Rainey Qualley, Andie MacDowell’s Daughter, Named ‘Miss Golden Globe’ For 2012

Rainey Qualley – Rainey Qualley, Andie Macdowell’s daughter, has been selected as Miss Golden Globe for the upcoming 2012 awards ceremony.

As part of her duties as Miss Golden Globe will to be handing out the awards to the winners after being announced.

The annual title awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The honoree, traditionally the daughter (or son) of a celebrity, assists in the Association’s Golden Globe Awards.

The 21-year-old aspiring actress and singer will do the same job done in past years by Rumer Willis, Lorraine Broussard Nicholson and the daughters of many other actors and actresses. Gia Mantegna was last year’s Miss Golden Globe.

“I would like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for giving me this wonderful opportunity to serve as Miss Golden Globe 2012,” Qualley told reporters gathered at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood, reports People magazine. “I’m really looking forward to being a part of this year’s awards presentation.”

The Golden Globes are scheduled to air Jan. 11, 2012, and are set to be hosted by Ricky Gervais, host of last year’s show.

In the early 1980s, Andie MacDowell herself modeled for Vogue magazine and appeared in ad campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Vassarette, Armani perfume, Sabeth-Row, Mink International, Anne Klein and Bill Blass. She worked with such esteemed photographers as Bruce Weber, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Irving Penn and Herb Ritts among others.

A series of billboards in Time Square and national television commercials for Calvin Klein drew attention to her and led to her 1984 film debut in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, a role in which her lines were recorded by Glenn Close because her southern accent was too pronounced for her to play the role of an Englishwoman.
