the oscar-nominated actress quvenzhane wallis is now the face of armani junior and cuter than any child ever created on this planet.
designer giorgio armani said “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.”
the actress who received an oscar nomination for her role in beasts of the southern wild will appear in a remake of the musical annie on christmas day.
proving that roles traditionally played by white actresses are ours for the taking, oscar nominee quvenzhane wallis is portraying the sassy orphan annie. she joins cameron diaz and jamie foxx in the cutest remake of the musical that you’ve ever seen. produced by jay-z and will smith, the movie debuts christmas day 2014.
no, not halle berry’s star trek number. as the youngest oscar nominee in history for her role in beasts of the southern wild, quvenzhane wallis dazzled on the red carpet. she stole my heart as “hushpuppy,” the little girl who lived outside of new orleans in a small community called the bathtub during hurricane katrina. although she didn’t win the award for the best actress, her dress was darling and this picture of her and halle berry is my favorite of the night.
