NeNe Leakes has always been a statement-making fashion diva. Not only does The Real Housewives of Atlanta pal love to dish out fabulous looks, but she also has no problem dishing out fashion advice when needed — even if it's for herself.
Over the past several seasons on RHOA, we've witnessed NeNe's sense of style continuously evolve (watch it all unfold in the clip above). So when we asked the Swagg Boutique owner to reflect on her Season 1 style, you can bet that she had some choice words to share with her past self.
Before we get into NeNe fashion's wisdom, here's a quick refresher on NeNe's Season 1 style:
"Oh my god, Season 1 NeNe would need to just do everything over," she told The Lookbook. She continued, "I mean no, gosh, she should take her hair off and throw it away, change her makeup, like, really, girl? Season 1 NeNe needs to just take it all off, girl. Everything. Isn’t that crazy how you look in the mirror and you think the mirror’s telling you the truth, but my mirror lied to me a lot of times."
The RHOA OG also shared how seeing herself on camera played a role in her style evolution. "Now when you get on camera, the camera really tells you your angle, what’s not your angle, don’t wear that eyeshadow no more, fix that eyebrow, change the hair — oh god, the camera really says a lot. It does."
After nine seasons of being a Real Housewife, we'd say this Georgia peach has definitely mastered her angles.
