Style Inspiration - Marina Diamandis

I'm not a fan of most people who are held up as style icons, I find them rather dull. Alexa Chug, zzzz.
I'm much more influenced by women in music like Robyn, the lovely ladies from Those Dancing Days and Paloma Faith. Marina Diamandis (along with Daisy Lowe) has definitely been my stand out style inspiration for the past few years.

When Marina Diamandis was asked to describe her style in three words she choose: 'vintage, cheerleader and cartoon'. I love all the eccentric things she wears and she can be both elegant and fun. She is also Welsh like me which makes her instantly at least 50% more amazing ;)

Marina has definitely inspired my make up look which is heavily pencilled eyebrows and bright lipsticks. I saw her 'Hollywood' video and bought an eyebrow pencil straight away, I had to get that look. She has an air of old Hollywood glamour about her which I try to (unsuccessfully) recreate every day. I can see that her style would not be to every ones taste but I think it is good to be bold.



Marina was featured on the Vogue UK site for a feature showing you what she wore everyday in November which you can view here, if only I could look that amazing everyday!

Who is your style inspiration?
