Gigi Hadid had a fantastic 2015 and it looks like 2016 is shaping up to be just as fun.

The model will appear on MasterChef Celebrity Showdown, which airs Jan. 18 on Fox, where she’ll compete against fellow supermodel Devon Windsor — and PEOPLE has the exclusive clip.

In the video, Gordon Ramsay, who stands alongside fellow judge Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi, asks the 20-year-old: “Be honest, what’s more intimidating the fashion runways or the MasterChef kitchen?”

Hadid, who famously freaked out when she was chosen to walk in the 2015 Victoria’s Secret fashion show, replied: “Honestly, it’s this because I only get starstruck over chefs.”

And competing on her “favorite cooking show” isn’t just about having fun for the supermodel. She, along with Windsor and other celebs, will have the chance to win $25,000 for charity. Hadid’s charity of choosing? Global Lyme Alliance, in support of her mom, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, who is battling the disease.

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.

I was pretty sad when I got to the Namco Bandai booth however and found out they only brought their fighting games to be played there, which I didn’t bother to try. The Sony Play – Station Two is Sony’s second computer game console, the successor to the original Sony Play – Station, and the predecessor to the Sony Play – Station Three. You could give yourself some leisure time between classes or just within the break time, however are not in front of your TV.
