Samantha Barks - V Festival 2013 - 8.17.2013
It has been a whirlwind and I’m enjoying the ride. It’s been mad - but I am loving every second of it.
Paving the way for the glitz and glam on the red carpet was Samantha Barks, who turned up in a flirty black and gold bandeau prom dress at the Royal Albert Hall event on Wednesday night.
The 23-year-old Les Miserables actress looked stunning in her printed dress which she teamed with a pair of gold strappy sandals.
Her ensemble showed off her super slender frame whilst she pinned her brunette locks up into a neat bun and finished the look off with dramatic smoky eye make-up and pink lip gloss.
It was a doubly special day for Samantha as she was not only celebrating the achievements of all the talented musicians, but it was also her birthday, and on the night the pretty brunette even performed songs from Les Misérables along with co-star Alfie Boe.
An excited Samantha tweeted; ‘Can’t wait to perform on my birthday tomorrow at the classical Brits! #BirthdayBrit :) xxxx’
”Ladies and gentlemen, Miss Velma Kelly in an act of desperation.”
