Following tradition where a daughter or son of one of Hollywood’s most respected actors is selected to assist at the Golden Globes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association named Corinne Foxx, daughter of Jamie Foxx, Miss Golden Globe 2016. The announcement was made at a party helt at West Hollywood's Ysabel restaurant, serving as the de facto opening of Golden Globe Season.

Foxx, a USC student who recently wrapped a Ralph Lauren campaign, dazzled in a lacy black Lorena Sarbu romper, Stuart Weitzman shoes and Jimmy Choo clutch, with Effy jewelry, said, “I am so honored and humbled to be chosen as this year's Miss Golden Globe. I remember attending the Golden Globes in 2013 with my dad. I remember Francesca Eastwood and Sam Fox present as Mr. and Miss Golden Globe. To be in their shoes today is a dream come true." She went on to thank her parents. "My mother for her constant support and love and my father for always encouraging me to pursue my dreams."

Foxx follows Greer Grammer, daughter of Kelsey Grammer, who was Miss Golden Globe last year. Previous honorees include Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick; Francesca Eastwood, daughter of Clint Eastwood and Frances Fisher; Sam Fox, son of Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan; Rainey Qualley, daughter of Andie McDowell; Gia Mantegna, daughter of Joe Mantegna; Rumer Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis; Laura Dern, daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern; Joely Fisher, daughter of Connie Stevens and Eddie Fisher; Melanie Griffith, daughter of Tippi Hedren; Freddie Prinze, Jr., son of Freddie Prinze; and Mavis Spencer, daughter of Alfre Woodard.

Celebrity guests in attendance included Saoirse Ronan, Aziz Ansari, Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt, Patricia Clarkson, Sir Ian McKellenJason Segal, Bryan Cranston. Jeremy Piven,Ronald Moore ( creator and showrunner of Outlander), Lisa Edelstein, O'Shea Jackson, jr, Aaron Sorkin, Anthony Anderson,Sarah Hyland, Tom Hooper, director of The Danish Girl, James Vanderbilt, director of Truth and the entire cast of Casual.

The party was hopping in no time at the restaurant which is so trendy it doesn't have a sign outside. Flashbulbs popped on the red carpet outside, while the interior was lit up with fairy lights in trees. The mostly black-clad crowd sipped Moët and talked shop. Jamie Foxx was the very image of the proud dad, celebrating the night with Corinne on his arm. He stopped by to share his enthusiasm with us: "I am over the moon!"

And so another Golden Globes season kicks off in style.
