When Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert head to Lindale, TX for Christmas this year, there’s one dish Lambert’s mom will certainly have ready: party dip.

“I like any kind of dip,” Shelton tells PEOPLE at JCPenney’s Jingle Mingle Live event in N.Y.C, where Shelton sang some of his favorite holiday songs with the USO Choir. “Anything that you can dip a chip in—ranch, cheese, salsa—and [Miranda’s] mom knows that so there’s always like six different kinds of dip.”

He’s even figured out the art of keeping all the deliciousness to himself: “I found out if you double dip, then other people stay out of it.”

The country power-couple split their holidays between Lambert’s hometown in Texas and Shelton’s family base in Oklahoma. For Shelton, it’s a time of year he looks forward to. “[There’s] no pressure, no thinking, just hanging out and having fun.”

As for what he would like to find in his stocking on Christmas morning, The Voice judge is simple to please: “Cash, I like cash.”

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.
