So you know how there's that mystery person you always see on Pinterest with the coolest outfits and you have multiple photos of them on your style board. I noticed this stunning mystery woman was popping up on my feed and  I had to figure out who she was. This was much harder than I thought It would be but now that I think about it I could have used google image search. However, I did this the hard way and chose to scroll through Pinterest and hope her name would pop up underneath her images. It took much too long to learn this accomplished woman's name via Pinterest but eventually, it happened! (Please don't judge me for choosing to do this in the silliest way)

Yoyo Cao is the name of this mystery woman, a very unexpected but super cool name. I only felt worse about not knowing who she was once I learned more about her accomplishments. She has been named Singapore's biggest style star by Vogue and is the owner of a multi-label store Exhibit. She has worked with major brands such as Jimmy Choo and Bulgari. Lastly, her style is unforgettable. She pulls off outfits that most people would probably look crazy wearing. A large part of this is obviously the confidence which she exudes when in these outfits. Marjon Carlos writes about her in Vogue, "If ever you’ve seen a street style photograph of Singapore designer and fashion entrepreneur Yoyo Cao, then you’ll have noticed a certain deft ability to layer the impossible." Cao explains, "I think living in Singapore really trains you to master the art of layering in a way that is quite different from cities halfway across the world". She's a true master of layering and you can see this below in some of my favorite looks.
