She's making a name for herself as something of an eclectic dresser, following in the footsteps of stars such as Lady Gaga.

But Marina Diamandis took her outrageous dressing to the extreme yesterday as she headed out for an interview at Radio 1.

Marina, better known by her stage name Marina and the Diamonds, certainly stood out from the crowd as she arrived at the studios wearing a pair of pink, sparkly roller skate inspired platform shoes.

The 26-year-old Welsh singer teamed the crazy footwear with a pair of tight jeans and a pink fluffy jumper, finishing off the look with a matching pink hat over her dyed grey hair.

Despite most people going to Radio 1 to promote their music, Marina wrote on her Twitter page that she was 'just going in for a cup of tea + a biscuit + there is nothing wrong with that!'

However, Marina is currently working hard on her highly-anticipated second album, Electra Heart.
Standing out from the crowd: The heels certainly drew attention

But she explained in a recent interview that she hadn't admitted to her friends and family that she wanted to pursue a career in music until she was 20 because she felt ashamed of her ambition.

She told Female First: 'I think it was because I really wanted to be famous but was so embarrassed because it's not a nice trait to have."

'I couldn't admit it to anyone because they would be like, "How are you going to make this happen? What talent do you have?".

'And I wasn't any good at music yet. So I thought I would wait until I could show them I was famous, instead of telling them.'

Marina has also spoken about her upcoming record Electra Heart, explaining that it will 'portray part of the American dream' through the music..

She said: 'I think a lot of people will think Electra Heart is an alter ego or something but she's not.

'It's kind of basically a vehicle to portray part of the American dream, with elements of Greek tragedy and that's all going to be coming out through the visuals. It's hard to explain but I think you'll see it when it all comes together.'
