Hollywood occasionally intersects with the innocent ritual that is the Rose Court. The fairest flowers of Pasadena’s young womanhood compete for a chance to wave from a float. This year, Mary McCluggage, daughter of Kerry McCluggage, one-time head of Paramount TV turned indie producer, is on the court.
Of course, the most famous Rose Queen of recent years is Sophia Bush.
So, ladies, when you’re smiling and waving on New Year’s Day, going down Colorado Blvd.–be careful what you wish for.
