What's in a name? K. All clichés aside, in the case of Tess Yopp, there's a few inevitable truths that are part and parcel of a moniker like Yopp's. For instance, there's no way you're not destined to be a London-based fashion stylist and consultant with visions of '90s tears from The Face dancing in your head. Let's put it this way: there's no way you're going to end up as a tax accountant, you know? As Yopp put it, her foray into fashion styling more or less happened along those same lines. "I lived in Russia when 'a friend of a friend' came from London looking for a stylist for her shoot. She referred to me as a girl who dressed a little crazy and liked interesting clothing." Told ya so. And when we invaded her London flat just a few months ago, Yopp more than lived up to her namesake, bringing out a massive, over-stuffed rolling rack to the middle of her living room, filled with what was like a Rolodex of our favorite labels: Marques Almeida (Yopp does consulting work for them), Givenchy, Prada... You get the point. Oh, and just for the record? She's totally the type who has a story or anecdote behind every single piece—from the J.W. Anderson coat she nabbed at a sample sale to the Christopher Kane dress she snapped up in a treat-yo-self birthday moment (he's her favorite designer, BTW). While Yopp posed for her portraits in a pair of Dior sunglasses (they later ended up on a stuffed giraffe); we basically took over her entire backyard (not going to lie, there may have been a moment where we thought a pair of silver CHANEL ankle boots fell over the fence and into her neighbor's yard), propping her wardrobe amongst the shrubbery just so. After securing their safety, we said our goodbyes, grabbed our suitcases and jumped in an Uber to Heathrow. Fitting end to our trip across the pond, huh?
