London: Kimberley Walsh learned to love her curvy frame after being inspired by Beyonce Knowles.

The 'Girls Aloud' singer used to hate her body shape but when she saw how 'halo' singer carried herself in clothes that flattered her shape, Walsh learnt to love her body, reported on a website.

'I grew up thinking Kate Moss was the perfect woman but that was a totally unachievable body shape for me. It was never ever going to happen. Can you imagine me in a pair of skinny jeans?,' she said.

'Then along came Beyonce. We were exactly the same age and she looked amazing, so I started to dress like her and suddenly my shape made sense.

I'd think: 'Oh, yes. Beyonce's wearing a figure-hugging dress and drawing attention to her tiny waist, so I'd buy a new dress and a large belt, go out and pretend to be Beyonce'. She was a great alter ego for me,' she added.
