Quvenzhane Wallis Named Face Of Armani Junior
If you thought Quvenzhane Wallis was cute before, she just landed a new gig and it oozes of adorableness. The “Beasts of the Southern Wild” actress was named the new face of Armani Junior making her the “first major child celebrity to be the face of a luxury brand.” She was photographed by Stefano Azario.
“Quvenzhane is so talented, despite her young age. Her kindness, curiosity and openness towards 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 Giorgio Armani.
This isn’t Quvenzhane’s only “first,” if you don’t remember, Wallis was the youngest Academy Award nominee in a lead role of all time. When she isn’t stuffing puppies into her satin jacket, the 10-year-old star is filming the film-adaptation of “Annie,” so-starring Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz.
In related news, Quvenzhane wasn’t the only celebrity kid who stole our heart this week. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz’s song Egypt Dean walked in the 2014 Ralph Lauren Children’s Fashion Show in Support of Literacy on Monday. Check him out in action, below:
