Yoyo Cao is a force to be reckoned with.
The fashion world's darling and girl-of-the-moment is all over the covers of magazines, a fixture at every relevant fashion event, and spotted front row & centre at all the major runway shows from Paris and Milan to New York. Her petite frame commands an undeniably strong presence, and her chameleon-like ability to transform pieces from different brands and channel them into her own distinct looks is second to none. For those who cannot get enough of this relentless trendsetter, Yoyo shares her passion for fashion as well as her take on beauty and lifestyle via her highly-curated website, yoyokulala.com, while also infusing her personal style into her own fashion label, Exhibit.
Here, we have Yoyo styling her favorite pieces from ARISSA X while she tells us about herself in a series of quick-fire questions.
