The E! Live from the Red Carpet special for the Golden Globes featured the familiar faces of Ryan Seacrest, Giuliana Rancic, and Ross Mathews, but you may have not recognized Karrueche Tran on the Golden Globes red carpet. The actor and model joined Mathews as celebrities rolled up to the red carpet. She looked adorable in her fuchsia Dolce & Gabbana dress, but, uh, who is she?
Tran was super relatable talking about a mysterious celeb picking a wedgie; saying she was pumped to see Michelle Williams, Mandy Moore, and Kerry Washington; and even admitting that she might pass out if she sees Ryan Gosling. (Same.) However, her hosting the E! red carpet shows that her life beyond the Globes is a bit less relatable. She is probably best known for being the ex-girlfriend of Chris Brown, but she earned her spot alongside Mathews for other reasons.
The model knows all about fashion since she started off as a personal shopper at Nordstrom before she was famous and has done cosmetics collaborations with ColourPop, including lip glosses and lip stains. She's also had experience on camera beyond her modeling as she has been in the soap opera web series The Bay. Plus, she has red carpet hosting experience already from hosting the BET Awards carpet in 2014. So, with her fashion and acting experience, you may just see Tran on the red carpet with Mathews, Seacrest, and Rancic again after her Golden Globes appearance.
