Quvenzhané Wallis has become quite a celebrated young talent. Along with her role as the titular character of one of the most beloved hits of all time, she gets to bring the name of Armani for the second time around all in just one year.
For the brand’s Summer/Spring 2015 Campaign, Armani has once again called in Wallis as the face of their brand. With her successful Fall/Winter 2014/2015 campaign just earlier this year, you can be sure that we will be seeing Wallis sporting the brand’s best creations in more public occasions.
This year alone, Wallis has garnered multiple nominations for her role as Annie. Her award nominations include the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress, the Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Young Actress and the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter (THR) in May 2014, Wallis spoke of how honored she was to be chosen as the first child star to be chosen as the face of the line.
“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,” shared on Wallis on THR.
With regards to her meeting Giorgio Armani and her liking his designs, Wallis said, “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.”
"Annie" premiered on Dec. 19, 2014 in domestic theaters. The movie also stars Jamie Foxx as modern-day Daddy Warbucks, Cameron Diaz, Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale.
