Samantha Barks In Celia Kritharioti - Jameson Empire Awards 2013

Samantha Barks was beaming at the 2013 Jameson Empire Awards, held at London’s Grosvenor House, following her ‘Best Female Newcomer’ win for her role in ‘Les Miserables’.
The award-winning actress wore a Celia Kritharioti dress for the occasion.

Her ivory dress with an embroidered skirt and a Peter Pan collar was styled with black bow-front pumps and a simple updo.

I’m very much on the fence with this look.

Part of me likes the less formal feel of this look. The other part feels like this is too twee for the 22-year-old actress. This dress wouldn’t have been out of place on the red carpet at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.

All of me, however, dislikes her shoe choice.

Samantha Barks In Valentino – 2013 Oscars

oscars-samantha-barks

Samantha Barks made a striking silhouette on the red carpet Sunday at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘Les Misérables’ actress wore a sleek Valentino Spring 2013 gown with a plunging neckline. The virtual unknown is taking her first trip to the Academy Awards seriously, and has succeeded in turning quite a few heads with her sexy look.

While a neckline this low could easily look trashy on an actress with a curvier figure, the svelte Samantha absolutely stuns, and fills it out just enough to look even better than the runway model in my book.

Her Forevermark statement pendent necklace and undone updo finish off her ‘sexy unknown’ look, and you can be sure that after tonight,  Samantha Barks will be unknown no more!

Samantha Barks In Roland Mouret - 2013 London Film Critics Circle Film Awards

Samantha Barks joined fellow Brit Emily Blunt on the red carpet for the 2013 London Critics’ Circle Film Awards, held at the Mayfair Hotel in London on Sunday evening.

The ‘Les Miserables’ star wore a Roland Mouret Spring 2013 fitted green-and-black bi-colour dress.

Her sexy halter frock with an origami pleated neckline was styled with metallic-silver Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps, which continue to be a celebrity favourite.

Perfecting her body-contouring look with a simple updo, the actress looked beautiful thanks to her flawless makeup, which included a glossy pink lip colour.

Samantha Barks In Stella McCartney — ‘Les Miserables’ London Premiere

Samantha Barks had bulbs flashing at ‘Les Miserables’ world premiere Leicester Square’s Odeon theatre in London on Wednesday evening.

In a carpet-dusting custom made midnight blue Stella McCartney gown, Samantha has come a long way from her I’d Do Anything reality show days. Clearly the new Éponine is a fan of the sheer-paneled cutout as evidenced by a similar look she modeled at the Hollywood Films Awards in October.

For a Hollywood newbie prone to committing freshman fashion faux pas, this perfectly tasteful gown, simple updo, and subtle jewelry is fine. But “fine” isn’t what a triple-threat ingénue is after when she’s just trying to make a name for herself in starlet-saturated Tinseltown.

And the fact remains: if you even think WHMWT (Would Helen Mirren Wear This?), that’s a sure sign it’s too old.

Sorry, Sam, but the fancy grandma beading really only belongs on une femme d’un certain âge.
