In an exclusive report from Hollywood Reporter it was announced that little Quenzhane Wallis will be the new face of Giorgio Armani’s Junior line.
Says Giorgio Armani: “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.”
Says Wallis: “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.”
We could not be more proud of this little girl, she is talented and beautiful, and it is super hard for me not to say ‘take that Target” for being so shallow.
The above photo was taken by Stefano Azario, and according to the story “he treated her to various outfits almost as characters, imbuing them with humor, irreverence and joy.”
She will be an awesome representative for the company because of her character and ability to shine and step outside of the box.
Her ads are set to launch next month, and I for one cannot wait to see them! Good job princess!
