Quvenzhané Wallis, the 10-year-old actress who exploded onto the big screen with her Oscar-nominated performance in Beasts of the Southern Wild, has been named as the new face of Armani Jr.
Wallis is the first major child star to represent the clothing line.
"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."
