Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet Eisner joins Chic Report as our weekly parenting columnist. First up: the mother of 2-year old Eloise tackles basics!

STACEY ON...TAKING TURNS: "I learned this from Eloise’s teacher as a brilliant alternative to sharing. It’s a more tangible concept for a child. Although a few weeks ago, Eloise pointed to my diamond ring and said, 'Mommy! Mine!' I said, 'No, that is mommy’s ring.' And Eloise said, 'Ok, Mommy, take turns. Eloise turn!' The concept really works, but maybe stick to using it with toys."
STACEY ON...FLEXIBILITY: "The other morning, Eloise wanted ice cream for breakfast. And I kept saying no, and then suddenly I thought, you know what, I want ice cream for breakfast, too.  So we had ice cream for breakfast."
STACEY ON...EATING ORGANIC: "I try my best to buy lotus spring pajamas and bananas only from Whole Foods. But when you think back, our generation wore flammable pajamas with plastic feet and ate Rice Krispie snacks and McDonald's, and used totally toxic magic markers, and we are still alive."
STACEY ON...CREATIVITY: "Clothes are a form of expression. It's like toddler art—one of the first creative opinions a child gets to have.  So while sometimes the pink crocs with Tinkerbell charms and the purple Lakers shirt (I have no idea where this even came from!!) make me physically ill wondering if my child is channeling Punky Brewster as her fashion idol, if it's what she wants to wear, I just go with it."
STACEY ON...FURRY FRIENDS: "I am for them. I mean, I am definitely looking for a new home for our adopted hamrat Wilson Browning St. Clair (any takers?), and when we got one of those running balls, Eloise did throw it (with Wilson inside) across the room and scream 'Wilson Football!' but every toddler who comes into our apartment runs straight for the cage with total excitement. The hamrat is NYC nature."

Look of The Daily: Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

Angelina Jolie's red-carpet preferences tend to lean towards the draped and the languid. The Atelier Versace gown she wore to the world premiere of The Tourist at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York on December 6, 2010 looks fairly basic, silhouette-wise, but given that it's made of white angora, it takes the sweaterdressing concept up a notch. She paired the gown with Salvatore Ferragamo pumps. Kind of perfect for a December premiere, right?

Rebecca Minkoff Takes Turkey

Designer Rebecca Minkoff adores to travel the world, so we’ve asked her to write a weekly column to share her adventures and favorite destinations. Behold the first installment! Also check out the gallery for more vacation pics.

Maybe it’s because my Thanksgiving leftovers have dwindled to me licking the Tupperware, but I'm feeling nostalgic for turkey, and not just the edible kind. I recently decided I had earned a vacation---a real one, not a trip to California to sign bags at a department store.  Fulfilling a lifelong dream, I set sail off the coast of Bodrum for a week at sea with my husband and four of my dearest friends.  I take my vacations seriously – all watches and Blackberrys were traded in for gossip mags and cocktails with umbrellas.
