Sorry, to be clear, I don't think the CSS WG logo is really suitable 
here (it would look bad as a single color, for one thing).

I looked a bit on Google images, and found no suitable icon for CSS. 
Seb, I suggest you just add something that implies "style" to you.

Here's my terrible idea... an italic "CSS" made of brackets:

{ { {
    } }

So, we are thinking about it internally, but don't hold your breath.
