MADE IN THE SHADE Allen is in preproduction for ''Santa''

We'd just like to point out that Julia and Gwyneth are total copycats -- the real fat-suit trendsetter is Tim Allen, who seems quite taken by his costume: The actor has dropped out of Universal's Dr. Seuss project, ''The Cat in the Hat,'' saying he wants to pay full attention to ''The Santa Clause II,'' which is now in preproduction. ''I couldn't do two icons,'' explains Allen, calming our fears about his career choice – ''Grinch'' made $260 million, ''Clause'' a mere $145 million -- by adding that ''Clause'' will now be going ''to the North Pole in a really big way.''
