    Among the pantheon of cult fashion favorites when it comes to TV and entertainment are such hits as "Clueless," Robert Altman's "Pret-a-Porter," and almost every Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly movie ever made. But one of the most beloved classics is undoubtedly the British TV comedy "Absolutely Fabulous" -- "AbFab" for short -- which starred the fashion and celebrity-obsessed duo Patsy (Joanna Lumley) and Edina (Jennifer Saunders).

    In welcome news for fans of the show, "AbFab" will be returning to the air just in time for the holidays in the form of three special episodes, and The Telegraph reports that Edina and Patsy will have some impressive co-stars like designer Stella McCartney and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton.

    All we know about Stella's one-off turn in the hit TV show is that it involves Edina and Patsy taking a trip to the Stella store, and somewhere in the mix, Olympic gold-medal winner Dame Kelly Holmes features, too.

    Official show dates have yet to be announced, but the three specials should debut in time for a welcome break for sappier holiday standbys on TV.
