First of all, don’t forget to watch our live feed of the show tonight over at our sister site, Right TV. As Miss Golden Globe 2011, Gia will be on hand to assist with handing out trophies to the presenters and ushering the winners into the press room.

The honor is typically bestowed upon a daughter or son of a celeb each year. In the past we’ve seen a young Anne Archer, Melanie Griffith and Laura Dern help out with Golden Globe duties.

Gia was announced as Miss GG last month and since then has been on the lookout for ‘the dress’. Everyone is wondering — what will she wear? We know one thing for sure. It won’t be a black dress. She said recently:

“It will be something appropriate for the event. The Golden Globes are definitely more elegant and classy. I’ll have my hair pulled back and clean makeup. My personal style is very edgy and not Golden Globes-friendly. I am always trying to not wear black. I wear black all the time, every day, and it’s always a struggle to get me to wear color. I am definitely wearing something not black.”

She took to her Twitter page a few hours ago and tweeted, ‘Here at rehearsals for the @goldenglobes… Wait till you see where everyone’s sitting…’ How exciting, eh?

So what do we know about Gia? How old is she? She’s 20 years old, born to actor Joe Mantegna and his wife Arlene. She is no stranger to acting, and in fact her first foray in the entertainment world came by way of a role with her father in ‘Uncle Nino’ (2003). Since then, according to Celebrity Circuit, she has made appearances on ‘Secret Life of the American Teenager’ and ‘Criminal Minds”, again, alongside her father. Currently, you can see the beautiful brunette on ‘Gigantic’, seen on TeenNick. My girls love that show!

Folks, the show is just a few hours away. Good luck to you, Gia Mantegna. No doubt you will do your family proud. Looking forward to seeing what Miss Golden Globe 2011 will be wearing tonight. See photos and video below.
