Kimberly Hart-Simpson has debuted a new look while also showing off her unusually-designed home. The Coronation Street actress, who fans best know the actress for playing Nicky Wheatley in the ITV soap, has swapped her blonde locks for a more striking white do as she modelled her latest fashion creation.
She looked amazing as she donned a bra that featured a feathered trip that she had made out of an old Adidas t-shirt. Followers of Kimberley, who first appeared on the cobbles in 2020, know that she is dab hand as a seamstress, reworking and upcycling charity shop bargains. She even owns her own business, Hart Work, which recently had its own pop-up in high-street store Urban Outfitters.
Last month she was joined at the launch by her Corrie co-stars Elle Mulvaney and Jack James Ryan, who play couple Amy Barlow and Jacob Hay, and Jack’s sister Rebecca Ryan who played stalker Lydia Chambers in the show. She was also supported by Tanisha Gorey, who plays Corrie’s Asha Alahan, and fellow soap star Jessica Ellis who played Tegan Lomax in the Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks.
Kimberly has now shown off her latest handiwork, not only showing off her new luscious locks, but the bra reworked from a t-shirt which she also paired with a pair of wide-leg Adidas tracksuit bottoms.
And there was definitely a theme going on as the 35-year-old posed in the mirror of her living room which was decked out in other Adidas-branded items. The sofas were covered in branded throws while a neon light in the shape of the sportswear brand’s logo lit up in the background.
Her coffee table was also trainer-themed with a glass top put over a blue box of trainers to make a table. “Who you calling obsessive?” she even captioned the post, giving a nod to her outfit and the design of her home.
Lawrence Robb, who plays Mackenzie Boyd in Emmerdale, got the brand memo, cheekily writing: ” Your insta has brought ‘Everlast’ing ‘New Balance’ to my feed… you’re a ‘Champion’ Kimberly.” Kimberly replied with a string of laughing emojis before adding: “Go on lad.”
Meanwhile, Bobby Norris, best known for starring in The Only Way is Essex, wrote: “STUNNING!!” And fans were soon commenting as well. @gouldberg85 commented: “Lady gaga going on there lol…. absolutely gorgeous!”@stephjones_250195 wrote: “Loving the whole look and the hair is just [flame emojis].”
@iancraigedmonds said: “Love your blonde hair.” @bexmassey shared: “You look insane.” @jasonpaul8797 replied: “Loving the Adidas.. You rock hun. Stunningly beautiful.” @daniellemorris92 added: “Oh hey Kimmy K manehhh edition.” But when @waynefelton39 said: “You look so different,” Kimberly replied: “It’s a wig tbf.”
Kimberly also shared her latest post to her Instagram Story and said: “Can you guess my favourite brand? Answer with comment on post (wrong answers welcome if they are funny).” She then gave a closer look at her latest craftwork, filming herself showing off all angles in the mirror. “Using every single bit of a reworked T-shirt including label,” she wrote.
Kimberly set up Hart-Work in 2018 and all the items are handmade by the soap star herself. Speaking to the Manchester Evening News and other press, Kimberly said it was buying the cheapest sewing machine she could find, which she ‘put on an Argos card because I couldn’t afford it outright’ that she credits to saving her mental health.
Last month she wowed fans with her latest dazzling look while sending out an important message. The soap star posed in her black and red embroidered number which bought from the British Heart Foundation for a bargain £3, and she said she felt ‘a million dollars.’ The praise came pouring in as the actor shared an ‘inspirational’ Instagram post about snapping up second-hand clothing.
