Integrity Toys Starstruck Jem Integrity created a version of this fashion. The The Integrity tights are also not white either, but teal, similar to the turquoise of the Hasbro fashion, but matte instead of sparkly. They met in the middle by giving her ankle boots like the Hasbro fashion, but gold like the cartoon instead of aqua. The Integrity top and skirt have gold and teal tones; the Hasbro version went more of a broze and turquoise direction. Integrity also chose to make the scarf teal instead of white in the same material as the top, rather than a new material. Integrity's skirt is not a wrap skirt. Integrity accessorized the fashion with gold cuff bracelets, and included a trophy and microphone instead of a guitar. Lastly, Integrity's version was included on a doll, rather than a stand alone fashion.

Illustrations: Cartoon (original model sheet shown left) She wears white tights and gold pumps with this fashion in the cartoon, not turquoise tights and ankle boots like the dolls' produced fashion.The headband is shown to be white, not turquoise. As far as I know, the guitar didn't appear on the cartoon. To me, the cartoon version looks more yellowy gold, the fashion is actually more of a copper shade. Shown left is a modified version of the original model cel, which can be viewed on Felicity-Chan's cel gallery.
