Quvenzhane Wallis just can’t be stopped this year. After capturing our hearts, and an Oscar-award nomination, in Beasts of the Southern Wild she’s snagged roles in the Oscar-Award winning 12 Years a Slave, and a remake of Annie with Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. However, she’s just broken new ground as the new face for Armani Junior, Giorgio Armani’s new teen line, making her the first major child celebrity to be the face of a luxury brand reported exclusively by The Hollywood Reporter #Winning
Girogio gushes about the young star~
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.
Quvenzhane on her new role~
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.
I’m Letting Little Q all the way Through with this one. This is a major accomplishment for such a young, gifted talent. It’s also really good to see a major House like Armani embracing looks that you don’t see too many other couture brands promoting, so it’s a win/win for them both. Look for the Armani Junior ad campaign to hit the world this June. We’ll be checking for ya Q!
