GOLDEN GIRL: This year’s Miss Golden Globe Francesca Eastwood was the guest of honor at the World Gold Council’s lunch to kick off this week’s Globes festivities. The first event held at Chateau Marmont’s newest venue, Selma House, the luncheon featured all manner of gold baubles from jewelers like Neil Lane, who was also in attendance.
Eastwood, the daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher, chatted animatedly about her duties for this weekend. “I’m a bit nervous to be on camera all the time, since I’ll be handing out all the awards on stage, but I’m also very excited.” She said she also has older sister Alison, a former Miss Golden Globe, to look to for advice, as well as Fisher, who is also “my best acting coach.”

The budding actress plans to wear a white Pronovias dress on the red carpet Sunday, and an ice blue Armani gown for the awards show. For lunch, she chose a red and blue taffeta Armani frock accessorized with her own Equipment cashmere sweater plus two custom Jennifer Meyer necklaces — both gold, of course.
Eastwood has had a busy few months, having just wrapped the thriller “Final Girl,” directed by her boyfriend, Tyler Shields, who was also her lunch date. “It’s coming out at the end of the year,” he added. She is also set to be the new face for Too Faced cosmetics, whose fall ad campaign will be shot soon.
