It seems that 10-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis, the youngest Academy Award-nominee ever, can add yet another impressive achievement to her resume: she’s the new face of Armani Junior.

The young performer appeared in a tailored satin suit accessorized with a pup on her shoulder in the kids brand’s latest ad, showing off just how adorable high fashion can be.

“I’m so happy to be chosen by Mr. Armani to be his ambassador for Armani Junior,” Wallis told The Hollywood Reporter. “I felt the same excitement when I got cast for a major film. Me? Wow!”

Memorial Day Tribute 2014


 

 

This is the day when we think about what we have and why we have it. Men and women from the Revolutionary War to today’s conflicts in the Middle East have fought and to many have even given given their lives…the ultimate gift that a human being can give to their country. I wish it wasn’t necessary and hope and pray that it will soon not be necessary ever again. I am a Pacifist but I give my respect and honor to everyone who has ever served with our Armed Forces. Thank you for giving part of your lives. May everyone who has served find peace and healing. Thank you for your courage.

 

Today I worked in my garden and porch. There is much to do but I thought I would show you what is done. I hope you enjoy my pictures.
