Talking about this, she said, “[Personal style] is about how you feel. Every couple of years, I create a mood board. Sometimes, I just feel like changing my style, so I’ll go on Pinterest and create a mood board like, ‘This is going to be the new me.’ Then, I go after it and start shopping in that direction.”

Further, Venus went on to add, “There was one point where all I wanted to do was be more risqué and wear shorter stuff, and I made another mood board after. I haven’t made one recently, though. We’ll see where it goes. Naomi Campbell is my whole style icon. She’s incredible. I love her. She just keeps reinventing herself. She’s amazing.”
