Quvenzhane Wallis is Officially the New Face of 'Armani Junior'!

Quvenzhane Wallis gets playful with a puppy in this first look at her new gig as the face of Armani Junior!

According to Pret-a-Reporter, the 10-year-old Oscar nominee is the first major child star to head up Giorgio Armani‘s luxury line for children and teens. She was shot by famed photographer Stefano Azario.

“I’m so happy to be chosen by Mr. Armani to be his ambassador for Armani Junior,” Quvenzhane said in a statement. “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, “Quvenzhane 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.”

  • itman

    she’s adorable but i’m kind of really really bothered by the fact that armani uses kids to promote such a self centered / foolish type of thing. For grown ups it’s fine but a little girl shouldn’t have to do that !

    @itman: Well she’s advertising the kids clothes. It’s no different to the Gaps Kids campaigns. Relax, it’s a bit of fun. It’s not like they’ve dressed her up in creepy beauty pageant attire.
