10-year-old Oscar nominated actress Quvenzhane Wallis is officially the new face of luxury brand Armani Junior making her the first child celebrity to represent the brand.
The young actress has appeared in Oscar-winning drama 12 Years a Slave and will star in this fall’s big-screen adaptation of the musical Annie alongside Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. Photographed by Stefano Azario, Quvenzhane posed in a beautiful black tuxedo with the cutest little puppy ever.
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.”
“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.”
