The Unknown Who Stole The Show At Last Night's Golden Globes


The Golden Globe Awards were crawling with A-listers, but for some viewers at home, it was one relatively unknown woman handing out bottles of water who stole the show ahead of Hollywood's biggest party.The woman appears to be a promotional model for FIJI, the award show's official water sponsor. Wearing a blue gown, the brunette dubbed the 'FIJI water girl' on social media appears in dozens of preshow photos taken by major news agencies, oftentimes perfectly framed in photos behind celebrities like Constance Wu, Julianne Moore, Judith Light and Darren Criss.In a handful of shots, the woman is staring directly at the camera and appears to be posing, leading some online to question whether she was intentionally photobombing Hollywood's big names or if she was simply manning a post assigned by the show's organizers.

Based on promotional photos from the red carpet, the woman is one of at least four FIJI models wearing similar blue dresses, all apparently tasked with handing out bottles of FIJI water to parched celebrities.The other three women, though, didn't have the fortune of appearing alongside nearly as many A-listers as their newly famous colleague, who seems to have been stationed at the beginning of the step-and-repeat area where celebrities pose for photographers and speak with reporters on their way into the show at the Beverly Hilton.Some media outlets have identified the woman as Los Angeles model Kelleth Cuthbert. An Instagram account belonging to Cuthbert featured photos and videos posted from the red carpet, and Cuthbert wrote on Facebook late Sunday that it had been "the strangest day of my life."The Wonderful Company, FIJI's parent company, has not yet responded to a request for comment about its model's newfound fame. The company said in a tweet that they were "so glad everyone is talking about our water," adding that they could sense the woman was "right behind us, isn't she?"
