Quvenzhane Wallis Named the New Face of Armani Jr.

Quvenzhane Wallis for Armani Junior

Ten year old Quvenzhane Wallis stole hearts in the 2012 movie “Beasts of the Southern Wild”, for which she earned an Oscar nom. Little Q was the youngest actress to be so honored. She went on to star in the critically acclaimed film “12 Years a Slave”.

The accolades and major accomplishments continue to roll in for Q. She was just named the face of Giorgio Armani Jr., a high end fashion line for children and teens.

From Rhymeswithsnitch.com via The Hollywood Reporter:

Armani tell The Hollywood Reporter,

“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.”

Quvenzhane was just cast in her next feature film, Counting by 7s, playing a genius child having to fend for herself after her adoptive parents die in a car crash.

      I’m a big history buff, so when I saw that it was based off true events I had to make myself watch it…it’s not for the faint of heart…I’m not a cryer, but when Lupita got whipped by Michael Fassbender I was balling like a baby…

      @Future – Don’t remember her in that either. I will watch this again, because if I missed her I missed more..

      Ms. Q got it going on! It’s going to be great seeing her grow up on film, I hope her parents are grounded and keep her feet planted.

      The movie as a whole wasn’t as bad/graphic as I thought. ONly a few scenes really. Maybe I expected the worst.

      But I don’t remember her in the movie either.

      She WASN’T the boy asking for his momma. Now that I think about it, that was pretty dramatic.

      Lupita MADE that movie tho. The dude that was “star” was sickening. That movie was all about Lupita. :yes:

      I went to HS with 2 sisters with diffrent dads. One was LSLH the other was just LSRH (regular hair). Folks weren’t mean to the other BUT there was comparisons made.

      All’s fair when it comes to phucking. Everyone “discriminates” in one way or another when it comes to phuckin. Whether it’s cause of race (I’ll talk to any race but Asian) or looks (no ugly women) or size (no fat women). :shrugs:

      I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it’s cuz Missy doesn’t want unfair (hurtful) comparisons made between her two very different hued children. I got so pissy when people would compare me and my sister (and we have the same mama and deedy)…but an unfortunate few would say things like: “I’m trying to decide who’s the prettiest.” And promptly get TOLD!

      I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it’s cuz Missy doesn’t want unfair (hurtful) comparisons made between her two very different hued children. I got so pissy when people would compare me and my sister (and we have the same mama and deedy)…but an unfortunate few would say things like: “I’m trying to decide who’s the prettiest.” And promptly get TOLD! We don’t play that. GTFOHWTBS mayne!

      Me and my two brothers are all different colors (same momma) and people used to say one was the outside slave, one was the inside slave, and one was the kitchen wench. smdh. But we never got mad. Shoot, we all think we are better looking than the other one. lol

      I know think you have to be racist to not be into IR. It may be a preference thing.

      ==================

      :thumbsup: Exactly… My older sister is brown, I’m light, and lisissy is pale light with green eyes. Folks always wanted to compare the 3 of us. It’s hard enough anyway, I just wouldn’t go out of my way to make more differences. Also, lilmissy may even internalize and make her own comaprisons. She already run around with yarn braids clipped into her hair, and she has a “nice length” :lol:

      Missy
      I feel you.
      I have cousins who are siblings and the sister is light brown and her brother is DARK! Church peoples talked so bad about them. How “clear” it was they had different daddies etc etc. I know it hurt my male kin cause he only do super light almost yt chick :no:

      She looks adorable. Glad she’s continuing to get work.

      I don’t recall seeing her in 12 Years a Slave, but imdb.com has her credited as playing the role of Solomon’s young daughter.
