Pint-sized acting cutie Quvenzhane Wallis (pictured), whose talents wowed in the film “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” is now the new face of Armani Junior, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The wonder child, who holds the honor of being the youngest Oscar nominee of all time, is now the first major child celebrity to be the face of the luxe designer label line. The Armani junior collection sports designs that incorporate a classic color palette and show off the brand’s core aesthetics–comfort, style and sustainability.
Ten-year-old Wallis, who most recently co-starred in the Oscar-winning film, “12 Years A Slave,” and who is now gearing up to play the lead role in the old classic children’s musical, “Annie,” told the Reporter how thrilled she is to represent the heritage brand.
“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!” Wallis exclaimed.
“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.”
