Style focus – Marina Diamandis

April 2nd, 2012


The great thing about British pop music is that quirky style Queen’s always emerge to add extra visual  interest to those videos on heavy rotation on MTV. From punk Queens like Poly Styrene, to 80s legends Bananarama and more recent songstresses like Paloma Faith, Shingai Shoniwa, Amy Winehouse and Jessie J, British singers have shown a style and uniqueness that has made them quirky, unique and highly original.

The latest lady to add into the mix is Marina Diamandis, also known as Marina and the Diamonds. When Marina first emerged I found her style to be a little bit too garish, full of wacky prints and body skimming catsuits. But recently Marina has seen a style transformation that has made her a little bit prom queen, a little bit Sandra Dee and a little bit Marilyn Monroe. Gone are the dark locks, in comes peroxide waves (sometimes grey!), the catsuits have been replaced by lots of pink, pretty dresses and heels, sometimes worn with bobby socks.

The make up look  is strong too. Very dark, false eye lashes, facial decorations like diamonds and stars that resemble the sort of adornments worn by Marie Antoinette at the  court of Versailles. And lips of the palest of frosted pinks complete an overwhelmingly girlie look.

Marina’s look isn’t for everyone, but I really admire this unique and original look.
