“Quvenzhané is so talented, despite her young age. Her kindness, curiosity, and openness towards others really struck me, as they are all traits I admire,” Armani told The Hollywood Reporter of the announcement. “With her insatiable energy, [she] made the clothing come alive, interpreting it in her own singular way.”
Posing with a pup on her shoulder while wearing a tailored black suit, the curly-haired cutie proves she has plenty of spunk to pull off her new role as a high-fashion model.
As for her new gig, Quvenzhané couldn’t be more excited. “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,” she said.
But she may have to watch her closet more closely from now on. “My friends are going to want to borrow all my clothes,” she joked.
Guess what, Quvenzhané? So do we!
