Catalogue (though Jem & Jerrica have been manipulated to be standing reversed), 1987 France & UK Toy Fair Catalogue and the 1987 Jem catalogue poster) looks like the produced version.
1987 Hasbro Box Photo #2, from We Can Change It box front - appears to be the same outfit as Photo #1, in different poses.
Topolino It was featured in an issue of Topolino.
Illustrations: Cartoon  It did appear on the cartoon. Jerrica's side (er... worn by Jem!) much earlier than the Jem's (which ended up on Shana!).
On the cartoon, Jem doesn't wear the "hood" of the cloche; she wears the "Jem" side gloves. Not included in Hasbro's fashion is the bracelets and socks.
