Brooke Vincent seems to have risen up the ranks rapidly from schoolgirl to screen siren, a progression which is easily understood witnessing her red carpet appearance at the 2012 Soap Awards.
The 19-year-old opted for a daring and low cut purple maxi dress, which she accessorised with a glitzy gold clutch bag
and sparkling bangles.
She kept her hair long and loose, while her make up involved smoky eye shadow, creating a very mature look.
Other stars to take the plunge and opt for more adventurous styles included Eastenders' Preeya Kalidas in a red floor length gown and Emmerdale's Chelsea Halfpenny who chose to wear a peach strapless maxi dress.
Michelle Keegan meanwhile, who won the Sexiest Female award, kept it classy in a shimmering navy blue gown.
