Posted on May 22, 2014
Quvenzhane Wallis is the new face of Armani Junior, a children's line from Giorgio Armani. Annie models a tuxedo and has a puppy on her shoulder in the first photo released from the Fall 2014 Armani Junior campaign, which was photographed by Stefano Azario. Quvenzhane, 10, was nominated for an Oscar in Beasts of the Southern Wild. Her next big film is Annie, which co-stars Cameron Diaz and Jamie Foxx. Annie arrives in theaters in December.
The Hollywood Reporter quotes Quvenzhane as saying, "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!"
Armani says, "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."
