Dressed in a floral-printed white outfit, minimal accessories, a white facemask, and her signature black glasses, she briefly disclosed, "I contracted a post-viral condition in 2019. I'm okay now," without delving further into the specifics of her past illness.

However, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Library of Medicine has defined Violet's condition.

According to NCBI, post-viral pain syndrome is a complex condition that occurs after recovering from a viral infection. It can cause persistent pain, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, nerve pain, cognitive difficulties, and sleep disturbances.

By sharing her experience, Violet highlights the challenges of this often misunderstood condition and underscores the importance of public awareness and support.

In addition to her passion for public health, Violet celebrated a significant milestone by graduating from Marlborough High School. This momentous occasion left her mother, Jennifer, overwhelmed with emotion.

Last May, Jennifer shared her heartfelt experience on Instagram, sharing four photos and a video of herself crying on a plane, worried she might miss Violet's graduation ceremony. "Tell me you have a graduate without telling me you have a graduate. 🎓 (bless our hearts 🥺♥️🤣)," Jennifer's captioned her post.

Fashion-wise, opinions varied. Some questioned her outfit with comments like, "What's up with her outfit?" and "Violet dresses very weird." However, a defender asserted, "She's a modest young woman."

More netizens complimented Violet's fashion choices, with one noting pleasantly, "Didn't realize she had such good taste." Another added warmly, "Awwww, what a cutie. She's matched the color of the vest with her name."

As a teenager, Violet developed a passion for experimenting with makeup, starting at the age of 13. In a 2019 interview, her mother noted Violet's fascination with makeup and explained that while Violet enjoys trying different products, she is careful not to overdo it.

The "Alias" star mentioned that Violet sometimes checks in with her before leaving the house to ensure her makeup is appropriate. If it's not, Jennifer advises her to tone it down. Navigating Violet's teenage years has been a learning process for the actress, who acknowledged the challenges of adolescence.

While discussing Violet's interest in makeup, the actress reflected, "I think it's probably extra complicated when you literally were nursed in the makeup chair as an infant, and have grown up sitting in your mom's lap while she got her makeup done your whole life."

In February, Violet's younger sibling made waves in West Hollywood with a bold new look: a pink buzzcut, blue shorts, and a checkered shirt. The public praised the 15-year-old's unique style and individuality and many noted the teen's resemblance to Ben.

Two months later, at their grandfather's memorial service in April, Seraphina introduced herself as Fin. Fin made a poignant statement by wearing a black and white suit, publicly embracing this identity.

Fin's authenticity and Violet's courage in sharing her health journey and personal style amid public reactions reflect the family's narrative of resilience. One thing is certain for these siblings as they embrace new chapters of their lives: Jennifer and Ben will be there to support them through every milestone.
