New Look’s image and Girl Aloud’s member Kimberley Walsh was kind enough to share her size with us (and it’s not the overly-popular-in-Hollywood-must-be-size-2) and a few thoughts about body image. From Daily Mail:
â€˜I’m always being told I should do a lipstick ad because of my huge mouth,’ she laughs. â€˜But I think my skin might be too old for a beauty campaign. I’m 28 now. The wrinkles are starting to show!’
â€˜I’m like any other normal girl, I have ups and downs; I can focus and be healthy for a few weeks and then I’ll have a bad week. If I ate what the rest of the girls ate I’d be three times the size, but at the same time, I’m not vain enough to starve myself. I’d much rather be content in my life and a normal size. I’m a 10 on top and a 12 below. I think it’s quite good for young girls that in the band we’ve all got different figures.’
About her first quote: Yeah, right! She’s gorgeous.
I know that there are endless debates on this topic, but what would you say: A UK size 12 is the equivalent of a US…? And a European size… ? Anyway, she’s the only band member that maintained her shape and weight since the beginning of her career (while all others have lost weight).
See more pictures of Kimberley after the jump! She’s 5’5” in case you’re wondering.
