Yoyo Cao

Founder, Exhibit Store. Rio de Janiero

While in some circles being a repeat offender could be considered a fashion faux pas, here at The Coveteur HQ being a repeat offender means being so fun and fabulous, we just have to feature you twice. All the better when that means shooting with one of our favourite Cov alums—Yoyo Cao (you may remember her from this Vuitton Palm Springs adventure) in yet another exotic locale. While some elements were the same—hot weather, iconic architecture, Ghesquiere's genius oozing from every look—this time, instead of wandering the desert we got to dive head first into Cao's closet full of Vuitton.

Since we're old pals, Yoyo was kind enough to let us document her getting ready for Vuitton's Cruise show at her hotel in Rio. While she was getting glam, with her back conveniently turned to us, we took it upon ourselves to ransack her stash. Leather jackets, creepers, bags in every shape and size and epic clothes made our job pretty easy.

Ever the gracious host, Cao then led us up to her roof where we got sprawling views of Ipanema beach. And in case you didn't know, *THAT* white dress + beach views = photographic gold. We’re crossing our fingers that the next time we meet this repeat offender it will be in her house in Singapore. If this shoot was any indication of what's in store, we cannot wait to get our hands on that closet.
