Samantha Barks in Roland Mouret
Samantha’s naturally been overshadowed by her more famous – and more nakedly award-seeking – Les Miserables co-stars, but we loved this look so much we had to give her a shoutout.
‘Les Misérables’ star Samantha Barks attends the 33rd Annual London Film Critics’ Circle Awards in a Roland Mouret dress paired with Jimmy Choo pumps.

We like the runway version better; especially with the belt, but the red carpet version is just fine. It’s sleek and sexy; bold and eye-catching. The classic silver pointy-toed pump was a great punctuation point.
And now, bitching:
Like we said, she could’ve used a belt. And some jewelry would have taken this further into night-time, if that makes any sense. There’s something a little business-like about the dress and since she’s at an awards ceremony, we think a touch of glamour and drama was needed to bump it up from “merely” being a chic look. Just some earrings and a bracelet is all we’re asking for. And we’re sorry, but the hair is awful.
It’s a great dress and pair of shoes, but if you want the full red carpet look, the effort doesn’t stop there, girl.
