It was one of those mornings.
Upon entering the Buro pop-up
, I stumbled into the hair and makeup room to find Yvette King
. If my brain hadn't fully functioned before then, it's certainly awoke in a jolt now. Oh yes — I suddenly recalled that she's shooting with us that day.
"Hi!" I exclaimed, slowly retreating. "Oh hey," she shot back in the lilting, Aussie drawl you could recognise anywhere. With a mobile in hand (King is very plugged in, with a blog
and accounts on Instagram
and Facebook which she updates regularly), her eyes dart back and forth from her stylists and mobile to her brown, slightly almond-shaped upturned eyes across the mirror.
King's no stranger to doing everything all at once. A regular on the hosting circuit, she possesses a face and voice you'd recognise from red carpet events, launches, premieres and television programs such as those screened on Fox Sports
With her profile swiftly on the rise, it's still a surprise that people occasionally get her name wrong — recently, Starbucks scrawled "Evad" on her cup instead of her actual name. Not for long though — with her newly appointed gig as host for E! News Asia
, she's really playing in the big leagues now. A dream job that's been 10 years in the making, it was on a vision board she placed in her wardrobe when she first moved to Singapore.
Watching her channel high-fashion ease in frocks by Chanel
and Bottega Veneta
, it's obvious that King's a natural. She knows her body well, is comfortable in front of the camera and doesn't need much direction.
