Cutie Couture: Quvenzhane Wallis Picked As The New Face Of Armani Junior
Isn’t she just too adorable?
Oscar Nominee Quvenzhane Wallis Named New Face Of Armani Jr.
Before we see her hit the big screen in “Annie” this summer, we’ll be catching the mini-starlet in ad campaigns for none other than Armani. This little girl is on her way to Hollywood super-stardom quicker than actresses twice her age. Via HollywoodReporter:
Ten-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis, star of Beasts of the Southern Wild and the youngest Oscar nominee of all time, has been named the face of Armani Junior, Giorgio Armani’s line for children and teens. She is the first major child celebrity to be the face of a luxury brand.
Says Giorgio Armani: “Quvenzhane is so talented, despite her young age. Her kindness, curiosity and openness toward others really struck me, as they are all traits I admire. It is for this very reason that I wanted her to be the face of Armani Junior. With her insatiable energy, Quvenzhane made the clothing come alive, interpreting it in her own singular way.”
Says Wallis: “I’m so happy to be chosen by Mr. Armani to be his ambassador for Armani Junior. I felt the same excitement when I got cast for a major film. Me? Wow! I was honored to wear his custom gown to the Oscars. It made me feel like a princess. When I saw Mr. Armani’s Prive show in New York, the dresses were so pretty … I had too many favorites. Afterwards when I met him, I realized Mr. Armani is such a nice man. I liked that that he was so thoughtful. It’s fun to wear Armani Junior since I really like the clothes. It’s young. It’s cool. My friends are going to want to borrow all my clothes.”
10 years old and already rocking custom gowns on the red carpet, going to fashion shows, and rubbing elbows with Giorgio Armani?! Congrats Quvenzhane!
