The Huffington Post says,Quvenzhané Wallis can now add “Armani model” to her ever-growing resume.
The adorable 10-year-old is not only the face of Armani Junior, but she is also the very first major child star to be the face of any luxury brand, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
An image from Quvenzhané’s upcoming ads, set to launch globally next month, was revealed Thursday, May 22. In the shot, she is decked out in a black satin suit, white blouse and patent leather flats, looking nothing short of fabulous.
Quvenzhané is so talented, despite her young age,” Giorgio Armani says in a press release. “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, Quvenzhané made the clothing come alive, interpreting it in her own singular way.”
Quvenzhané, who famously wore Armani to the 2013 Oscars when she was nominated for best actress (Beast of the Southern Wild), was excited to have been chosen for the spot.
