Exclusive Photos: See Miss Golden Globes Sosie Bacon's Beauty Runthrough Before Her Big Debut

01/10/2014 at 03:08 PM ET

She’s gotten some good advice from dad Kevin. We’ve played “five degrees of Sosie Bacon” with her Miss Golden Globes predecessors. And now that we’re just days away from Sosie Bacon’s debut as Miss Golden Globes, we went to the Beverly Hilton to see how her beauty run-through is going — and check on her nerves.

The daughter of actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick joins a grand tradition of celebrity offspring donning beautiful gowns and their best smile to escort winners off the stage. But unlike past winners, Bacon is cheerfully owning up to the fact that getting ready for her big night is going to take a little extra work. “I’ve been walking as much as I can in heels,” she says. “It’s a difficult thing for me.”

She also was happy to have professionals there to run through three possible looks for Sunday, because as she admitted, doing her own makeup doesn’t come naturally — and that may be genetic. “I don’t think [my mom] taught me any makeup tips,” she said. “We’re not good at doing our own makeup. We never have been, either of us.” Fortunately, makeup artist Kendra Richards was on hand to try three looks out on the 21-year-old that corresponded with three different hairstyles, all prepped with L’Oréal hair and beauty products.

“I didn’t expect to love the blue eyeliner — I barely wear any makeup, ever, so it was cool to try something new,” she said of the first look (below left) which went with a voluminous, wavy blowout. Look two was a sleek ponytail and darker lip (below right), which Bacon felt was a little conservative, but got props from her because “I think it makes me look really adult, and everyone’s always telling me I look so young, so this helps.”

Look three (below right) was a half-up, curled look with a bright lip, which Bacon says is most in her comfort zone. “I think the first look was sort of fun and out of my element, and this is more what I would actually wear,” she says, adding that the hair is “something that I was really interested in doing for the actual carpet.”

Bacon, wearing an H&M top, Rag & Bone pants, House of Harlow jewels and rings by her pal’s line Woodrow Jewelry, also got to spend time checking out racks of dresses pulled just for her (including the Black Halo romper above), which she said she’s been preparing for by cutting out carbs and watching her diet in a sensible way. “I’ve never been someone who diets. I always eat whatever I want, and I realized I want to feel good,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s not for anyone else, it’s just for myself. I’ve been doing less carbs and such. I’ve given myself a lot of time so it’s not some extreme diet. I just don’t think I could do that.” That being said, she’s counting down the moments until she can indulge at In-N-Out with a protein-style burger.

Bacon said she’s keeping nerves at bay by prepping as much as possible. “I’m trying to keep it as stress-free as possible. I know it’s such a long day,” she says, adding that her parents’ support is key. “I think they’re excited for me. They’re looking forward to it. They’ll be there and they’ll be supporting me.” All that’s left is for her to surprise them on the red carpet — and stay upright in those heels.

Noneya on

She’s a very pretty girl – just like her mom! Jaylynn – you are just mean! What’s so cool about making fun of somebody’s name?!?

GlobesFan on

She’s so beautiful!!

Jaylynn on

OMG Noneya RELAX. I didn’t make fun of her name, I said names they should have named her. Afterall it is Hollywood. I am sure she and/or her parents are not going to read this.

Bella T on

She’s adorable and I seriously love the name Sossie! Her parents appear to be a very grounded and loving couple.


SHE should have been the one casted in Fifty Shades……pretty girl.

Erin on

So pretty! I look forward to seeing her at the show.

shannon on

she reminds me of the woman who plays chelsea on young and restless.

momof3 on

She’s so cute!

TwinklyPinky on

WOOF-talk about a BUTTAFACE!

guest on

She is adorable!

Yay on

She is a beautiful combo of her parents. Can’t wait to see her Sunday night. Loved her on the Closer.

Jay on

She is just adorable! Good luck to her Sunday night!!

guest on

I think sosie is cute, but my daughter is far more attractive than she is. far more.. but, I’m not a celebrity, so who cares.. I think for a change in the academy awards to pick someone, who is beautiful and not in a family of celebrities. that would make a difference. but, who I’m I. a blue collar worker. who cares..

Ginger on

Lovely girl. I enjoyed her stint on Closer with her mom. So does anyone know how she pronounces her name. Is it so-see or soZie? Wonder where it came from.

Ginger on

Lovely girl. I saw her stint on Closer. Really enjoyed her. So does anyone know how her name is pronounced. Is it So-see or SoZee? Wonder where it came from?

Vic on

Very beautiful young lady

Maria on

As a lowly teacher, I can only dream about having a day of pampering and going to a red carpet event in a beautiful gown. Back to grading papers…

Pattimelt on

I agree with Jaylynn….lol!

Lindsay on

She is gorgeous! She looks like her mom with her dad’s coloring and I happen to like her name too! I hope to see her on the screen more – but have to disagree with the 50 Shades comment. I don’t want to see that much of her, she seems to have more respect for herself than that, thank goodness.

honeybear on

It’s pronounced Sosie..like Susie. It’s not some offball name, though uncommon. She’s named after someone. And I know a Pepper. I’m a Fawn. It’s silly to make such mundane comments abt a name. Yawn.

Pattimelt on

Oh, lighten up Honey Boo Boo

annibanani2 on

Very pretty! Not shocking considering her parents. She looks like someone though…Rachel Bilson a little maybe? I’m glad to hear she can’t walk that well in heels, either!

Sylvia Tarvers Weston on

Sosie is a naturally beautiful young woman and she doesn’t need all the junk women put on their faces. I actually think make-up can age skin.

Guest on

Who does everyone think she looks like, Mom or Dad? She sort of has her moms eyes and nose, but dad’s facial structure otherwise. Anyone else care to weigh in?

Stephanie on

I love her name. It’s my three year old’s nickname. Her name is Sofia, but since she couldn’t pronounce that until this year she would always call herself Sosie…it kind of stuck!
