Earlier this year in May, in an event aptly named JET-A-PORTER, luxury online retailer NET-A-PORTER whisked away models, designers and friends of the brand to the ultimate seaside retreat on the Peloponnese Coast on Greece. It was in partnership with Australian fashion brand Zimmerman to the celebrate the launch of their Eyes on Summer collection. Guests includes Jason Wu, Maria Borges, Caro Daur, Jeanette Madsen, Thora Valdimars, Nathalie Emmanuel and Singapore’s social media darling Yoyo Cao—who also happens to be our insider on the trip.
In this BAZAAR exclusive, Yoyo Cao looks back on the Jet-A-Porter event in Greece, and shares her jet-setting beauty routine and fashion secrets.
You just spent an amazing JET-A-PORTER trip with NET-A-PORTER, what draws you to NET-A-PORTER?
NET-A-PORTER always has an amazing buy, and has the widest range of brands online. I also like how I can sort through different categories, and particularly enjoy their exclusive collections.
What does JET-A-PORTER mean to you?
JET-A-PORTER means vacation, a time to sit back, relax and unwind in style.
What is your favourite holiday destination and why?
Probably on one of Italy’s picturesque beaches, mostly because of the food and people.
What are your insider recommendations when it comes to the above destination?
Travelling by car is my favorite mode of transport because of accessibility. But if you’re not bothered by seasickness, travel by boat for the scenery.
What are the beauty products you never travel without?
I never travel without an entire stack of sheet masks.
Likewise, what are some fashion items that you never travel without?
A blazer, vintage jeans and a pair of pointy heels.

Do you have a pre-flight or in-flight beauty routine?
My pre-flight routine always involves a La Mer sheet mask on my car to the airport.

There isn’t a particular travel ritual. I just go with an open mind.
Besides beauty products, what are your other jet-setting essentials? (e.g. books, music, scarf, laptop etc.)
In my travel bag, there’s always my water bottle and some snacks.
