SLEEK FORD Tom It started with the turkey dinner last weekend and, fueled by leftover stuffing, cookies, and eggnog, continues into next year—the all-American binge fest known as the Holiday Season. But don't feel bad. According to the new Daily MINI, everyone's pigging out, including Tom Ford, Iman, and even the human Barbie doll Donatella Versace. (And when the fashion gods speak of their caloric excess, the plebes must listen!)

Designer Betsey Johnson admittedly triples her eating and drinking in December and stays "tired and fat" all through January. Her advice: "Who the fuck cares? Just wear lots of sweaters!"

But don't tell that to fashion sex symbol Tom Ford. His idea of holiday debauchery is having two vodka tonics instead of one (that's 200 calories each, ladies and gentlemen). After that he resorts to eating veggies and playing tennis every day at 7 a.m. An "extra glass of champagne" is the caloric sin of choice for the Italian party-queen Donatella Versace as well. (Taking the 12-step program literally is really passé right now). Her weight-loss trick: "Go somewhere you can dance all night long!"

Anti-anorexic model activist Michael Kors never eats at the party. His method: "Do the liquid diet at the party with your cocktails, and then do a cheeseburger at home where you can control your portions."

David Bowie's model wife Iman, however, is against any kind of food deprivation during the holidays: "I say go for it—then starve yourself!"

If these useful tips and tricks don't work, don't despair—there's always mega-liposuction!
