Up-and-coming tastemakers Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia have seen their ready-to-wear line take the retail scene by storm since its Resort 2009 launch; and just in time for the holiday season, Babi is sharing style tips with the brand's fans. SachinandBabi.com's new S+B Style Notes feature, which was masterminded with Maryellen Gordon's Stable of Content consulting biz and art director Garrett Yankou, is full of ways to survive the holiday season. For example: "Settle on one small token of appreciation to bring to every holiday party," says Babi. "Make it a set of glass coasters and a creystal cut wine stopper (my fave!) or a sweet frame, scented candle, an ornament from MOMA...you get it. Buy multiples and you'll never have 'I forgot a gift!' panic again."

Maybe it's the dents, but Joe Zee is looking better than ever on his (cough, cough) birthday. What better way to toast Elle's creative director than by revisiting Chic's favorite Zee-isms?

November 22, 2010, Twitter:
"I should be writing and working but instead I'm flipping through online slideshows of Kate Middleton. #ILoveAPrincess"

November 20, 2010, Twitter:
“Is it me or is there more frenzy and insanity over the @hm Lanvin sale today than the Harry Potter opening? Ruffles over wizards in 2010.”

September 13, 2010, The Daily:
“I'll let Prabal have the Twitter crown. I'm so bad lately; I do all my writing in clumps when I have time. So you get clumps or nothing!”

July 7, 2010, Facebook:
“No email or phone for the next 17 hours. I may need a valium to handle that. Ok, check.”

May 21, 2010, Facebook:
“Big morning. Getting sworn in and becoming an official American! Only took 20 years - talk about being fashionably late.”

April 22, 2010, Facebook:
“Boarding a plane on Earth Day feels a tad hypocritical. But how else am I going to get across the country? Please don't judge me. Happy Earth Day!”

February 23, Facebook:
“Crazy lady with a feather in her hair (I swear it's Judy Tenuta) just crashed into front row with us. She was thrown out of course.”

"Shiloh found a dead bird, so she came in and said, ‘Can I have a dead pet?’ And I’m . . . ‘Uh-uh, I don’t think it’s healthy, honey. I think they have to put him in a box,’ and I had to run out to find, like, a taxidermy bird. I just worked it out for her."---Angelina Jolie in the December issue of Vogue
