Singer and actress Kimberley Walsh wears her glasses aloud and proud – and is calling for others to do the same. 

The former Girls Aloud singer has teamed up with Specsavers to front the 2014 Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards.

‘I’m really excited to be an ambassador for the Specsavers Awards this year. It’s such a great idea to get people to send in pics of how they wear their glasses and how they make them a part of who they are because it’s a very personal thing. It will be great fun.’

Glasses have become an important part of Kimberley’s life and she has had a great time embracing her new look.

‘I’ve been wearing glasses now for six years.  I think I let my eyes get a little bit worse than I should have before I did start wearing them but now I have fully embraced them - it’s a new look for me.’

As a fashion fan, Kimberley has found a glasses style that suits her, and with all the ranges available at Specsavers, the choices are endless.

‘I like to make a real statement with my glasses by wearing something bold. They are such a part of who you are and a fun way to express yourself! Everyone should wear their specs with pride!’

‘I think glasses are sophisticated.  I am going to try to be even more adventurous now I’m Specsavers’ ambassador.’
