Quevenzhane Wallis

If you saw Beasts Of The Southern Wild, Benh Zeitlin's prodigious first foray into feature films, then you will recognise the cherub-like features of Hush Puppy, the ephemeral heroine who lives in the ?Bathtub? and runs happy and ferral in her swamp land. Quevenzhane Wallis at only 10, made quite an impression then, landing her a role in 12 Years A Slave and the lead in the upcoming movie revival of Annie, opposite Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz and Rose Byrne, out this Christmas. Along with becoming one of Hollywood's littlest princess, she has just been announced as the ambassador for Armani Junior. With her blondey afro, her toothy smile and her already dazzling acting cv, she represents something classically Hollywood with an extra zest of mischief, perfect for Giorgio Armani's collection for ickle ones. We adore.
