Speaking of entertainment, have you ever wondered what it was like standing up on stage as Miss Golden Globes?

When I found out Rainey Qualley (daughter of Andie MacDowell) was Miss Golden Globes, I was extremely excited to support talent near my neck of the woods.

Rainey Qualley and Andie MacDowell are both from Asheville, NC, and Andie MacDowell is originally from Gaffney, SC. This means so much to me because I was raised in Greenville, SC!

Of course, I wanted to hear all the secrets of the behind-the-scenes on one of the most GLAMMOROUS nights of the year, aka The Golden Globes! Therefore, what better point of view to have than someone in front of the celebrities that night? Imagine Rainey’s view from the stage as Miss Golden Globes! Who the celebrities were on the front row and what it was like to present them their awards!

Here is a backstage look from the talented and beautiful Rainey Qualley, Miss Golden Globes 2012.

LH: What time did you start getting ready for the GG & tell us about your experience?

Rainey: Hair and Makeup came to my hotel room at 1 pm and we had to be on the red carpet at 3 pm. My mom and I were sharing so, we were in a little bit of a rush!

LH:  Did you do anything to prepare for the big moment on stage?

By the way, I love how GORGEOUS Rainey’s skin is, don’t you?

As a Master Esthetician of over 10 years and owner of a Greenville SC Boutique day spa, I get asked so many questions.

For example, are at home Microneedle rollers safe? How long should I leave my cleanser on?

Do I use an oil or a moisturizer at night and which one do I apply first?

You may get on the WAITLIST for answers through my Anti-aging Skin Masterclass! 

Rainey: I ate very clean and healthy for a while before the show. I wanted to make sure I felt good about myself and that always helps me. I had lots of interviews, and basically everyone I talked to, gave me advice ha-ha. It was a very exciting few weeks leading up to the show.

LH: What was the day like for you? Were you nervous leading up to the big moment of Miss Golden Globes?

Rainey: I wasn’t nervous about the Globes at all until rehearsal the day before! The room was filled with tables and chairs that all had whiteboards with the celebrities’ names and faces plastered on them that would be in the seat the next night.

It may not sound intimidating, but I was looking out thinking “Holy Crap! Look who’s sitting right in front of me!”

Then, I was pretty calm again on the red carpet. But the real nerves set in the night of the show. For the first 20 minutes, my legs felt like Jell-O!

LH:  When you were on stage as Miss Golden Globes, which audience member captivated you the most when you saw them?

Rainey: I spent the most time looking over at my mother and boyfriend. Every time I glanced in their direction, everyone at the table would give me air fives and thumbs up!

LH: You were lucky enough to see all the designer dresses in person! Which one was your absolute Favorite of the night?

Rainey: I thought Salma Hayek, and Charlize Theron looked amazing!
