What We Learnt When We Had Dinner With Kimberley Walsh For Her Very.co.uk Edit

[Instagram: Grazia_live]

This week we had an intimate dinner with a real life Girls Aloud girl. We headed to London's Soho Hotel, to celebrate the launch of Kimberley Walsh's edit for Very.co.uk. Kimbs has picked 23 of her favourite pieces from the Spring Summer 2014 collection from printed dresses to oversized shirts, with prices ranging from £29 to £69. We chatted between mouthfulls of chocolate mousse and swigs of red wine about why she loves the high street, how she picked her edit and, err, wallpapering. See below to find out what we learnt from hanging out with Kimba...


1. How she picked her Very.co.uk Spring Summer 2014 edit...

Kimberley said of her edit: 'Choosing the collection was amazing because I had the full pick of everything. I really tried to think about choosing things that would suit all different kinds of women, different shapes and also giving plenty of colour and print, while having things that are a little more tame. I hope I have done a really good job at giving something for everyone. I think I have! I know a lot of different shaped women, so I tried to think about them and model things on different people.'

2. On the high low mix...

Kimberley told us that when she was in Girls Aloud she was careful to wear high street pieces and looks which her fans could easily copy. She said: 'I think Very do an amazing job at creating fashion forward looks on the high street, which can actually be affordable. That's really important to me because I want people to be able to have style which is accessible.'

3. She had just been on a Girls Aloud night out...

Can you believe it's almost a year since Girls Aloud called it quits?! Kimberley said that she caught up with her BFFs Cheryl and Nicola on a 'very messy' night out at the London nightclub The Box on Saturday. Kimberley told us that the three girls had a fun night dancing - it certainly looked fun on Instagram!

No dry January then? The star told us that she isn't on a detox, but is looking to the sun for a January pick-me-up. She recently went on a three week vacay to Australia and is jetting off to Dubai.

4. Her hidden talent is...

... wallpapering. Yes, we're serious. Kimberley revealed over starters that she loves wallpapering and that she often spends her days off with a paint brush in hand, as she finds it really relaxing. She has decorated SIX bedrooms in her house and often lends her decorating services to her family. We wouldn't have guessed that one!
