Winning an Academy Award is definitely a good reason to splurge!

Sam Smith – who won the Oscar for Best Original Song on Sunday – took a break from his usually healthy eating habits to indulge in pizza, beer and shots after the ceremony.

“I have been eating the most boring food you can imagine for months now, and I’m going to destroy some burgers and chocolate cakes in a second – and some beer,” Smith – who even went for a jog Oscar morning – told PEOPLE in the press room. “You have no idea!”

The singer, 23, followed through with his plans at a private party at his house attended by co-winner Jimmy Napes, his mom, dad, sisters, managers and close friends following the show.

“They ordered a bunch of pizza and were all taking shots and sipping on Heineken beers,” says a source. “Sam was dancing around with a bunch of his girlfriends, just celebrating and having a great time.”

Smith revealed in September that he had lost a total of 50 lbs.

“My relationship with food has just completely changed,” he told Today at the time.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Why are his pants to short in the picture? That’s not the style is it? If it is, I don’t like it. He looks like he’s in a rented tux.
