Pint sized actress Quvenzhané Wallis has been named the new face of Armani Junior!
In the brand’s promo pic, lensed by Stefano Azario, she’s pictured in a tailored black suit, cuddling a pup.
She told the Hollywood Reporter, “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.”
Giorgio Armani said he chose the 10-year-old star because:
“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. 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.”
Congrats are certainly in order! I can’t wait to see what’s next for this burgeoning star!
