The Monsoon calls for something fun, something that livens up any outfit. I’m absolutely loving statement bags and clutches, and when I say statement – I mean bags and clutches with actual statements on them.

The Luggage and Business Essentials brand has a very fun project every year where they invite designers to design a tote. This Edie Parker one has to be my favorite one!

Let the Glamour Games begin!

Ever wanted to play Pictionary with Gigi Hadid ? Well, you probably won’t get the chance, but you can live vicariously through Micheal Kors  in this clip, who recently played the game with the stunning supermodel!

Let the games begin!

The 20-year-old beauty and the 55-year-old fashion designer sat down together for the very first Glamour Games, during which the two (who are actually quite in sync) answered various questions about food, fashion, music, movies and more.

Micheal showing off his skills

 

The glamourous pair asked each other a series of questions which had to be answered by drawing a picture.

So what did we find out? Well, we learn about the duo’s style icons, their favourite inventions and what they think their best features are.

We also discovered that Gigi is a girl after our own heart; the model surprisingly admitted that the one thing that can always cheer her up is a cheeseburger. She even convinces Michael to take her out for one…if she wins!

Biggest takeaway from the clip? The Sports Illustrated stunner is a big fan of carbs (not fair with that bod!).
