Quvenzhané Wallis, the youngest Oscar nominated actor in history, has landed an Armani ad campaign at the age of 10.
Wallis is the new face of Armani Junior, making her make history once again as the youngest person to land an endorsement deal of this caliber with a luxury fashion house.
Wallis told The Hollywood Reporter she’s “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.”
For his part Giorgio Armani called the Beasts of the Southern Wild actress “so talent,” and gushed that her kindness really resonated with him.
With her “insatiable energy, Quvenzhane made the clothing come alive, interpreting it in her own singular way,” he added.
According to E! Online, Wallis just finished filming Annie with Cameron Diaz as Mrs. Hannigan and Jamie Foxx as Benjamin Stacks. Wallis, of course, plays the lead role of Annie.
