It seems that 10-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis has found her own Daddy Warbucks—in the form of Giorgio Armani.

The youngest Academy Awards nominee ever can add yet another impressive achievement to her resume: she’s the new face of Armani Junior. The pint-sized performer appeared in a tailored satin suite 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!”

And it seems the feeling’s mutual.

“Quvenzhané is so talented, despite her young age,” Armani told THR of his latest casting. “Her kindness, curiosity, and openness towards others really struck me, as they are all traits I admire.”

This isn’t her first encounter with the exclusive fashion label, either. The teacup starlet wore a navy tulle Armani gown and shawl to the Academy Awards back in 2013.
