How he did it: One word: Oprah. ALT went on the Queen of Daytime’s talk show (may it rest) to begin his journey of weight loss and self-discovery (it is Oprah after all). Though he did shed a few pounds at Duke’s Diet & Fitness Center, ALT gained much of it back. Luckily, his couture capes were ready to receive him sans judgement. And as anyone who saw The September Issue knows, ALT also plays tennis (in Louis Vuitton, natch) to stay healthy.
