Gareth Pugh, Cindy Sherman, and now Daphne Guinness? MAC never ceases to amaze us with its genius, outside-of-the-box partnerships.

According to Womens Wear Daily, we’ll be able to get our hands on Guinness’s line of  “rich, seasonal hues” on December 26, but in the meantime we’re busy dreaming up some other high-profile pairings for the beauty brand.

After all, if they can get Wonder Woman, the sky’s the limit, right?

So, without further ado ...

MAC Collaborations We’d Love to See:

Josie and the Pussycats: Easily the best animated girl group in history (sorry, Jem and the Holograms), this kittenish trio could inspire a series of leopard-print shadows and blushes. Another must? A wicked mascara to help us achieve Josie’s, Valerie’s, and Melody’s wide-eyed gazes.

Justin Bieber: The baby-faced pop star has already taken the nail polish and fragrance worlds by storm, and there’s no doubt that his legions of screaming fans would only be too happy to raid the mall in search of Bieber-branded cosmetics. A tween-friendly line of soft pastel shadows and glosses, perhaps emblazoned with the Biebs’ mug, could be just the ticket.

Victoria Beckham: Her dresses (and hot husband) are already on our Must-Have list. Why not add a selection of warm bronzers, shimmering nude shadows, and lip-plumping glosses in caramel? Another must? A discreet little compact to conceal the rare, impulsive smile.

David Bowie: Or, more accurately, Ziggy Stardust. Decades before the word “guyliner” crossed our lips, Bowie taught us that men could have fun with a bit of makeup too. A unisex range of sparkly slap would no doubt be a hit with the cosmetic company’s progressive fan base.

Marc Jacobs: Whether he’s headed to Dior or not, it’s about time Marc branched out to cosmetics. We’re thinking playful splashes of color, whimsical polka dot-splashed cases, and lipsticks designed to look like his signature lipstick pens. And, fingers crossed, a campaign starring one of his favorite Fanning sisters?

Diet Coke: Memo to Karl Lagerfeld: Designer bottles are all well and good, but it’s time to up the ante with a makeup collection referencing the fashion crowd’s beverage of choice. Cola-colored shades of brown shadows and liners, bubbly gloss that mimics the carbonation ... just talking about it it makes us feel all warm and “fizzy” inside.

Grace Coddington: Our scarlet fever knows no bounds, and playing muse is old hat to the flame-haired Vogue creative director. Consider this a formal request for Coddington’s signature red lipstick, a brow pencil for her ultra-fine arches, and a fiery collection of intense orange and red lippies and shadows. We can just imagine what sort of mind-blowing fashion imagery the style icon would source for her packaging.

Apple: Mac, meet MAC. We’d happily swear off PCs forever if it meant getting our paws on a geek-chic collection based on Apple’s sleek and innovative design. Once the iPhone 5 is out, perhaps Silicon Valley can get to work on a line of clear lipglosses, minimalist powders and foundations, and black and white shadow palettes encased in handheld-inspired packaging? Bonus points for releasing a companion app with makeup tutorials.

Carine Roitfeld: Since departing Vogue Paris, the trés chic editrix has been keeping busy with projects for V, Barneys New York, and David Webb. But think she’d find room in her schedule to whip up a fab little collection of smokey eyeshadows, smudge-ready liners, bronzer, and pencils designed to achieve her full, perfectly untamed brows. The packaging? Sexy, slim, and black, of course.

And see who’d be designing couture if we had our way.
