Diana Vickers channels Coronation Street icon Deirdre Barlow as she rocks a pair of oversized 70s shades on her way to the recording studio

She regularly shares her funky retro-inspired outfits with her thousands of followers on social media. 

And Diana Vickers looked exactly like the late Coronation Street icon Deirdre Barlow when she rocked a pair of oversized 70s shades on her way to a recording studio in London on Wednesday.   

The former X-factor contestant, 29, was the spitting image of a young Anne Kirkbride who became known for her ginormous glasses while playing the iconic soap character Deirdre on ITV from 1972 to 2014, leaving a year before she died from breast cancer.

Diana gazed upwards as she adjusted her spectacular yellow-tinted shades while walking along the city streets.

The singer clearly had a sunny state of mind as she kept her sunglasses in place despite drizzle falling on the lenses and obscuring her vision.  

Huge frames became synonymous with Coronation Street’s Deirdre Barlow during her 42 years on Corrie. 

Thanks to the iconic accessory, young Anne Kirkbride was even nicknamed ‘Miss Sexy Specs’ throughout her time starring in the soap.

Diana looked stylish in the huge shades that she paired with a similarly large pair of gold hoop earrings. 

Layering up for the cold weather, the singer donned a white turtleneck jumper under a cream sweater fest and a statement brown leather trench coat.    

The Once hitmaker kept things stylish from head to toe as she sported a pair of eye catching hounds-tooth flairs and a Gucci handbag as part of the fashion forward ensemble.   

She completed the bold look with a pair of high-heeled red patent boots and strutted towards the studio to record new music.

Last year, Diana confessed she’d spent a night alone with the A-list heart-throb Leonardo DiCaprio at his Hollywood home.   

Appearing on Celebrity Karaoke Club, the chanteuse said her night with the Romeo + Juliet legend was far from scandalous, and that all they did was watch TV. 

She explained: ‘I was more like hanging out with his friends and then I got a message being like “oh come back Leo, he’s having a vibe” and I thought it was going to be all Wolf Of Wall Street, like a massive thing.

‘I got back there and it was [just the two of us]. It was very chilled and we just ended up watching telly!’
