Quvenzhané Wallis Named Face of Armani Junior

Quvenzhané Wallis doesn’t have to wait until “Tomorrow” for her dreams to come true — the sun is already shining brightly on the 10-year-old actress. That’s because the Annie star has just been named the new face of Giorgio Armani’s kids line, Armani Junior.

“Quvenzhané is so talented, despite her young age. Her kindness, curiosity, and openness towards others really struck me, as they are all traits I admire,” Armani told The Hollywood Reporter of the announcement. “With her insatiable energy, [she] made the clothing come alive, interpreting it in her own singular way.”

Posing with a pup on her shoulder while wearing a tailored black suit, the curly-haired cutie proves she has plenty of spunk to pull off her new role as a high-fashion model.

Of course, this isn’t the first time the Oscar-nominated actress has worn the luxury brand — she attended last year’s Academy Awards in an Armani navy tulle gown and matching shawl.

As for her new gig, Quvenzhané couldn’t be more excited. “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,” she said.

But she may have to watch her closet more closely from now on. “My friends are going to want to borrow all my clothes,” she joked.

Guess what, Quvenzhané? So do we!

She’s a “Cuteheart”. I hope her money is safely tucked away in a trust or Bank!

Beautiful young lady and a great role model to other young girls. Her personality and demeanor is a testament to her parents dedication to her. What also makes her special is that she is a child and not made to seem older or sexualized. Her Mother does a fine job dressing her as a child of 10. More mothers out here could take lessons. Way to go Quvenzhane!

Miss K…her name is not ugly. Just because its not Suzy or Ann or Jennifer doesnt make it less than. Your remark comes from a place of ignorance. You dont have to like it but you should either do one or both of these two things: try to open your mind to understand its origins and its uniqueness or as my mom would say if you cant say something nice dont say NOTHING at all!
